Andrew Ng, the respected computer scientist and entrepreneur, is getting his hands dirty, metaphorically speaking. Having co-founded education startup Coursera and built artificial intelligence units for Google (googl) and then Baidu, Ng now has his sights on factories. "I've been to so many manufacturing plants," says Ng, whose new startup, Landing.ai,
