Robotic Motion Planning in Real-Time

Jun 20, 2016 @ 18:42 |  Duke University engineers and computer scientists develop a new computer processor specially designed for robotic motion planning Once they’ve mastered the skills of toddlerhood, humans are pretty good at what roboticists call “motion planning”—reaching around obstacles to precisely pick up a soda in a crowded fridge, or slipping their […]

With Quipt Software, Robots can be Programmed without Coding Knowledge

With Quipt Software, Robots can be Programmed without Coding Knowledge

Mar 2, 2016 @ 17:20 Madeline Gannon, a Ph.D. candidate in Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Architecture, has invented new method to interact and program the robot. Gannon designed an open-source software, Quipt that turns a human’s motions into instructions for a robot. With Quipt, now programming of robots is not just for those with years […]

Researchers are Using Stories to Teach Human Values to Robots

Researchers are Using Stories to Teach Human Values to Robots

Feb 17, 2016 @ 17:22 | The rapid pace of artificial intelligence (AI) has raised fears about whether robots could act unethically or soon choose to harm humans. Some are calling for bans on robotics research; others are calling for more research to understand how AI might be constrained. But how can robots learn ethical […]
