Toyota said in a statement that Fei-Fei Li, the head of Stanford’s Computer Vision Lab, and Daniela Rus, the director of MIT’s artificial intelligence lab, will serve as joint leads for their respective schools, and Gill Pratt, the former manager of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, will join Toyota as the director of the initiative.


The Japanese car manufacturer—which produces America’s best-selling car—put its decision to invest down partly to a desire to figure out ways to increase mobility for the elderly. This is a real problem for Japan, where an aging population is being asked to stay in the workforce longer, and many companies are looking to robotics to help solve the labor shortage.
