Affordable cob homes built by AI drones - Daniel Weddle & Zach Dwiel - BS069

Well, there's a title I didn't expect to write when I started this podcast! Today I'm talking to Danny and Zach from Terran Robotics about their work training AI drones to build cob homes.

Now this might sound a little crazy when you are first introduced to the idea, but the logic behind it is solid. To make affordable homes,  build with the cheapest material and reduce the labor costs.

Have a listen to the work that Danny and Zach are up to today and let me know what you think!
