In interacting with humans, robots must first and foremost be safe. If a household robot, for example, encounters a human, it should not continue its movements regardless, but rather give way in case of doubt. Researchers at the Max Planck ...

To make robots more cooperative and have them perform tasks in close proximity to humans, they must be softer and safer. A new actuator developed by a team led by George Whitesides, Ph.D. — who is a Core Faculty member ...

A new artificial intelligence startup called Osaro aims to give industrial robots the same turbocharge that DeepMind Technologies gave Atari-playing computer programs. In December 2013, DeepMind showcased a type of artificial intelligence that had mastered seven Atari 2600 games from ...

Researchers have presented the first neurophysiological evidence of humans’ ability to empathize with a robot in perceived pain. Event-related brain potentials in human observers, reflecting empathy with humanoid robots in perceived pain, were similar to those for other humans in ...

All of the joints on this bot move in a variety of directions, giving it the flexibility to change shape. A. KAMAT, R. THAKKER, S. BHARAMBE / VISVESVARAYA NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY Japan-based HiBot developed the waterproof ACM robot, which ...
