Real-life Transformer: Robot becomes a car

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Circa 2018


Inspired by the children’s TV show Transformers, engineers have developed a robot that becomes a car.

Japanese firm Brave Robotics and amusement park ride manufacturer Sansei Technologies worked together on the development.

How You Will Live to 200 Years — New Longevity Technologies

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, holograms, life extension, robotics/AI, singularity

I hope we get the hologram interfaces depicted too.


It’s becoming clear that aging is just as curable as other diseases such as the cold or a broken bone. Advancements in biotechnology now allow for targeted gene therapy and supplements to be invented that can both stop aging and even reverse the aging process through new Longevity Technology. The field of Longevity has expanded and evolved a lot during the past few years and have invented new treatments for diseases of old people which could increase the average lifespan of people by a ton according to the leading scientists such as David Sinclair and Aubrey De Grey. Anti Aging Supplements such as Metformin and NAD+, NMN are just the start.

Every day is a day closer to the Technological Singularity. Experience Robots learning to walk & think, humans flying to Mars and us finally merging with technology itself. And as all of that happens, we at AI News cover the absolute cutting edge best technology inventions of Humanity.

A framework to enhance deep learning using first-spike times

Posted by in categories: biological, robotics/AI

Researchers at Heidelberg University and University of Bern have recently devised a technique to achieve fast and energy-efficient computing using spiking neuromorphic substrates. This strategy, introduced in a paper published in Nature Machine Intelligence, is a rigorous adaptation of a time-to-first-spike (TTFS) coding scheme, together with a corresponding learning rule implemented on certain networks of artificial neurons. TTFS is a time-coding approach, in which the activity of neurons is inversely proportional to their firing delay.

“A few years ago, I started my Master’s thesis in the Electronic Vision(s) group in Heidelberg,” Julian Goeltz, one of the leading researchers working on the study, told TechXplore. “The neuromorphic BrainScaleS system developed there promised to be an intriguing substrate for brain-like computation, given how its neuron and synapse circuits mimic the dynamics of neurons and synapses in the brain.”

When Goeltz started studying in Heidelberg, deep-learning models for spiking networks were still relatively unexplored and existing approaches did not use spike-based communication between neurons very effectively. In 2,017 Hesham Mostafa, a researcher at University of California—San Diego, introduced the idea that the timing of individual neuronal spikes could be used for information processing. However, the neuronal dynamics he outlined in his paper were still quite different from biological ones and thus were not applicable to brain-inspired neuromorphic hardware.

Neural Magic, which offers software for growing edge AI market, gets $30M boost

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Let the OSS Enterprise newsletter guide your open source journey! Sign up here.

Neural Magic, which provides software to facilitate deep learning deployment in edge locations, today announced a $30 million series A funding round.

The market for edge AI is exploding as more companies deploy the technology in a variety of applications across industries — including in areas like asset maintenance and monitoring, factory automation, and telehealth. The market is expected to be worth $1.83 billion by 2,026 according to a report by Markets and Markets.

Blockchain technology could provide secure communications for robot teams

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cybercrime/malcode, drones, robotics/AI

The transaction-based communications system ensures robot teams achieve their goal even if some robots are hacked.

Imagine a team of autonomous drones equipped with advanced sensing equipment, searching for smoke as they fly high above the Sierra Nevada mountains. Once they spot a wildfire, these leader robots relay directions to a swarm of firefighting drones that speed to the site of the blaze.

But what would happen if one or more leader robots was hacked by a malicious agent and began sending incorrect directions? As follower robots are led farther from the fire, how would they know they had been duped?

Unlocking The Transformational Value Of AI

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

The potential for AI to deliver transformative value is almost unlimited. And yet, accessing that value is by no means a given. So how do we crack the code?

As someone who’s been in the business of deploying enterprise-grade AI solutions since the earliest days of AI—from the inside, as a CIO at Verizon, and from the outside, as an advisor to an AI company ASAPP—I know that our job as CIOs is to get transformational value out of transformational technology. And yet as recently as 2,020 McKinsey reported that less than 25 percent of companies are “seeing significant bottom-line impact” from AI.

I believe that there are at least three ways we need to shift our thinking if our organizations are going to mine the full transformational potential of AI:

Rendered.ai raises $6M on the promise of ending data scarcity

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

The availability of data can paralyze a company and its effort to bring software-centric products and services to market. To solve this issue, two-year-old data startup Rendered.ai is generating synthetic data for the satellite, medical, robotics and automotive industries.

At its most broad, synthetic data is manufactured rather than gathered from the real world. “When we use the term synthetic data what we really mean is engineered simulated datasets, and in particular, we focus on a physics-based simulation,” Rendered.ai CEO Nathan Kundtz explained in a recent interview with TechCrunch.

Kundtz received his PhD in physics from Duke University and cut his teeth in the space industry, heading the satellite antenna developer Kymeta Corporation. After leaving that company, he started working with other small space companies, when he noticed what he called a “chicken and egg” problem.

The Coming Age for Tech x Bio: The ‘Industrial Bio Complex’

Posted by in categories: biological, biotech/medical, food, health, robotics/AI

Driving this revolution has been a new breed and wave of founders and startups that merge the worlds of technology and bio — importantly, not just the old world of biotech (or a narrow definition of tech in bio as only “digital health”), but something much broader, bigger, and blending both worlds. In short, biology — enabled by technology — is eating the world. This has not only changed how we diagnose, treat, and manage disease, but has been changing the way we access, pay for, and deliver care in the healthcare system. It is now entering into manufacturing, food, and several other industries as well. Bio is becoming a part of everything.

This new era of industrialized bio — enabled by AI as well as an ongoing, foundational shift in biology from empirical science to more engineered approaches — will be the next industrial revolution in human history. And propelling it forward is an enormous new driving force, the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, its ever-evolving strains, and the resulting COVID-19 disease pandemic and response — which I believe is analogous to our generation’s World War II (WW2). In other words: a massive global upheaval, but that later led to unprecedented innovation and significant new players.
