Autonomous system uses quadcopters to help wheeled robots climb steep cliffs

#artificialintelligence

Sheer cliff faces present a traversal challenge for most wheeled robots on the market, but researchers at the University of Tokyo say they've developed a two-robot framework that works pretty reliably in their testing. In a newly published paper on the preprint server Arxiv.org "[We] propose a novel cooperative system for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) which utilizes the UAV not only as a flying sensor but also as a tether attachment device," the authors of the paper explain. "[It enhances] the poor traversability of the UGV by not only providing a wider range of scanning and mapping from the air, but also by allowing the UGV to climb steep terrains with the winding of the tether." The UGV is permanently attached via mechanized winch and cable to the UAV, a custom-made quadcopter with an Nvidia Jetson TX2 chipset, a flight controller, and a raft of sensors including a modular fisheye camera, time-of-flight sensor, inertial measurement unit (IMU), and laser sensor.


China's Xinhua presents news using robot anchor - Times of India

#artificialintelligence

SINGAPORE: China's Xinhua state news agency on Sunday used a lifelike robotic news anchor that mimics human facial expressions and mannerisms to present a story about delegates attending an annual parliament meeting arriving in Beijing. The artificial intelligence robot named "Xin Xiaomeng" sported a short haircut and wore a pink blouse and earrings in a one-minute video presentation by Xinhua. Xinhua displayed two AI news anchors dressed in men's clothes last November at the World Internet Conference in the eastern Chinese town of Wuzhen. China is pushing to advance its prowess in AI technology, from surveillance equipment to self-driving cars.


AI Can Help More Than Just Humans…Like Rhinos – Laiba Khan – Medium

Remember the one kid who would announce they didn't like dogs, and the whole class would gasp in shock as if their life purpose was being attacked? Well, most of us have been gasped at or done the gasping, either way, it's safe to say animals have become a huge part of our daily lives and treated like a family member…a very spoiled family member. Or at least the pets we are used to seeing in our neighborhoods. By other animals, I mean the 10 000 that are killed illegally each year for their fur, horns or for plain fun. Just a couple of weeks ago a white rhinoceros was found dead, leaving only six of their species left.

Face Verification checks "is this the claimed person?". For example, in school, you go with your ID card and the invigilator verifies your face with the ID card. A mobile phone that unlocks using our face is also using face verification. It is 1:1 matching problem. Now suppose the invigilator knows everyone by their name.
