In Robinson's 35-year career, he's been a board member of a venture capital firm and an adviser for two more.
And he's been watching this trend closely, as some of the most influential companies and investors are rushing to fund this exciting new technology.
- Microsoft's CEO jumped in with a $150 million investment, saying this technology has "mind-blowing potential."
