The humanoid robot, Sophia, told the audience at the Future Investment Initiative summit how honoured she was being made a Saudi citizen. „Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," Sophia said, „I am very honoured and proud of this unique distinction."
James Vincent for The Verge: The retailing giant says the robots' introduction won't lead to job losses, and that the company wants to save employees from carrying out tasks that are "repeatable, predictable, and manual."
Ben Wolff, CEO of Sarcos via IEEE Spectrum:
As if the DoD wasn't important enough on its own, their need for the latest and greatest in technology cannot be overstated - it might be critical to the future defense of our nation.
With its extensible architecture and APIs, the Humatics Spatial Intelligence Platform™ will power an ecosystem of new position-based products and services.
Matt Simon for Wired: The United States has a serious problem with getting women into STEM jobs and keeping them there.
Tend in.view™ (which stands for "intelligent view") software is a cloud-based robot performance management solution. It lets users remotely monitor and analyze the performance of their production robots in real time, from any location, via their mobile device.
INTELLOS is an autonomous, outdoor security robot that utilizes a navigation surveillance platform developed by Sharp to patrol predefined routes.
Matt Simon for Wired: Give it coordinates, tell it what size the hole should be, hit enter, and it tears off and digs the thing with impressive accuracy.
Matt McFarland for CNN Money: Google, a company that's built everything from a search engine to a self-driving car, will now try its hand at a city neighborhood.
A general in depth analysis shows that the highest encoder resolutions are required for very precise speed control. The encoder resolution increases with the square of the demanded speed accuracy.
Warehouses should be thinking about safety, simplicity and software.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The reason is that programming a robot is no easy task, which presents challenges when it comes to deployment. That's particularly true of small- and mid-sized businesses, which are unlikely to have a qualified roboticist onboard.
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.
