Intrinsic, Siemens Join to Advance Integration of AI-based Robotics and Automation Technology

NUREMBERG, Germany, Jun 23, 2023 – Intrinsic, an Alphabet company, and Siemens have teamed up to explore integrations and interfaces between Intrinsic’s robotics software, which is designed for easy use of AI-based capabilities, and Siemens Digital Industries with their open and interoperable portfolio for automating and operating industrial production.

Intrinsic has a world-class team of robotics and AI experts with a strong footprint in advanced perception, machine learning and reinforcement learning. Siemens’ automation engineers and software developers have industry-leading domain know-how in automation technology in the industrial space.

Currently, the development and runtime environments for AI-based robotics and automation components differ significantly in their development paradigms and make integration cumbersome. For example, deploying advanced robotic capabilities such as pose estimation, robot manipulation or automated path planning are complex processes that typically require teams of domain experts to operationalize. The two companies intend to investigate new methods to seamlessly bridge the gaps between robotics, automation engineering and IT development.

Bridging both worlds will speed up the development process of flexible, AI-enabled robot work cells and facilitate their seamless operation. This will make industrial robotics more accessible and usable for more businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers – particularly for new market segments like small and medium-sized companies.

“Intrinsic’s mission is to democratize access to robotics. However, robotics is rarely decoupled from the production environment, where the most value is created today,” says Wendy Tan White, CEO at Intrinsic. “That’s why working with Siemens Digital Industries, an industry leading automation expert, is an exciting opportunity to bring joint solutions to the market in the future, so many more businesses can benefit from the value that robotics and automation can offer.”

“Siemens is dedicated to bringing IT and OT closer together – the key principle of our Industrial Operations X portfolio”, says Rainer Brehm, CEO of Factory Automation at Siemens. “We are impressed by Intrinsic’s open approach to industrial robotics and we are excited to explore with Intrinsic how coupling of AI-based robots and automation technology can be further accelerated.” 

Both Siemens and Intrinsic will be exhibiting at automatica 2023, the leading trade fair for intelligent automation and robotics, in Munich, Germany, from 27 – 30 June. On Tuesday 27 June, 1 – 2 PM CET, Intrinsic CEO Wendy Tan White and Rainer Brehm, CEO Factory Automation at Siemens, will join the munich_i CEO Round Table, “Software: revolution for automation and robotics?”

Under the motto “Accelerate Transformation”, Siemens will be showcasing the latest technologies and specific use cases from the world of robotics, making them tangible for visitors in a test zone.
