Imagine the potential in dissolving the boundary between humans and automation. Creating this collaborative human-automation technology will allow automation to transcend its current role of being a tool and elevate it to the role of a teammate. Human Automation Teaming Solutions Inc., a technology start-up that received a $1 million contract from NASA, has been tapped to create this technology.

Going Where No Man Has Gone Before: What Does the Future Hold for Automation in the Service Industry?
Most service organisations are still at the stage of small scale trial RPA deployments summarised as "if x is true, then click button y". So how do we go on our voyage of discovery, and move from where we are now to a more automated enterprise?
MAC Formula Electric represents McMaster University at Formula Student. Their goal is to compete and place in the top 10 on the world stage. OCTOPUZ is proud to be an official sponsor and wish Jackson and his team continued success on their journey to race in Europe!
AI-powered robot ensures security and efficiency at busy immigration and customs terminal
DARPA seeks mathematical methods to enable a general-purpose design tool for optimizing human-machine teams in a diverse range of national security contexts
Bruce Brown for DigitalTrends: It sounds like we can all take a breath and forget about robot attacks occurring — at least anytime soon. Robots turning against their makers is a common theme in science fiction. However, there’s “no cause for concern that AI poses an imminent threat to humanity,” according to Fast Company, citing the first report from the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100). The Stanford University-hosted project represents a standing committee of AI scientists. The AI100 project is ongoing but will not issue reports annually — the next one will be published “in a few years.” The first report, Artificial Intelligence and Life in 2030, downloadable at this link, looks at how advances in AI will make a difference in the U.S. between now and 2030. Areas of change explored by the report include transportation, healthcare, education, the workplace, and policing and public safety. Cont'd...
David Clensy for Bristol Post: For Silas Adekunle, the fascination has always been about how the very best robotics learns from biology. There is a twinkle in the eye of the 25-year-old Reach Robotics founder, as he introduces me to Mekamon – the spider-like robot with which he plans to transform the future of augmented reality gaming among techies around the world. Silas only graduated from the University of the West of England in 2014, but is already employing 10 people in his rapidly growing tech company. Cont'd...
Unlike other solutions, AImotive's full stack software uses the power of artificial intelligence to "see" fine detail and predict behavior, making it easier to manage common driving concerns such as poor visibility and adverse conditions.
While self-driving cars get most of the credit for capturing the public's imagination, autonomous or nearly autonomous tractor-trailers are starting to move goods across the world's highways.
Rising Media Announces 3D Printing, VR/AR, and Robotics Startups Selected to Compete in the Frontier Tech Showdown December 14 in San Diego, California
Rising Media, Inc. and Asimov Ventures have revealed the eight startups selected to compete in the Frontier Tech Showdown, coming to the San Diego Convention Center on December 14, 2016 during the Frontier Tech Forum.
Leading automotive perception technology conference, AutoSens, doubles up in 2017 due to widespread demand
For those who missed the opportunity to attend in 2016, organisers Sense Media have released two dates and locations for these "best in class" conferences next year. Both venues provide the perfect backdrop for the continuation of technical discussion concerning the future of vehicle perception technology.
From AZoRobotics: As a result of a new machine learning algorithm formulated by engineering researchers Parham Aarabi (ECE) and Wenzhi Guo (ECE MASc 1T5) at University of Toronto, smartphones may soon be able to provide users with honest answers. The researchers prepared an algorithm that was capable of learning directly from human instructions, instead of an existing set of examples, and surpassed conventional techniques of training neural networks by 160%. But more astonishingly, their algorithm also surpassed its own training by 9% - it learned to identify hair in pictures with better reliability than that enabled by the training, signifying a major leap forward for artificial intelligence.
