Kyle Mizokami for Popular Mechanics: A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage.
Joshua Brustein for Bloomberg: Teams competing in Amazon's third-annual contest tackle a problem that has kept companies from automating warehouses entirely.
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.
We believe three components are critical for turning self-driving cars into a mass product: power-efficient hardware, optimized algorithms and a solid regulatory environment. While none of these components are fully ready at this stage, competition and advances in technology are speeding the process for the first two.
RPA does have impactful potential for SMB companies but the analysis and application needs to a lot more granular and explicit about avenues of costs savings beyond head-count reductions.
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.
Recent research by companies like Waymo are paving the way for others and their own work, and it won't be long before self-driving trucks are on the road once and for all.
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.
