World’s First Robot Employment Agency

Musashi AI, which bills itself the world’s first robot employment agency, believes that it can revolutionize manufacturing with its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered robots.

A joint venture between Japan’s Musashi Seimitsu – a Honda Motor Corporation Affiliate Company – and Israeli company SixAI, MusashiAI treats robots as a service that companies can lease on a flexible basis.

“Basically, if you are a company that has a need for a robotic solution, you partner with us like with any [staffing] agency,” Fenig said.

According to Fenig, the cost of leasing the technology varies according to a business’s specific needs but generally ranges anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000 per month. At the moment MusashiAI is focusing their products on automating the manufacturing floor and offer two AI solutions: a forklift, and a quality control visual inspector.

The firm has also developed a proprietary kit that can transform any traditional forklift into a fully autonomous mobile robot. (JPost / VFI News)
