Drones Dodge Obstacles

Drones Dodge Obstacles

Motion-planning algorithms allow drones to do donuts, figure-eights in object-filled environments. MIT NEWS | 19 January 2016  Getting drones to fly around without hitting things is no small task. Obstacle-detection and motion-planning are two of computer science’s trickiest challenges, because of the complexity involved in creating real-time flight plans that avoid obstacles and handle surprises like wind […]

An Intelligent Device could Help a Robot to Distinguish Voices at Cocktail Party

13 August 2015, Duke University – Human brains are able to focus in on one conversation in the hubub of a cocktail party by discarding the background noise. But what about robots? Researchers from Duke University demonstrated a intelligent device that can distinguish speakers in crowd. It is called the ‘cocktail party problem’. Typical approaches to solving it […]

BrainHub: CMU Engineers Receive NSF Grant to Study Neuron Variability and Motor Learning

13 August 2015, CMU – When we move, we rarely move in the exact same way twice. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Carnegie Mellon University Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering Steven Chase and Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Byron Yu, and their long-time collaborator, University of Pittsburgh Associate […]

A Mother Robot that can Design, Build and Test its own ‘Children’

A Mother Robot that can Design, Build and Test its own ‘Children’

12 August 2015, University of Cambridge  – Researchers have observed the process of evolution by natural selection at work in robots, by constructing a ‘mother’ robot that can design, build and test its own ‘children’, and then use the results to improve the performance of the next generation, without relying on computer simulation or human […]

Autonomous Weapons: Leading AI & Robotics Researchers signed an Open Letter to Ban it

The key question for humanity today is whether to start a global AI arms race or to prevent it from starting? More than 1,500 leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics researchers signed an open letter, published Monday, at the opening of the IJCAI 2015 conference from the Future of Life Institute. The letter calls for […]

Rise of Social Robots

Rise of Social Robots

When most people thinks about the robots they either think of hulking terminators or Transformers. Later the movies pottered robots became more cuter like WALL-E. Lets see where does we stand today, we haven’t seen furious robot such as terminators but recently in past five year we have seen social robots which are cute like […]
