Google to build a futuristic neighborhood in Toronto

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.

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.

How many robots does it take to change a light bulb?

Tim Sandle for Digital Journal: A newly created robotic gripper has researchers at University of California - San Diego excited. The 'friendly' new robot could help advance the automation of construction and building works.

Zume Pizza lands $48 million in funding for robotic pizza delivery

Sony will relaunch its robotics business in 2018 with a dog-like robot designed for homes.

Amit Katwala for IMECHE: The new model will incorporate internet connectivity and have the ability to control domestic appliances with voice commands, like the Amazon Echo or Google Home devices, but will also behave and move like a real dog.

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.

The future of robots could be tiny origami bots that fold into different shapes

Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.

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.

Has a French firm finally achieved the holy grail of robotics?

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.

How Switzerland Became The Silicon Valley Of Robotics

Andrew Cave for Forbes: The Alpine nation is now "the Silicon Valley of robotics," according to Chris Anderson, chief executive of 3D Robotics.

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.
