Robots Podcast interviews Newton Howard, director of MIT's Mind Machine Project. From the Mind Machine Project website: "The high-level goal of the Mind Machine project is to reconcile natural intelligence with machine intelligence, and in doing so develop and engineer a class of intelligent machines."
"After industrial, service and social robots, Lovotics introduces a new generation of robots, with the ability to love and be loved by humans" (strange & kind of funny: 'Lovotics': The New Science of Engineering Human, Robot Love...
There’s a new Cheetah robot in town, or at least half of one (not to be confused with this other project from MIT, the Cheebot from CMU, or this one by Boston Dynamics) thanks to Tony Lewis and undergraduate student Matt Bunting at the University...
Autonomous cars behaving themselves during the DARPA Urban ChallengeIt's one thing to ramble on (like we do) about how autonomous cars are way safer than human driven cars, but it's another thing to prove it.
Our long-term goal is to develop an autonomous green house consisting of autonomous robots where pots and plants are enhanced with computation, sensing, and communication. The network of robots, pots, and plants transforms energy, water and nutrients into produce and fruits. In this type of precision agriculture system water and nutrients will be delivered locally on-demand and fruit will be harvested optimally.
The professor of robotics at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University is gambling on his boldest venture yet: nabbing the Google Lunar X prize, which awards $20 million to the first privately funded team whose robot reaches the moon, travels 500...

President Obama himself announced that the government would pledge $70 million to a pool of $500 million donated by universities, research institutions, and private industry to develop new robotics technologies. he project, called the National Robotics Initative, is part of a wider effort by the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership to research breakthrough technologies.
This is the second episode of a three part special series about robot art with guest interviewer David St-Onge, an engineer working at the interface of visionary arts and creative science. David was our guest in previous episode with the Robots Podcast about robot art. In today’s show, we talk to Bill Vorn from the University Concordia in Montreal and Louis-Philippe Demers from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapour.
Usual space exploration model topsy-turvinated by ESA - Send humans into space, keep the robots on Earth. Barring certain exceptions, as everyone knows, the usual way for humanity to explore other planets or astronomical bodies is that we send out sophisticated robots to have a look round, controlled by teams of humans here on Earth. But that's boring...
Eugene Robinson, Opinion Writer: The skies over at least six countries are patrolled by robotic aircraft, operated by the US military or the CIA, that fire missiles to carry out targeted assassinations.
The Mind Machine Project (MMP) started in 2009 to revisit fundamental assumptions about the nature of the brain, cognition, computing, and intelligence. The project focuses on four areas of expertise including Mind, Memory, Body, and Brain/Intent with world renowned experts from a wide range of fields joining forces to create Artificial Intelligence (AI).
CASC is a matching grant program funded by the USDA-SCRI and industry to develop comprehensive automation strategies and technologies for the specialty crop industry, with an initial focus on apples and nursery trees. We are a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional group comprised of engineers, scientists, extension educators, growers, and industry representatives in universities, government labs, and companies spanning five states, representing some 70% of all US apple production.
