A child holds his ears during a demonstration flight by a U.S. F-22 Raptor stealth aircraft at the Seoul International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition (ADEX) at Seoul Airport in Seongnam, South Korea. The event runs from Oct. 17 - 22, 2017, bringing together foreign and domestic aerospace and defense companies.
The new iPads could completely get rid of the iconic home button on their bottom, according to a new leak. The tablets will as a result be able to get rid of the bezel that goes around the side of the phone and make its front almost entirely screen, according to the report. The redesign will mean that the bigger iPad Pro will be able to keep the same screen size but only take up the same amount of space as the 9.7-inch models, according to the same report. It has long been rumoured that Apple is looking to get rid of the home button, but it was expected that would come with the next version of the iPhone. That handset, which will make the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, is expected to be made entirely of glass and have no buttons on its front.
A new exhibition at Science Gallery Dublin is exploring what an automated world might look like. There's a lot of discussion around the future of work, particularly when it comes to AI and robotics becoming more integrated into the workplace. Many experts are confident that advances in AI will, contrary to popular belief, actually create more jobs than it will get rid of. Those experts have also quelled our fears about certain elements of human behaviour being usurped by intelligent, human-like bots. Sure, they can analyse data at the drop of a hat and a lot of monotonous administration can be automated, but robots don't have the level of creativity or emotional intelligence that humans have, right?
This event is cast as a competition to motivate participation in the spirit of trying to develop as animate, responsive, and intelligent robot behavior as possible The comoetition involves "housebreaking" followed by two stages involving spatial search and object detection/classification Object classification is possible using three kinds of sensors Parts of the scoring use an olympic-style judging The over-arching guidelines are a variant of Asiniov's laws of:obotics Humans are allowed to meander among the robots in the first stage, but the -obots will be competing individually, not simultaneously, with other robots In order:o reduce the possibility of radio or sensor nterference, the competition will be conducted in three partitioned activity areas In general, there will be three stages of:he competition: 1) a qualifying stage where the robots are expected to "roam" or wander around an area while not damaging people or stationary objects or themselves; 2) a stage where the robots ...
