The firm was based again in 2017 as an extension of CEO Samir Menon’s Stanford thesis, described by Dexterity thusly, “Menon labored on a management principle framework to explain how the human mind controls and coordinates the physique, which serves as a mannequin to distill human talent into mathematical applications that management robots in a sleek human-like method.”
