New round seeks solutions in six categories, including FinTech, VR/AR/MR and Drones
Caitlin Ju for The Stanford Daily: Stanford researchers in the Computational Vision and Geometry Lab have designed an autonomously navigating robot prototype that they say understands implicit social conventions and human behavior. Named “Jackrabbot” after the swift but cautious jackrabbit, the visually intelligent and socially amicable robot is able to maneuver crowds and pedestrian spaces. A white ball on wheels, the Jackrabbot is built on a Segway system and contains a computing unit and multiple sensors that acquire a 3-D structure of the surrounding environment. 360-degree cameras and GPS also enhance the robot’s navigation and detection capabilities. To interact smoothly in public settings, the robot has to know how to avoid someone in a natural way, how to yield the right-of-way and how to leave personal space, among other skills. Cont'd...
FAA Administrator Michael Huerta to keynote at largest dedicated commercial drone event
microdrones™ and DLRG Horneburg/Altes Land e.V. demonstrate promising new water rescue tactic using drones and compact flotation devices
Crowds watched in awe from the banks of the Elbe River as the UAV rapidly flew to the person in distress and dropped a compact rescue device called RESTUBE, which automatically inflated. The swimmer was able to grab onto the RESTUBE and float until they could be reached by a human lifeguard and brought back to safety.
Sony Establishes 'Research Award Program' for North American Universities to Accelerate Innovation and New Technologies
The Sony Research Award Program comprises two submission categories: Faculty Innovation Awards and the 2016 Focus Research Awards. Each award will create new opportunities for a faculty to engage and participate in forward-thinking research, leading to the introduction of breakthrough technologies that will help influence future industries and markets.

Launch of Three Industry Initiatives: Support of Women in UAS; Education Efforts on Privacy Best Practices; and Enable UAS Technology with UTM Partners
Business, Government and Academic Leaders Meet at Earley Information Science To Discuss Where AI Is, and Where It Is Going
From Gizmag: Researchers at Siemens have created a new prototype electric motor specifically designed for aircraft that weighs in at just 50 kg (110 lb) and is claimed to produce about 260 kW (348 hp) at just 2,500 RPM. With a quoted power five times greater than any comparable powerplant, the new motor promises enough grunt to get aircraft with take-off weights of up to 1,800 kg (2 ton) off the ground... ... As a result, the new aircraft electric drive system achieves a claimed weight-to-performance ratio of 5 kW per kilogram. This ratio is an exceptional figure – especially if compared to similarly powerful industrial electric motors used in heavy machinery that produce less than 1 kW per kilogram, or even to more efficient electric motors for vehicles that generate around 2 kW per kilogram...
