The Rise of Artificial Intelligence | PBS Digital Studios

Artificial intelligence is an ever evolving goal for researchers, and the object of endless fascination for writers, filmmakers, and the general public. But despite our best science fiction visions, creating digital intelligence is incredibly difficult. The universe is a very complicated place, and humans have had millions of years to evolve the ability to navigate and make sense of it. Contemporary attempts to create AI have us looking more at how our own brains work to see how a computer could simulate the core activities that create our intelligence. No matter how we get there, it is certain that artificial intelligence will have tremendous impact on our society and economy, and lead us down a path towards evolving our own definitions of humanity.

Intelligent Autonomous Systems

This talk describes the current research path towards intelligent, semi-autonomous systems, where both humans and automation tightly interact, and together, accomplish tasks such as searching for survivors of a hurricane using a team of UAVs with sensors with highly efficient interaction. This talk is describes the current state of the art in 1) intelligent robotic (only) systems, 2) modeling human decisions and 3) semi-autonomous systems, with a focus on information exchange, and command and control.

 

Mark Campbell is the S.C. Thomas Sze Director of the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University.

Project AFFETTO - the most advanced affectional baby robot from Japan

Having previously developed several baby robots, the researchers at Osaka University’s Asada Lab are using that know-how to build the most realistic infant robot ever made. It has been about a year and a half since we saw Affetto, which was just a head capable of making a few expressions. Now the researchers have published a video showing the robot’s new upper-body, which contains 20 pneumatic actuators to move its arms, neck, and spine. This is in addition to the 12 degrees of freedom in its head. Although pneumatic actuators are more difficult to control compared to electric motors, they are flexible, allowing for direct physical interaction (a big plus if you want to be able to cuddle it).
