After running robotics labs at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Texas, Andrea Thomaz decided to move beyond academia. In 2017, she and her former grad student Vivian Chu founded Diligent Robotics to bring their technology for socially aware robotic coworkers into healthcare.
