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
Tim Johnson for McClatchy DC: "It's very reasonable to believe that by the end of next year, we'd have a couple of hundred of these out."
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.
The humanoid robot, Sophia, told the audience at the Future Investment Initiative summit how honoured she was being made a Saudi citizen. „Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," Sophia said, „I am very honoured and proud of this unique distinction."
James Vincent for The Verge: The retailing giant says the robots' introduction won't lead to job losses, and that the company wants to save employees from carrying out tasks that are "repeatable, predictable, and manual."
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.
Matt Simon for Wired: Give it coordinates, tell it what size the hole should be, hit enter, and it tears off and digs the thing with impressive accuracy.
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.
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.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The process begins on a robotic assembly line in a centralized kitchen, but pizzas finish cooking in ovens inside of trucks en route to delivery.
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.
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.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but it's not clear how many students parlay their new skills into jobs.

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
