PBS (Radio West Films) “Autonomous” Released

Autonomous Film

[San Diego, CA] — Autonomous Living Technologies (AULI.TECH), a pioneering startup at the forefront of developing Edge AI, Tiny ML and robotics-enabled assistive technologies for individuals with disabilities, is proud to announce that its co-founder and Chairman, Spero Koulouras, is featured in the short film entitled “Autonomous” from Radiowest Films on PBS Utah. This documentary, directed by Delaney Plant, shines a light on the personal journey and innovative work of Koulouras, a respected computer scientist diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. 

Despite facing the challenges of ALS, Koulouras’s determination to maintain independence and improve the lives of people with disabilities has led to the development of groundbreaking technologies. “Autonomous” provides a compelling look into how Koulouras and his team at AULI.TECH are revolutionizing affordable, customizable assistive devices using artificial intelligence and robotics.

As Koulouras explains in the film, “The tech is just now getting good enough that it can be used to make something for one person affordably.  And we don’t have to be Tony Stark and we don’t need to fly, but if we can walk and use our limbs a little longer, we can dramatically reduce the cost of care and maintain independence.”

In the documentary, viewers are introduced to Cato, the flagship gesture-based control device designed by Koulouras and his co-founders Finn Biggs and Micheal Fierro. Cato enables users to interact with computers through simple head movements, empowering individuals with limited mobility to regain a significant level of autonomy. 

Koulouras’s story is not just one of technological innovation but also a deeply personal narrative of resilience, adaptability, and the human spirit’s capacity to overcome societal obstacles. “My brain is fully functional and my brain wants to do things my body can’t anymore,” Koulouras explains in “Autonomous”. “Autonomy is critical to my mental wellbeing, and I want to build devices that keep me and many other people with disabilities independent as long as possible.”

AULI.TECH invites everyone to watch “Autonomous” on PBS to learn more about Koulouras’s journey and the transformative impact of AULI.TECH’s products on the disability community. The documentary is a testament to the power of technology to create a more inclusive world where everyone can live autonomously.
