Brainlike Computers, Learning From Experience

Brainlike Computers, Learning From Experience | Robots and Robotics | Scoop.it

Computers have entered the age when they are able to learn from their own mistakes, a development that is about to turn the digital world on its head.

Artificial intelligence is the holy grail of technological achievment, creating an entity that can learn from its own mistakes and can (independently of programmer intervention) develop new routines and programs.  The New York Times claims that the first ever "learning" computer chip is to be released in 2014, an innovation that has profound consequences for the tech market.  When these devices become cheaper, this should allow for robotics and device manufacture that incorporates more detailed sensory input and can parse real objects, like faces, from background noise.

Special Ops Uniform Will Transform Commandos Into an Iron Man Army

Special Ops Uniform Will Transform Commandos Into an Iron Man Army | Robots and Robotics | Scoop.it

Army researchers are developing an advanced military uniform that would turn a special ops commando into Iron Man.

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, will deliver “superhuman strength with greater ballistic protection” by providing a powered exoskeleton to haul heavier equipment, liquid armor capable of stopping bullets, built-in computers and night vision, as well as the ability to monitor vital signs and apply wound-sealing foam. Put together, the capabilities would make the already elite Special Operation Forces nearly invincible in the field, says the Army.

This will enable soldiers to become more resistant to hazards in the field.  It will also help neutralize the danger of damaging the muscles and skeleton when having to haul heavy equipment.  

 

The idea of wound sealing foam can greatly improve chances of survival until medical attention can be gained.  

 

Liquid armor has the capacity to help survival rates and decrease injuries from weapons and shrapnel.  The hazard is not eliminated but has become easier to control and preventative measures are implemented to decrease the effects of this hazard.

 

However the issue of development means this type of hazard prevention is far from being available to the every day soldier.  Also does this pose a risk in itself by allowing soldiers to become to reliant on the equipment.  This is always a risk in areas that are hard to access like combat zones.

 

The idea of losing the equipment and then not having trained certain muscles could cause fatigue and result in further injuries to the musculoskeletal zones.

 

The cost of such a technological piece of equipment would be dear.  Would this then mean only certain parts of the armed forces have access to this equipment which still allows for the basis of the hazard to still be current

Not really surprising since we always though it was only a matter of time before someone made a robot shaped like a ball. It's a no-brainer, really.
