Robots in the work place can perform hazardous or even 'impossible' tasks; e.g., toxic waste clean-up, desert and space exploration, and more. AI researchers are also interested in the intelligent processing involved in moving about and manipulating objects in the real world.
Future robots could kill humans in a 'murderous' rage if humans don't take steps to stop them, a prominent futurist has claimed. Dr Michio Kaku believes we can put a stop to the killer robots by simply embedding chips in their brains to control their thoughts. Robots could be smart enough to 'beco...
Unpacking groceries is a straightforward albeit tedious task: You reach into a bag, feel around for an item, and pull it out. A quick glance will tell you what the item is and where it should be stored. Now engineers from MIT and Princeton University have developed a robotic system that may one day...
Though its time horizon can't be predicted, artificial intelligence (AI) promises to foundationally influence modern society, for better or worse. A sub-genre of AI -- machine learning -- has garnered particular attention from the pundits for its potential impact on the world's most important indust...
In a chilly basement room at Carnegie Mellon University sits a giant dome that looks like part physics experiment, part that chamber Darth Vader kicks back in. Wires and electronic boxes stud the walls, which curve nearly 14 feet in the air. But this space wasn't built for subatomic particles, and i...
