Lewis AndersonCEO and CoFounder at Traptic
Lewis is CEO of Traptic, which he cofounded to solve a critical labor shortage in the world’s food production system using giant robots. Currently, $200B worth of produce is picked by hand, but a large percentage is wasted because not enough people are available to pick it. To solve this, Traptic developed a custom patented gripper, an intelligent vision system, and a durable robotic platform. These giant robots are saving the world’s food production system by doing the work people don’t want to do. Before starting Traptic, Lewis built software for PowerPoint at Microsoft which has been used by hundreds of millions of users. He started his career building autonomous airplanes and studying Computer Science at UC San Diego.
