The impact of AI and robotics on employment goes far deeper than just job creation. AI, and subsequently, robotics, are niche technologies that demand an extensive understanding of every associated parameter.
More Than 69,000 Students Worldwide to Explore Teamwork and Advanced Technology with FIRST® Tech Challenge ROVER RUCKUS Presented by Qualcomm
7,000 Teams of Students Tackle New Space-Themed Robotics Challenge During 2018-19 Season
With the help of telepresence robots, teachers can teach a lesson from anywhere. The robots are in classrooms. Their cameras and sensors are the eyes and ears of the teacher.
Offline Robot Programming is a technology that is quickly being implemented in manufacturing facilities all over the globe. This implementation results in an increase in efficiency, time and cost savings, and results in less down time.
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.
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.
PACK EXPO was held from September 25th - 27th in Las Vegas. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
WPI.edu: The program's stature as a successful academic pioneer in the robotics field has grown worldwide
Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science: Burka hopes to build up a database of one thousand surfaces to help coach robots on how to identify objects and also to know what they're made of and how best to handle them.
The company's new "Education Bundles" introduce educators to the most innovative robotics platform on the market today.
Phys.org: A new interactive design tool developed by CMU's Robotics Institute enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.
It's called the CoRIS Institute, short for Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems. Institute director Kagan Tumer said the new center would conduct research in robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as machine learning, vision, sensors, devices, and new materials. The institute also will explore public policy and ethical questions surrounding the deployment of robots and intelligent systems.
RAMTEC Career center in Ohio is home to the largest, most comprehensive robotics education center in the U.S.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
