According to Professor Ikegami in Tokyo Japan, this self-evolving robot is the precursor of a new robotic life form. The android contains sensors and artificial intelligence software and, although rudimentary today, the technology allows it to perceive the outside world and react to it as it sees fit.
Today marks official launch of the second UK Robotics Week; entries now open in Surgical Robot, Autonomous Driving and School Robot Challenges
Imagine one day walking into a gorgeous structure—like LA's famous Walt Disney Concert Hall—only to discover it was designed by a computer system and constructed by automated robotic arms. Ai Build, a London-based startup, aims to pave the way to 3D printing on large scales. The company is equipping industrial-grade Kuka robotic arms with artificial intelligence and "3D printing guns" to 3D print large structures that focus on maximizing efficiency with labor and materials. Founder and CEO Daghan Cam […] Continue Reading…
Engineers at Bielefeld University in Germany have developed “Flobi”, a blusing, cartoonish, robotic head, about the size of a human’s, designed to express emotions and be more cute than creepy, in an attempt to overcome the so-called “Uncanny Valley”, when robots because of design limitations, often are too “realistic” and can resemble scary zombies.
Flobi is notable in that it has a magnetic mouth actuator system as well as a modular construction that allows its plastic face and hair features […] Continue Reading…
