Nick Sweet

Lead Software Engineer

Nick Sweet develops software for Tailos’s autonomous robots. He has an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering Sciences from the University of Colorado, Boulder. As part of their Collaborative Human-Robot Interaction lab, he researched methods for robots to perform Bayesian state estimation using complex language from a human partner. While earning a B. Eng. in Computer Engineering from Concordia University, he co-founded a student society dedicated to building satellites, rockets, and robots for space exploration, with second- or first-place wins in nearly all competitions entered. He also took part in the 2013 Caltech Space Challenge to design a crewed mission to Phobos. Nick is a self-avowed film snob, always up for debate on what it takes to tell a great story.
