Heather Knight for IEESpectrum: The Beam remote presence system, from Suitable Technologies, allows you to "beam in" and visit family members from anywhere. Social roboticist Heather Knight argues that such technology could become a valuable co-parenting tool.
Evelyn Cheng for CNBC: Artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics are making some real money for stock investors, and beating the market.
Alex Rosenberg for CNBC: "A theme that I have been coming back to is that the big worry that's on people's minds - I don't know how active it is in trading - but it's about where the world is going with automation and robotics,"
BBC: Cartman - a budget-priced robot from Australia - has triumphed in an annual contest to create a machine that can identify, pick up and stow warehouse goods.
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.
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.
Action, gesture, motion, and robots can be kept under control through a wearable, small but powerful electronic board.
Simon Parkin for MIT Technology Review: Drone delivery won't happen until the unmanned vehicle can master the emergency landing.
Geoffrey Mohan for LA Times: Now, the $47-billion agriculture industry is trying to bring technological innovation up to warp speed before it runs out of low-wage immigrant workers.
Steve LeVine for AXIOS: Musk, along with Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking, has been one of the leading voices warning of a dystopian, machine-led future if humans are not careful.
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.
Catherine Clifford for CNBC: "There certainly will be job disruption. Because what's going to happen is robots will be able to do everything better than us. ... I mean all of us,"
Why is it so difficult to make walking more efficient in humans? There are a few challenges. People are highly complex, in the dynamics of our movements, in our hundreds of muscles and tendons, and in our wildly complex nervous systems.
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.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
