He studied Computer Science and Systems in undergrad at Rensselaer Polytechnic, with focus on robotics, controls, and electrical engineering. He's been programming professionally using C++ for 12 years. At Exyn, Billy focuses on the autonomy of the robot- how does the robot build a searchable map of the environment? How does the robot efficiently generate safe paths from A to B? How does the robot explore the environment in a way that maximizes information gain?
