Founder & Team

The Robokind Foundation sees robotics and AI as tools for humans. Just as the most powerful tools of their time – the hand axe, the steam engine and the computer – changed our world permanently, these future technologies will also change our work processes and our world decisively. The Robokind Foundation team is working to break down prejudices among people and to support the use of these technologies, as well as to explore new technologies themselves.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sami Haddadin

“Robotics and Artificial Intelligence will fundamentally change our world like few technologies before. The Robokind – Robotics for Mankind Foundation wants to make a central contribution to giving all people access to this key technology.”
