Jim Tung, a fellow from Mathworks, a leading developer of mathematical computing software, breaks down this cutting-edge technology. He lays out AI’s profound implications for virtually every sector of the economy.
Military exoskeletons are being developed by China and Japan, which reverse their leadership roles in comparison with civilian exoskeleton development.
Exoskeleton development is an area of technology R&D where China and Japan are pursuing different paths, with implications for military, industrial, and healthcare use.
UC Berkeley has developed a robotic learning technique that enables robots to complete tasks like a baby would — by playing with objects and then imagining how to get the task done.
When we look back on 2017, we’ll remember a back-flipping robot, the arrival of social robots, brain-controlled robots, major developments for autonomous vehicles, the rise of mobile manipulators, and a certain security robot that drove into a water fountain.
AI funding made up many of the transactions in 2017’s penultimate week. Robotics Business Review’s weekly roundup also looks at deals around sensors, warehouse automation, surgical robots, and more.
Four university projects are leading the way for robot train inspection and maintenance and were recognized by the UK Rail Safety and Standards Board. Automation can help relieve human workers from the burden of tedious and dangerous tasks.
ABB and Kawasaki are collaborating internationally to help educate potential users and the general public on the benefits of cobots such as theirs. Their push for cobot standards, or at least “common industry approaches,” won’t affect their existing YuMi and duAro lines.
In this Essential Interview, Dr. Jun Ho Oh, director of the Humanoid Research Center at KAIST and co-founder of Rainbow Robotics Co., talks about the challenges of creating a robust humanoid robot and the nascent market for commercial androids.
Leaders who employ robotics and artificial intelligence “workers” will face important questions about capabilities, competencies, and ethics.
RPA, or robotic process automation, is coming to companies large and small, but they need to evaluate which tasks are best performed by AI and which are still best for humans to do.
The U.K. manufacturing and logistics sector has joined several events focusing on how British RAS can help improve efficiency and provide competitive advantage. However, can academic-industrial partnerships overcome the U.K.’s lag in industrial automation?
UAS research in Denmark has supported deployment of drones to North Greenland for Arctic studies. The collaboration between university, government, and business partners is a model for European and international drone commercialization.
Model developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory could reduce false positives and unnecessary surgeries for breast cancer.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute is creating autonomous snake-like robots that can navigate through the rubble, confined spaces, and rough terrain left in the aftermath of a disaster and send images and information to search-and-rescue teams.
The challenges our world faces are growing by the day. We can’t afford to have a lack of engineers working to solve these problems. Here are a few fun ways to kids interested in engineering.
Security challenges facing automation include Google Home Mini and privacy, DJI’s new local data mode, and Ukraine’s weaponized UGVs. Read more in this week’s roundup of global robotics developments.
In January 2018, Jing Xiao will become the new director of the Robotics Engineering Program at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Currently the UNC Charlotte site director for the Center on Robots and Sensors for the Human Well-being, Xiao has been conducting critical research in haptics and real-time adaptive motion planning.
Vehicle insurers have joined regulators, consumers, and truck drivers in warily watching the developments around autonomous vehicles.
MIT CSAIL’s new CornerCameras system uses information about light reflections to detect objects around corners and measure their speed and trajectory in real-time.
The UAS Denmark International Test Center & Cluster is intended to be hub for European drone testing, with friendly government regulation, access to university research, and an entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Neither U.S. businesses nor the federal government should take American robotics leadership for granted; RoboBusiness 2017 will be an opportunity to show and see where automation users, markets, and policies are headed.
RoboBusiness U.S. is dedicated to advancing business with automation, so why should governments care? Here are four conference sessions that connect robotics and AI with the need for policy and strategy.
In the latest Essential Interview excerpt, CMU Professor Howie Choset talks about his research into snake robots, robotics collaboration with other researchers, and commercializing products with students.
RoboBusiness 2017 will include presentations in its Expo Theater and Startup U. stages that can help startups, engineers, and end users learn about the automation market, career development, and tools to help their organizations compete.
