Robots invade the construction site

Theresa Arevalo was in high school when she first tried
finishing drywall at her brother’s construction company.
“It’s a fine art,” she says of mudding—applying and
smoothing drywall. “Like frosting a cake, you have to give the
illusion that the wall is flat.”

Fast-forward a few decades: Arevalo now works at Canvas, a company that’s built a
robot using
artificial
intelligence
that’s capable of drywalling with almost as much
artistry as a skilled human worker.

The robot has been deployed, under Arevalo’s supervision, at
several construction sites in recent months, including the new
Harvey Milk Terminal at San Francisco International Airport and an
office building connected to the Chase Center arena in San
Francisco.
