Osteopathic Emergency Physician Launches New Medical Disaster Drone for Audience of Homeland Security, Global Health Organizations
Technology demonstration showcases life-saving capabilities of medical disaster drones in a simulated active shooter scenario; gives emergency physicians rapid response capabilities--eyes, ears, and voice to remotely treat victims of disaster and terrorism
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) engineer Amy Kukulya teamed up with marine biologist and WHOI guest investigator Kara Dodge to use an underwater robot called TurtleCam to track and film leatherback sea turtles in their natural environment. The researchers tagged their first turtle in Massachusetts's Vineyard Sound in September 2016 and captured remarkable footage - from cameras on TurtleCam and on the turtle tag - that allows the researchers to record how much a turtle eats as well as how often it breathes.
Alan Boyle for Geekwire: The Boeing Co. says it has agreed to acquire Liquid Robotics, its teammate in a years-long effort to create surfboard-sized robots that can use wave power to roam the seas. The acquisition is expected to help Boeing create military communication networks that can transmit information autonomously from the sea to satellites via Sensor Hosting Autonomous Remote Craft, or SHARCs. Liquid Robotics was founded in 2007 and currently has about 100 employees in California and Hawaii. Once the deal is completed, the company will become a subsidiary of Boeing. The arrangement is similar to the one that applies to Insitu, a Boeing subsidiary that is headquartered in Bingen, Wash., and manufactures ScanEagle military-grade drones. Cont'd...
"These technologies are helping meet farm labor needs and making farming safer, more efficient, and more profitable," said NIFA Director Sonny Ramaswamy. "With each year of investment in agricultural robotic research we learn more about how humans can benefit from automation in the field."
The goal of ARIBO is to provide automated, on-demand transportation to wounded warriors traveling between the Warrior Transition Battalion barracks and the Womack Army Medical Center.
Consortium For Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS) envisions consensus-based technical standards that would encourage responsible on-orbit commercial servicing operations
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...
