2130 Labs is all about you! Dov Katz established the company in July 2020. The company deals with mental health therapy that includes cannabis by enabling customers to explore and share preferences and experiences for future natural medicine.
So, who is Dubi Katz?
Dov Katz began his education with a bachelor’s degree in computer science, electrical and electronics engineering. After falling in love with the industry he carried on and did his master’s degree specialising in robotics, computer vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Dov had so much passion for the technological industry, he graduated with a PHD and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Robotics Industry of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh.
He created a new field called Interactive Perception, in which robots learn about their environment through trial and error as though they were children. The robot learns how to operate with objects by playing with them. Later, he applied this technology to a US Army effort to create a robot that can clean mounds of things after a terrorist attack or an earthquake.
After studying for a long time and gaining some experience in the industry he became one of the first employees in the Oculus company to lead the field of computer vision. “I figured out how to track the user’s head movement, which was a major challenge in the product”, said Dov. As the company grew so did his team.
In the last few years Dubi Katz has been involved in an enclosed agriculture project called Growin.Ag where he has helped build a robotic plant growing system under very controlled conditions. This system is important for the future of the world as the climate deteriorates. “The ability to grow any crop while saving water and electricity and ensure product quality by using data and AI is very significant”, he said.
What does Dov’s company, 2130 Labs have to offer?
“The business is in the realm of medical equipment for the natural extracts industry. We’re developing a device that resembles an inkjet printer. It will combine a number of natural-material cartridges to create a therapy that is unique to each individual. Our AI adapts the therapy the next time with the help of an input sent to the device after each use, resulting in an exact fit for each person. Similar to Spotify for music, but for mental wellness – with the goal of assisting people that are suffering from anxiety, insomnia, depression, obesity, energy, lack of concentration, and other issues.” Dov told us.
Dubi Katz will continue to fulfil the company’s dream and hopefully in the next few years, to market their customised products in North America that will help a lot of people deal with their mental health problems.
