Hugging Face, a startup providing open-source AI and machine learning tools for developers is launching a robotics project led by former Tesla scientist Remi Cadene.

Cadene announced the news via a post on X, formerly Twitter.

“After 3 years at Tesla and Optimus, I am thrilled to announce that I joined Hugging Face to start an ambitious open robotics project!” Cadence wrote.

He added that the project is hiring engineers to build “real robots” in Paris.

While few details on the project have been released, Hugging Face also posted a job listing for an Embodied Robotics Engineer in France. 

“In this role, you will be responsible for designing, building, and maintaining open-source and low cost robotic systems that integrate AI technologies, specifically in deep learning and embodied AI,” the post said. 

The company also wrote that the role seeks to “push the boundaries of what's possible in robotics and AI.”

Hugging Face has previously focused on software, including its machine learning codebase and open-source chatbot, Hugging Chat, which rivals OpenAI’s ChatGPT. With its latest announcement, the company throws its hat into the increasingly popular humanoid robotics race.
