Get updated on the latest in robotic news and innovations in the field of drones, virtual robots and break through advancements in artificial intelligence
Imitation learning is a branch of machine learning that trains machines to mimic human behavior while completing particular tasks.
Stanford engineers have developed an electronic glove containing sensors that could one day give robotic hands the sort of dexterity that humans take for granted.
Eating food is an experience that tends to be about taste and texture and how the food looks and smells. Our focus goes from what’s going on on the plate to what’s going on in our mouths, without a lot of concern about what happens.
When a patient who needs an organ transplantation is finally matched with a donor, every second matters. A longer wait between when an organ is removed from a donor and when it is placed into a recipient is associated.
A useful general home robot, as far as I’m concerned, needs to be able to do three things: fold laundry, wash dishes, and clean toilets. That’s all it would take to make me happy.
Hi-tech Singapore has deployed an autonomous robot with a swivelling camera for a head and flashing lights to patrol a summit venue—arresting the attention of amused passers-by who stopped to snap selfies.
While robots have prepared entire breakfasts since 1961, general manipulation in the real world is arguably an even more complex problem than autonomous driving.
Researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and National Oceanography Centre have recently used behavior trees (BTs) to design modular, versatile, and robust control architectures for critical missions.
Anyone who’s been up close and personal with an industrial robot will tell you that these machines have an uncanny, almost unsettling presence. Rationally you know that they’re programmed automatons.
In the future, robots could play a key role in healthcare settings, easing the lives of the elderly and assisting vulnerable individuals. Researchers at Imperial College London have recently created Robot DE NIRO.
With the launch of Furhat, one can see a flip side of the pundit-nervousness over an evil empire of smart space kiddies, pups and muscle-bound guardians turning on us, no mercy included .
Video Friday is your weekly selection of awesome robotics videos, collected by your Automaton bloggers. We’ll also be posting a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics events for the next few months.
