Robots are expected to change the face of logistics, food, and security industries. A company named 6

A High-Power Fuel Cell for Electric Drones and Submersibles

Public and private initiatives around the world are trying to meet energy demands in a more efficient manner. However, the transport industry presents a challenge to this tall goal. The transport industry is a large consumer of energy in the US. Additionally, transport means such as airplanes, railways, submarines, and ships find cannot use alternative energy sources. This is expected to change soon. Earlier, lack of high-power supply of electric

Google’s DeepMind Says Robots are Learning Adaptation

Robots will soon become capable of human-like decision making. At least that’s what researchers at DeepMind, a Google-backed AI program believe. In its press release, it argued that robots can now replicate strategies used by human brain. These strategies can soon allow robots to understand wellbeing and adapt according to situations. Currently, robots in a nascent stages of development as far as intelligent decision-making is concerned. Today’s robots can only make

A ‘State-of-the-Art’ Automatic Text Generator is Here

OpenAI, a research center supported by Microsoft, Elon Musk, and Amazon has created a ‘state-of-the-art’ automatic text generator. But, you are unlikely to see it in action, anytime soon. The researchers are afraid of its potential misuses. Hence, in a disappointing turn of events, the technology is likely to remain under wraps in the near future. However, OpenAI researchers have slipped out a few details of the advanced text generator.

Scientists Showcase Iron Man Alike Class of Mechanical Devices

Do you hope to see Iron Man inspired mechanical gadgets in action one day? A new study has helped scientists close the gap on the imaginary genius, Tony Stark. According to study published in Science Robotics, ‘developable mechanism’ similar to missiles that pop out of Iron Man’s arms can become a ground reality soon. This new research claims that these mechanisms can operate with complex 3-D shapes without wear and

Self-Driving Cars Gear Up to Predict Foot Traffic

Self-driving cars and AI technology are making headlines around the world. However, the technology is yet to fulfill its promise to millions at large. Soon, researchers from University of Michigan (UMich) could change that. UMich researchers are studying human body symmetry, gait, and foot movement. They are using GPS, onboard cameras in vehicles, LiDAR to gather data. The data is then fed into a 3-D computer stimulation program to recreate
