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 […]

Stanford Students Design, ‘Teach’ Robots to play Pingpong and Japanese Kendama

Stanford Students Design, ‘Teach’ Robots to play Pingpong and Japanese Kendama

Out of whole Graduate syllabus, ‘Experimental Robotics’ is an almost 3 month spring course led by Professor Oussama Khatib, Computer Science Department Director, Robotics Lab. The goal of this class is to introduce the intricate art of programming articulated robots and it covers control theory and projects assignments. Most projects involve some aspect of robot […]

Evolution of Self Driving Autonomous Car

Evolution of Self Driving Autonomous Car

Autonomous robotics have gone through a lot of evolution in the last few decades. One of the technology that has be most talked and invested on is self driving Autonomous Car. The research in autonomous field started in early 60s and first self-sufficient and truly autonomous cars appeared in the 1980s with Carnegie Mellon University. But the real kick start […]
