How Will Robots Learn?

The basic idea of AI problem-solving is very simple, but its implementation is not so simple. The AI robot collects information about a situation through sensors. The computer compares this information to stored data and decides what the information suggests. The computer runs through various possible actions and predicts which action will be most successful based on the collected information.

Interview with Shaoshan Liu and Zhe Zhang of PerceptIn

Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.

One Step Closer to Lifelike Robots

A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.

Q&A with Hillcrest Labs - High Value AHRS/IMUs Enable Low Cost Robot Navigation

The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.

Four Robotic Adoption Tips Manufacturers Can Learn From Medical Industries

Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.

Is There a Robo-advisor in Your Future?

The process of building a diversified investment portfolio is a substantial advantage for robo-advisors. The account setup process usually takes minutes and knowledgeable investors with a do-it-yourself mentality welcome the ease of executing trades.

Acting Like a Muscle, Nano-Sized Device Lifts 165 Times its Own Weight

Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have discovered a simple, economical way to make a nano-sized device that can match the friendly neighborhood Avenger, on a much smaller scale. Their creation weighs 1.6 milligrams (about as much as five poppy seeds) and can lift 265 milligrams (the weight of about 825 poppy seeds) hundreds of times in a row.

Japan Bebot, the World's Most Advanced AI Concierge

Multilingual correspondence through smartphones can be realized in real time at any time, 365 days, for foreigners' inquiries and requests to visit Japan. The service is in full use offering accommodation facilities like Holiday Inn and Grand Bell Hotel and car rental service "Times Car Rental".

Implementing Robots in Healthcare

The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.

Neurotechnology and the Future of Hope

If researchers can use implanted BCIs to allow people to bypass their muscles, indeed, if these scientists can find a cost-effective, reliable way to work around a damaged or compromised nervous system, people suffering paraplegia, amputation, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's, and a host of other diseases that rob them of their independence, may soon find that the frustrations of daily life are lessened.

Robot Delivery: New Tests in Japan

Japanese scientists and technology companies are coming up with new ways to deal with employee shortages in the sphere of delivery and courier service. How exactly? By introducing a robot that can deliver food to your home.

Robotic Hospitals

Healthcare providers say that the robots can help reduce costs, make operations more efficient and serve as a marketing tool to position hospitals as early adapters of futuristic technology.

Education in Robotic Surgery

The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center and Adventist University of Health Sciences are partnering with the STAN Institute in Nancy, France to launch the Basic Robotic Surgical Course. The multi-disciplinary, five-day course was designed to incorporate the safe acquisition of robotic surgical skills through the use of simulation & comprehensive robotic platform training.

Forms of Closed Loop Stepper Control

To achieve the highest performance, the stepper motor can be treated as a 2 phase brushless servo motor. Current to the motor will then be controlled as a function of the error signal just as with standard servo motors.

Soft Stretchy Sensors

When the sensor is integrated into a wearable device and placed across a joint, it is stretched when the joint moves. We can correlate the joint's movement and sensor's capacitance change in order to monitor motion.
