The Amazon (AMZN) CEO posted a picture of himself walking next to a robotic canine built by robotics firm Boston Dynamics.
"Taking my new dog for a walk at the #MARS2018 conference," Bezos tweeted.
Amazon's invite-only robotics conference, which focuses on machine-learning, robotic trends and space, kicked off on Monday.
