Microsoft and Sanctuary AI Collaborate to Advance General-Purpose Robots

Microsoft has unveiled a strategic partnership with Sanctuary AI to enhance AI capabilities for general-purpose robots, prominently featuring Sanctuary’s humanoid, Phoenix. Under this collaboration, Sanctuary AI will leverage Microsoft’s Azure cloud services to develop sophisticated “Large Behavior Models” (LBMs), designed to help AI systems learn from direct real-world interactions. This initiative will propel AI advancements across several sectors, including automotive and manufacturing, signaling Microsoft’s deepening commitment to the future of humanoid robotics. This follows Microsoft’s investment in Figure Robotics, a key player in the same field. In addition to Microsoft’s collaboration with Sanctuary AI, other companies in the robotics and AI space such as Knightscope, Inc. (NASDAQ:KSCP), Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions Inc. (OTCMKTS:AITX), Wrap Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:WRAP), Evolv Technologies Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:EVLV), and SoundThinking Inc (NASDAQ:SSTI) are making strides in advancing technology for various industries.

Knightscope, Inc. (NASDAQ:KSCP) is a leader in robotics and AI technologies for public safety. Based in Silicon Valley, this advanced security technology firm specializes in constructing fully Autonomous Security Robots (ASR). These robots are designed to prevent, detect, and report incidents, offering unparalleled situational awareness to security and public safety personnel. With its groundbreaking technology, Knightscope aims to combat crime effectively, ensuring the safety of residential, commercial, educational, and public spaces. This innovative public safety company’s ultimate goal is to contribute to making the United States the safest nation globally.

Knightscope just reached a significant achievement by entering the federal sector. On May 2, 2024, the company announced the deployment of a K5 GOV Autonomous Security Robot (ASR) at the Audie L. Murphy VA Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, in collaboration with the US Department of Veterans Affairs. This marks an important milestone in Knightscope‘s expansion journey.

Following three years of dedicated efforts, Knightscope earned an Authority to Operate from FedRAMP, paving the way for broader adoption of its technologies across various federal departments and agencies. The designation of “K5 GOV” signifies a revamped hardware and software architecture tailored to meet rigorous U.S. Federal Government standards, streamlining adoption and procurement processes for agencies.

William Santana Li, Chairman and CEO of Knightscope, expressed gratitude to the company’s tireless team and emphasized their commitment to supporting the nation’s veterans. 

Knightscope‘s K5 GOV is now accessible through the GSA Schedule, facilitated by their veteran-owned small business partner, MediaNow Inc. Furthermore, the company’s compliance with the Buy America and Buy American Act underscores its dedication to bolstering the U.S. economy and upholding domestic manufacturing standards.

These advancements not only broaden the Total Addressable Market (TAM) for Knightscope but also contribute to its sales momentum, bringing it closer to profitability.
