With Ama­zon and other man­u­fac­tur­ers shipping hun­dreds of mil­lions of boxes each month and work­ers in­creas­ingly anx­ious about con­tract­ing Covid-19, some re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties are turn­ing to AMP Ro­bot­ics. Its AI-pow­ered ro­bots use com­puter vi­sion to iden­tify paper, plas­tic and card­board on a con­veyor belt, then sort them with a vac­uum grip­per. Rev­enue, which has been ris­ing 50% each quar­ter in 2020, is on track for an es­ti­mated $20 mil­lion this year. “Be­fore our tech­nol­ogy, the only way to do this was to have some­one with a clip­board try­ing to keep up with these ma­te­ri­als streams,” says Horowitz, 32.
