Mashable

Robot vacuums are the hot item this season and though they could obviously make your life 100 times easier, there's a hard part to the process: picking the right one. With so many brands, features, and app capabilities out there, deciding which vacuum you're going to drop a hefty load of cash on can be overwhelming. We hate cleaning just as much as you do and have laid out a simple, comprehensive list of all your best options, sorted by price. And, if nothing else, you should just get one to do this.


LG's new airport robots will guide you to your gate and clean up your trash

In preparation for next year's Winter Olympics in South Korea, electronics giant LG is trialling new robots in the country's largest airport. From today, Seoul's Incheon International Airport will be home to two of LG's latest prototype bots: the Airport Guide Robot and the Airport Cleaning Robot. The bots were first unveiled at CES earlier this year, and both do exactly what their names suggest. The Guide Robot will roam the terminals, ready to provide travelers with directions and information about boarding times. It speaks four languages -- Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese -- and users can even get it to scan their boarding pass to be escorted to their correct departure gate.

The definitive guide to whether or not a robot will take your job

#artificialintelligence

In the midst of an international freakout about what is to become of us as robots learn to do for free the things humans do to make a living, it's easy to feel lost in the flurry of papers and panels and general pontification on how terrified we ought to feel about it. We at Wonkblog have created a repository of evidence on all sides of the debate, and will maintain it as a public service as long as automation anxiety continues to be a thing. To that end, please send worthy contributions to lydia.depillis@washpost.com. Robots are taking our jobs, and the future looks grim! Robots are taking our jobs, but everything might be fine!
