    Alphabet's public-facing history with robotics has, thus far, been a spotty one. Most notably, Google X's big acquisition push culminated in its selling Boston Dynamics to Softbank. Alphabet/Google's subsequent approach has been less flashy and focused on more immediate robotic tasks.
    Unveiled today through the X blog , Intrinsic certainly fits the bill. In fact, it's kind of an ideal take for Google. Effectively, the latest branch of the X Development tree is concerned with software for industrial robotics - those big, heavy machines that are perhaps not as nimble as many manufacturers...

    Google's parent-company Alphabet has a birth to announce: a new company called Intrinsic which will focus on building software for industrial robots. The subsidiary will be one of Alphabet's “other bets” - relatively speculative firms focusing on new technology like Waymo , Wing , and Verily .
    Details on what exactly Intrinsic is building or who its customers will be are unclear. A blog post from the company's new CEO, Wendy Tan White, discusses Intrinsic's ambitions in broad terms, saying it will “unlock the creative and economic potential of industrial robotics for millions more...
