Custom Robots In A Matter Of Minutes

Custom Robots In A Matter Of Minutes

By Adam Conner-Simons | Rachel Gordon |  Aug 23, 2017 @ 17:46 | CSAIL / MIT News | CSAIL’s “Interactive Robogami” lets you design and 3-D print origami-inspired custom robots from 2-D designs. Even as robots become increasingly common, they remain incredibly difficult to make. From designing and modeling to fabricating and testing, the process is […]

Helping Robots Correct Errors on-the-Fly and Learn From Each Other

Aug 21, 2017 @ 18:30 | New stochastic separation theorems proved by University of Leicester mathematicians could enhance capabilities of artificial intelligence. Errors in Artificial Intelligence which would normally take a considerable amount of time to resolve could be corrected immediately with the help of new research from the University of Leicester. Researchers from the University […]
