Hello! My name is Jonas, I am an entrepreneur focused in the areas of AI and robotics. My passion is in building a better world using technology!
I currently serve as Founder and CEO of Rav.ai – the world’s first automated content generation platform for video – and also Tetel.ai– focused on machine perception.
Previously I co-founded COSY, Inc a spinout of my research with Professor Kostas Daniilidis. I have had advisory or contribution roles at Northrop Grumman, Emergent Views, Brightday.IO, and Azavea. My primary interests are in computer perception, machine learning, and mobile robotics. Previously I worked as a Research Scientist at Upenn’s GRASP Laboratory with Professor Vijay Kumar, and before that, I worked on autonomous vehicles at Carnegie Mellon’s General Motors Lab.
I hold degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and Robotics from the University of Pennsylvania.
