B©r©nice Magistretti for VentureBeat: Picking apples may seem like a fun weekend activity, but it's actually backbreaking manual labor. Abundant Robotics wants to help agricultural growers shoulder this task and today announced funding of $10 million, led by GV, to commercialize its apple-picking robot.
While most companies are focused on how drones work in the sky, XWorks is setting its sights on how they work on the ground, using a landing pad they call the RDISt (Robotic Docking and Interchange Station).
Cognitive Automation (CA) , also known as Intelligent Automation, is a set of AI based technologies including Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. The core difference between CA and generic RPA is that CA works at a semantic level and tries to understand the underlying data rather than just treating it at a superficial level.

Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: Construction seems like an industry that, were I still living in Silicon Valley, I would be tempted to call "ripe for disruption." Researchers at the MIT Media Lab agree, pointing out in a paper just published in Science Robotics that construction "relies on traditional fabrication technologies that are dangerous, slow, and energy-intensive." Hey, sounds like a job for some robots, right?
RPA systems are used to automate basic and repetitive office tasks. A technology like this can have massive impact on the future of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO).
Coupled with the electrification of farming vehicle systems and rising seed costs, the farmer faces a unique challenge: accurately planting seed in order to optimize crop yield.
Brett Molina , USA TODAY: Jack Ma, the founder and chairman of Chinese e-commerce titan Alibaba, predicts "a robot will likely be on the cover of Time magazine as the best CEO" in 30 years, according to published reports.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a rapid IT project, driven by non - IT staff and faces higher risks, because it demands prerequisites and some key best practices to be followed.
Hoosier Ag Today: A new poll finds 21 percent of farmers plan to operate a drone this year. The poll found 21 percent of farmers will operate the drone themselves, while another 12 percent of farmers indicated they would opt for a third-party entity to fly drones.
Lora Kolodny for TechCrunch: Marble is one of a handful of ventures developing ground-based robots that can navigate autonomously to a customer's address. Their machines look like a large kitchen appliance crossed with a Mars rover.
