Daniel Theobald is the CEO of Vecna Robotics. His company recently raised $50M for their Series B and has been helping automate materials handling for global clients like FedEx. Daniel is a passionate leader who is dedicated to the idea that technology can be used to improve life for everyone on the planet.

Daniel is also a co-founder of Mass Robotics - an independent, non-profit organization serving as the innovation hub for robotics and connected devices in the Greater Boston, MA area, so he has his pulse on the innovation of the robotics industry. But I wanted to learn more about the robotics company that believes the future belongs to those who empower humans.

We talk about how robotics, AI and automation help keep the supply chain running, the importance of robots and humans working together to increase workflow efficiency, and what the robotics industry needs to do to push interoperability forward. We also discuss why humans and robots are better together.
