One of the greatest fears in the technology industry is the fear that someday almost all of our jobs will be replace by robots. That fear is sometimes laughed off as something that will happen in the far future. But, the truth is that it is actually happening now.
The world is on the brink of a new industrial revolution in which advances in the field of artificial intelligence will obsolete human labor, according to many economists and technologists today. Two Oxford researchers recently analyzed the skills required for more than 700 different occupations to determine how many of them would be susceptible to automation in […]
Boston Dynamics, a Google-owned company, scared everyone earlier this year with its hive-mind 160-pound robot dogs that can run on almost any terrain. Now the company is taking things to an all-new level with new video of its humanoid robot, which is the closest thing to a real-life Terminator we’ve ever seen.
Ronald C. Arkin: I’ve been engaged in the debate over autonomous robotic military systems for almost 10 years. I am not averse to a ban, but I’m convinced we should continue researching this technology for the time being. One reason is that I believe such systems might be capable of reducing civilian casualties and property […]
One of the primary characteristics that artificially intelligent objects possess is self-awareness. Taking a step forward toward the new technology, a team of researchers claim to have found one such robot that showed a capability to differentiate itself from the others.
Exoskeletons are gaining a foothold in the real world. Panasonic recently announced that it will start selling an exoskeleton designed to help workers lift and carry objects more easily and with less risk of injury.
Last week the comprehensive local regulations for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or as more commonly referred to, drones, went into effect. Drone technology has far-reaching benefits for many industries despite that most of the media coverage has focused on what regulated drone usage will do for “dramatic shots” in film.
Almost as old as human civilization itself, building houses of brick has been perfected over the millennia. Placing over 700 bricks an hour, the fastest human bricklayers are pretty fast.
Two robots, Frois and Yukirin, married this past weekend in Tokyo, even sealing their union with a kiss.
