"The researchers found that their CNN system achieved 93% success in object recognition, and 76% on grasp recognition. This ended up with a 83% success rate for manipulation actions by the robots, although they admit the robot did get confused about how to handle the tofu." :excerpt

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 23, 2015 9:42 PM

As the old saying goes:  "The devil is in the details."  Perhaps the authors of this overly optimistic view of our future should re-read Isaac Assimov's "I, Robot" and his psychohistory known as the "Foundation Series." Once robots become sentient and can program themselves without human intervention, our tenure on this planet will be brief.  Much of our robotic future will depend on who programs these devices and defines the roles robots will play in our future.  At the very least, powerful people will control the emerging Artificial Intelligence networks, and it won't matter who rules us--robots or self-centered humans.  Another idealistic vision with serious flaws.  Aloha, Russ.

Pepper the robot recognizes your emotions and shows its own

Pepper the robot recognizes your emotions and shows its own | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Japanese tech firm SoftBank has announced that its emotion-sensing robot, Pepper, will go on sale in Japan from June 20. The company says that Pepper is the world’s first personal robot that can read a person's emotions. In addition, it has been designed to portray emotions of its own.

Pepper was announced last year and is described as being emotional rather than functional. SoftBank says the aim of the robot is to help people grow, to enhance their lives and relationships, and to have have fun with its users.

The robot's emotions are influenced by factors including people’s facial expressions, the things people say, and its surroundings. These are monitored by a variety of sensors, such as cameras, touch sensors and accelerometers, and they affect Pepper's subsequent words and actions. The robot might raise its voice or sigh depending on its emotion at the time, and the prevailing emotions are also shown on a display.

By way of example, SoftBank says that Pepper is typically at ease when it is around people it knows, is happy when praised and gets scared when the lights go down. The firm says it modeled Pepper's emotion functions on the release of hormones in humans in response to stimuli perceived by the senses.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, June 9, 2015 8:58 PM

Mark Schaefer has written another insightful article about the impact of technology on blogs. Say it ain't so, Mark! While huge strides are being made with natural language processing, and as Mark says in the article, there are always new tools that come out to help us with improving our writing, hopefully machines won't completely replace actual writers over time. There is something about the human element that makes it all personal. After all, I don't think a machine can talk about personal experiences the same way that a human can, now can it?

Artificial Intelligence Will Kill Capitalism

Artificial Intelligence Will Kill Capitalism | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

For a long time, artificial intelligence was little more than science fiction — now it's now just a matter of time until it becomes reality. The boom of computing capabilities have seen the power of servers multiplied a billion times over in the span of just 31 years, making it likely that an artificial intelligence superior to our own will emerge in the coming decades.
