'Soft' Robots From MIT and Harvard Open Up Possibilities for New Class of Bots

'Soft' Robots From MIT and Harvard Open Up Possibilities for New Class of Bots | Education Technology | Scoop.it

The science of soft robotics is making big leaps as teams from MIT and Harvard have recently shown off new prototypes, hoping to challenge the way.

 

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, led by director Daniela Rus, already has a portfolio of untraditional robots, inspired by the movements of living creatures. Their robots fly like falcons, perch like pigeons, and swim like swordfish. This week, at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, a new robot was unveiled which moves like a snake through a pipe-like environment without the need for a human operator.

Bettina Ascaino's insight:

“I want to challenge the notion that robots have to look or act a certain way”, says Andrew Marchese, a doctoral candidate at MIT’s CSAIL who worked on the project.

Delphine Evers's comment, September 16, 9:41 AM
La capture d'écran peut être un moyen de convaincre, elle peut offrir un diagnostic et donne une dimension réaliste à la nécessité de traiter ou d'apprendre... de changer de comportement dans les pratiques. L'image vaut mieux que mille mots et peut renvoyer vers un lien, une application pour en savoir plus, un résumé succin ou un slogan peuvent accrocher et donner envie d'aller voir plus loin. La mise en avant de l'image pour attirer l'attention est importante, comment mettre en avant l'image, il s'agit du pouvoir des mots et de l'image mais aussi de la créativité générée autour de cela.

GEN | Insight & Intelligence™: Smartphone Based Biosensors—Just What the mDiagnostician Ordered

GEN | Insight & Intelligence™: Smartphone Based Biosensors—Just What the mDiagnostician Ordered | Education Technology | Scoop.it
Mix-and-match peripherals on a common platform may support myriad tests.

 

f you had to pick the most compelling mHealth, or mobile health, application, you might well pick mDiagnostics—the ability to perform laboratory work outside the laboratory. mDiagnostics promises to bring on-the-spot testing to poor and remote areas where conventional tools such as microscopes, cytometers, and colorimeters are unavailable.

Mobile, off-the-grid diagnostic tools are best compact. But, beyond that, choices abound. mDiagnostic tools could be sleek, self-contained, standalone devices. Or they could be modular. For example, an mDiagnostic tool could consist of an add-on device plugged into a general-purpose platform, the smartphone.

Over the past couple of years, smartphone-based devices have been introduced by various developers. Invariably, the developers declare that the smartphone is the ultimate mDiagnosis platform. After all, they say, the smartphone is already ubiquitous. Moreover, it has computational capacity to spare, as well as a built-in camera. Finally, as a GPS-enabled communications device, a smartphone platform could readily integrate point-of-care diagnostics with public-health projects, such as mapping the spread of an infectious disease.

All of this is plausible. But it still misses what may be the strongest argument for smartphone-based diagnostics—the smartphone-centric approach efficiently deploys developer resources. This approach may lead to a thriving development ecosystem.

Curiously, the idea of cultivating a development ecosystem is seldom presented by developers. Recently, however, this idea was clearly articulated by academic researchers, in “Biosensing with cell phones,” an article that appeared in the journal Trends in Biotechnology.

Any reader willing to endure the academese will readily discern the argument’s outline: 1) If you need “apps,” you need application developers. 2) To attract the services of as many application developers as possible, use a familiar, open platform. (With such a platform, developers needn’t be hardware specialists—modularized hardware elements conform to the same standards, so they readily communicate with each other.) 3) Developers, empowered to work with any hardware configuration, may focus on their “value add.”

This last point, of course, is where things get interesting. It is, most commonly, where developers address the needs of specific market segments. In mDiagnostics, it is where developers may focus on particular kinds of tests, which typically rely on specialized biosensors.

Needless to say, no standalone mDiagnostic device could ever stand in for an entire laboratory. Instead, multiple devices would have to stand in for multiple pieces of equipment, each dedicated to a different kind of test. Here, again, the modular approach makes sense. It lets mDiagnostic practitioners hold onto a core device—the smartphone—while plugging in add-on devices as needed. The add-on devices may even be disposable.
