Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic: By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support.
The importance of robotics for Europe's regions will be the focus of a week-long celebration of robotics taking place around Europe on 17-27 November 2017
Nick Statt for The Verge: Kindred's new production model robots, now called Kindred Sort, have been operating in a pilot program at a Gap warehouse, with plans to expand the fleet of robots to help the retailer's full fulfillment network down the line.
Ben Wolff, CEO of Sarcos via IEEE Spectrum:
Matt Simon for Wired: The United States has a serious problem with getting women into STEM jobs and keeping them there.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The reason is that programming a robot is no easy task, which presents challenges when it comes to deployment. That's particularly true of small- and mid-sized businesses, which are unlikely to have a qualified roboticist onboard.
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.
In 2017 robot installations are estimated to increase by 21 percent in the Asia-Australia region. Robot supplies in the Americas will surge by 16 percent and in Europe by 8 percent.
Will Knight MIT Technology Review: Humatics, an MIT spinout, is developing an indoor radar system that should give robots and other industrial systems the ability to track people's movements very precisely.
Reuters: The Siemens research center at Beijing's Tsinghua University would focus on combined mechanics and electronics, human-robot collaboration and the application of artificial intelligence in robotic controllers, the German firm said.
Ian Wright for Engineering.com: The inaugural Robotiq User Conference (RUC) will demonstrate what 80 engineers can do with 40 robots in 24 hours.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Acutronic was set up in 2016, and offers a way to allow components combine in new robotics systems easily with ready-made compliance with industry and commercial standards for easy deployment.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Michael Pooler for FT.com: An industrial dance takes place every day and night on the floor of Amazon's huge warehouse in Manchester.
