Robotics Seminar Series: Lee Redden


During this talk, Lee will go through his entrepreneurial journey - meeting a co-founder, finding the right idea, leaving his Ph.D. program, starting a company, raising money from top VC’s on Sand Hill Road and helping to build a business and team that was eventually acquired by John Deere for $305M.


Lee Redden is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Co-Founder of Blue River Technology, a company that builds robotic weeding systems for agriculture that use computer vision and deep learning to detect every individual plant and take action on a centimeter plant-by-plant basis. The company was recently acquired by John Deere. Lee has a background in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science with a deep focus on machine learning and computer vision. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Stanford with short working stints at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
