Artificial intelligence ‘should be used to give children one-on-one tutoring’

Posted by in categories: education, robotics/AI

I fully support this only when the net and infrastructure is secured from hackers.


Artificial intelligence should be used to provide children with one-to-one tutoring to improve their learning and monitor their well-being, academics have argued.

One-to-one tutoring has long been thought the most-effective approach to teaching but would be too expensive to provide for all students.

Report Cites Dangers of Autonomous Weapons

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, military, policy, robotics/AI

I agree 100% with this report by former pentagon official on AI systems involving missiles.


A new report written by a former Pentagon official who helped establish United States policy on autonomous weapons argues that such weapons could be uncontrollable in real-world environments where they are subject to design failure as well as hacking, spoofing and manipulation by adversaries.

In recent years, low-cost sensors and new artificial intelligence technologies have made it increasingly practical to design weapons systems that make killing decisions without human intervention. The specter of so-called killer robots has touched off an international protest movement and a debate within the United Nations about limiting the development and deployment of such systems.

New Hyproline System Capable of High-Speed Mass Customization of Metal 3D Printed Parts

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, robotics/AI

At the end of last year, Davide Sher predicted that 2016 would see metal 3D printing move from a technology capable of producing small batches to a fully-automated method for serial manufacturing. Davide cited a number of machines in development that herald the age of serial metal 3D printing, but he may have left one system out: the Hyproline platform.

Carrie Fisher conducts painful group therapy for robots

Posted by in categories: government, robotics/AI

As funny as this commercial is; if the ramp up of robotics continue for the next 30 years we could see humanoid robots needing counseling. However, like AI of our past, we’ll go through a 10 yr peiod of hype and interests, and when consumers, industries, and government do not see value or advance improvements beyond walking, lifting 20lbs boxes, being part of an assembly, etc. robotics will again fall again into the background. https://lnkd.in/bQyWgBq


Technically Incorrect: A new IBM ad, released to coincide with Sunday’s Oscars broadcast, shows Fisher entirely in her element, and robots who have a lot of problems.

A practical solution to mass-producing low-cost nanoparticles

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, chemistry, health, robotics/AI

Nanoparticles form in a 3-D-printed microfluidic channel. Each droplet shown here is about 250 micrometers in diameter, and contains billions of platinum nanoparticles. (credit: Richard Brutchey and Noah Malmstadt/USC)

USC researchers have created an automated method of manufacturing nanoparticles that may transform the process from an expensive, painstaking, batch-by-batch process by a technician in a chemistry lab, mixing up a batch of chemicals by hand in traditional lab flasks and beakers.

Russian Robonauts Working on the ISS Will Soon be Reality (Video)

Posted by in categories: government, military, robotics/AI, space

Rather than risk the lives of their astronauts, Russian government scientists are now working to develop humanoid robots that can perform complex tasks on the outside of the International Space Station (ISS) while astronauts control them safely from within the station.

The Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects, Russia’s military research arm unveiled two prototype robot astronauts on February 13th to the media ahead of a public robotics exhibition in Moscow.
