This company tames killer robots

MIT Technology Review

A seven-foot-tall robot arm moves in a blur, carrying a piece of metal about the size of a bowling ball from one workbench to another at superhuman speed. But when a human worker reaches for the piece, the robot goes into slow motion and then eventually stops. The machine and the young man are assembling a car suspension together. To anyone familiar with industrial robots, this seems insane. Industrial robots are capable of killing a person.


Machinations Of Efficiency: Robots And AI On The Factory Floor

#artificialintelligence

While the robots and autonomous applications in factories aren't as outwardly thrilling as science fiction's sentient androids, they are highly effective at reducing human costs by taking over mundane, physically taxing or dangerous tasks; streamlining business operations; improving efficiency and ensuring extreme precision. A report from the International Federation of Robotics, the automation of manufacturing and production is accelerating around the world, with 74 robot units per 10,000 employees as the new average of global robot density in the manufacturing industries. This is up from 66 robot units in 2015 -- showing that use of machines is on a steady rise. As machines ascend, they will create three key efficiencies for manufacturers -- but there are connectivity challenges to overcome first. Robots and artificial intelligence (AI) will create a number of efficiencies for manufacturers.

How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Medical Devices

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have long been heralded as the future of transformative technologies. From diagnostic and imaging technologies to therapeutic applications and robotics, the potential for machine learning and AI technologies reaches almost every corner of the medtech world. So, what does that mean for the development and application of next-gen medical devices? Dave Saunders is the chief technology officer of Galen Robotics, an emerging surgical robotics company that specializes in a new line of robotic technologies that provide a cooperatively controlled surgical platform. The company aims to provide robot-assisted technologies that can extend increased precision and unprecedented tool stabilization to microsurgery procedures.


The Complete Beginners' Guide to Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Ten years ago, if you mentioned the term "artificial intelligence" in a boardroom there's a good chance you would have been laughed at. For most people it would bring to mind sentient, sci-fi machines such as 2001: A Space Odyssey's HAL or Star Trek's Data. Today it is one of the hottest buzzwords in business and industry. AI technology is a crucial lynchpin of much of the digital transformation taking place today as organizations position themselves to capitalize on the ever-growing amount of data being generated and collected. So how has this change come about?


Cloud Computing and Robotics: The Interesting Emerging Field of Cloud Robotics - TFOT

#artificialintelligence

Cloud Robotics is a term that was popularized by James Kuffner after he brought together researchers from different relevant fields (robotics, machine learning, and computer vision) to assist in coming up with the initial Cloud Robotics concept. Cloud robotics, as the name suggests is bringing together cloud computing and robotics. In essence, taking all the benefits of cloud computing and finding ways to apply them to robot software and robotics. The past couple of years have established cloud computing as the technology of now and the future. In 2017, spending on cloud services was $153.5bn, and this is expected to rise by 21.1% in 2018 to $184.4bn.


What's all the fuss about AI, robotics and China?

Robohub

In the constantly changing landscape of today's global digital workspace, AI's presence grows in almost every industry. Retail giants like Amazon and Alibaba are using algorithms written by machine learning software to add value to the customer experience. Machine learning is also prevalent in the new Service Robotics world as robots transition from blind, dumb and caged to mobile and perceptive. Competition is particularly focused between the US and China even though other countries and global corporations have large AI programs as well. The competition is real, fierce and dramatic.


Get ready for the Internet of Battle Things, warns US Army AI boffin

#artificialintelligence

As US Army researcher believes that wars will be fought with human soldiers commanding a team of'physical and cyber robots' to create a network of "Internet of Battle Things" in the future. "Internet of Intelligent Battle Things (IOBT) is the emerging reality of warfare," as AI and machine learning advances Alexander Kott, chief of the Network Science Division of the US Army Research Laboratory. He envisions a future where physical robots are able to fly, crawl, walk, or ride into battle. The robots as small as insects can be used as sensors, and the ones as big as large vehicles can carry troops and supplies. There will also be "cyber robots", basically autonomous programmes, used within computers and networks to protect communications, fact-check, relay information, and protect other electronic devices from enemy malware.

NVIDIA And Artificial Intelligence: How NVDA Is Leading The Way

#artificialintelligence

The era of artificial intelligence (AI) is officially here. The AI market is expected to grow from $21.46 billion in 2018 to $190.61 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 36.62% between 2018 and 2025, according to a recent report. AI's phenomenal growth across different industries is being fueled by unprecedented computing power, ever-increasing amounts of data--billions of gigabytes every day--and sophisticated deep-learning algorithms. According to the AI Index report, the number of active U.S. startups developing AI systems has increased 14 times whereas the annual VC investment into such startups has increased only 6 times since 2000. Moreover, the share of jobs requiring AI skills in the U.S. has grown 4.5 times since 2013.
