Draft bill gives the government power to control your drone

Engadget

Remotely piloted aircraft can also be a force for good, like in Africa where drones are being used to stop poaching. New draft legislation from the Trump administration would authorize the government to track, take control of, and destroy drones that the government thinks pose a threat to specially designated areas. The draft bill is part of the National Defense Authorization Act and contains some sweeping language around what the government could do in these specially designated areas. It also includes language allowing officials to "redirect, disable, disrupt control of, exercise control of, seize, or confiscate" the aircraft as well as any cargo attached.

Parasitic robot system for waypoint navigation of turtle

#artificialintelligence

The robot is attached to its host animal in a way similar to an actual parasite, and it interacts with the host through particular devices and algorithms. The parasitic robot, which is attached to the turtle, can induce the turtle's object-tracking behavior through repeated training sessions. This hybrid animal-robot interaction system could provide an alternative solution of the limitations of conventional mobile robot systems in various fields. Kim said, "This hybrid animal-robot interaction system could provide an alternative solution to the limitations of conventional mobile robot systems in various fields, and could also act as a useful interaction system for the behavioral sciences."
