Our guest is Tez Sawanobori who is the founder and CEO of the Connected Robotics based in Tokyo. 

We have already seen various applications of robots to our daily life. For example, a Japanese older couple lives with a robot as their close friend to ease their loneliness. 

Tez develops robots that can manage skillful tasks with advanced technology and AI for the restaurant industry. The restaurant industry has been known for constantly struggling with finding kitchen staff who can maintain their passion and energy under pressure for long hours. Tez has a mission to improve the conditions. 

In this episode, we will discuss how Tez got into robots, why he decided to focus on the food industry, what robots he has developed so far, how we can work effectively with robots instead of competing against each other and much, much more!!!
