Quora via Forbes: I think we'll see this across industries where basic tasks that can be easily automated eventually will be, and it will pave the way for a workforce that is more productive and efficient.
Ellen Huet for Bloomberg: A Silicon Valley startup is the guardian of the building blocks of robot life.
Melia Robinson for Business Insider: On a recent night outside the offices of Knightscope, a robotics startup in the heart of Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man allegedly toppled a five-foot tall, 300-pound robot to the ground.
Red Herring: ELLIQ comprises a tablet screen and a small, bobble-headed assistant, which looks like two bell jars glommed together, that interacts with elderly users, the device and humans on the other end of communication.
Adam Conner-Simons, CSAIL via MIT News: CSAIL approach allows robots to learn a wider range of tasks using some basic knowledge and a single demo.
Ryan Terry for Phys.org: Hur's prior research helped him answer two questions: "Can we predict a fall? Can we then reduce the number of falls?"
B©r©nice Magistretti for VentureBeat: Picking apples may seem like a fun weekend activity, but it's actually backbreaking manual labor. Abundant Robotics wants to help agricultural growers shoulder this task and today announced funding of $10 million, led by GV, to commercialize its apple-picking robot.
Devin Coldewey for TechCrunch: Everyone knows the robots are coming, so we should probably get to work figuring out how we can coexist. That's the mission of Veo Robotics, which is working on a system that gives robots spatial awareness of every object in their reach.
Michael Kahn for Barron's: With the sector soaring, we found two smaller players - Cognex and Mazor Robotics - to keep an eye on.
Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: Construction seems like an industry that, were I still living in Silicon Valley, I would be tempted to call "ripe for disruption." Researchers at the MIT Media Lab agree, pointing out in a paper just published in Science Robotics that construction "relies on traditional fabrication technologies that are dangerous, slow, and energy-intensive." Hey, sounds like a job for some robots, right?
Brett Molina , USA TODAY: Jack Ma, the founder and chairman of Chinese e-commerce titan Alibaba, predicts "a robot will likely be on the cover of Time magazine as the best CEO" in 30 years, according to published reports.
