Academics who want to start a robotics company have to adjust to a different set of metrics on what makes a good robot. VCs who are asked to fund robotics companies have a hard time evaluating what is hard and what is easy to achieve in the presented plans. Both groups have difficulty predicting whether the market will be responsive to a radically new solution. This talk lays out the issues and ways to think about all three problems.
