This week I was super excited to sit down with Brian Ringley from Boston Dynamics.

Boston Dynamics is a world leader in mobile robots, tackling some of the toughest robotics challenges. Boston Dynamics has an extraordinary and fast-growing technical team of engineers and scientists who seamlessly combine advanced analytical thinking with bold engineering and boots-in-the-mud practicality.

Brian is the Construction Technology Manager at Boston Dynamics where he supports AECOO customer applications for the Spot platform and promotes the development of new autonomous behavior that adds value to construction project delivery. Prior to Boston Dynamics, he was a Senior Construction Automation Researcher at WeWork where he managed the construction robotics research program and contributed to initiatives in design automation and modular prefabrication. Previously he taught at the University of Cincinnati DAAP, City Tech, City College, and most recently at Pratt GAUD where he led seminars in computational fabrication and industrial robotics.

In this episode you will discover:

- How can designers and architects can drive the process for manufacture - The future of field robotics in construction - How Boston Dynamics is directing it's research into commercialisation and the business needs within the AEC industries
