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."
The Halcyon Showcase was designed to be only the beginning of a national and global dialogue on the future of robotics policy. Several recommendations in the report are centered around the creation of groups of experts and advisory structures designed to continue the expansion of knowledge and policies pertaining to robotics and AI.
The combination of new applications for robotics for automotive, military and healthcare applications and lower cost sensor technology is causing significant growth in the sensors for robotics market, according to BCC Research's recent report on the topic.
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:
As if the DoD wasn't important enough on its own, their need for the latest and greatest in technology cannot be overstated - it might be critical to the future defense of our nation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
