Boris Sofman

As an engineer and researcher with experience in building diverse robotic systems—from consumer products to off-road autonomous vehicles and bomb-disposal robots—Boris is making it his life’s work to create products that people would not expect to be possible.

Prior to founding Anki, Boris worked at iRobot and Neato Robotics. He earned a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. from the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University.

Boris debuted Anki’s vision to bring robotics out of the labs and into people’s lives at Apple’s WWDC event in June 2013.
