The Robots are Coming

Over the next five years automation will impact sectors of the economy that have been insulated from change by social norms or regulatory barriers to entry. This will occur because technological solutions are readily available but not yet deployed.

Autonomous Driving Technology

We believe three components are critical for turning self-driving cars into a mass product: power-efficient hardware, optimized algorithms and a solid regulatory environment. While none of these components are fully ready at this stage, competition and advances in technology are speeding the process for the first two.

Be Polite to Machines!

Machines won't be receptive to emotional, snide, impetuous, plaintive, vague or rambling communication. The algorithms will gently correct our moods and keep inquiring, relentlessly reasonable - or push the matter off to be dealt with later because they're not getting a useful answer from us.

Artificial Intelligence Fever in Japan: 40000 people visited first Japan AI expo

Though AI topics are not new to Japan and the companies promoting their products were not completely new; all of sudden a surge, huge interest in Artificial Intelligence among most of the mid aged workers, salary men in Japan has risen.

Waymo Is Officially Testing Self-Driving Trucks

Recent research by companies like Waymo are paving the way for others and their own work, and it won't be long before self-driving trucks are on the road once and for all.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
