Nohtal Partansky is the Co-Founder and CEO of Sorting Robotics, the premier industrial automation technology company for the cannabis industry.

Nohtal is a serial entrepreneur and former NASA-JPL engineer.

Today, Sorting Robotics is solving those problems with AI-driven machines deployed across multiple states and in Canada.
