What happens when you give the most accomplished robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence researchers a boatload of money and a mandate to create? Toyota is about to find out.

The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) just announced its technology leadership team at CES. And holy cow, talk about an All-Star lineup.

Comparisons have been drawn to famous industrial laboratories like Bell Labs and PARC, which are jointly responsible for an impressive chunk of silicon-age advances.
