A Scientist Predicts the Future

A Scientist Predicts the Future | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future. Their accomplishments and dreams are eye-opening. From my conversations with them, here’s a glimpse of what to expect in the coming decades:

I think the future is unpredictable, and no one  can predict the future!

Des technologies de fibres d'avant-garde pour l'Internet de prochaine génération | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

Des chercheurs du projet MODE-GAP («Multi-mode capacity enhancement with PBG fibre»), financé par l'UE, s'efforcent de renforcer la capacité de l'internet en développant et en testant des technologies de fibres avancées.

Leurs travaux pourraient constituer le fondement des réseaux d'accès haute capacité nécessaires à l'acheminement direct de nouvelles applications telles que la télévision haute définition, les jeux interactifs et la vidéo à la demande aux abonnés par fibre.

Photovoltaïque : deux nouvelles technologies développées par une entreprise américaine | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

"En raison de l’orientation, de l’inclinaison, de l’ombre portée par l’environnement extérieur (arbres, autres bâtiments) et du manque de place, installer une installation solaire sur un bâtiment n’est pas toujours une chose aisée. Une entreprise américaine met au point des nouvelles technologies qui permettent aux panneaux photovoltaïques de mieux s’intégrer dans l’architecture des bâtiments. Onyx Solar vient d’installer le tout premier sol photovoltaïque, baptisé « SolarWalk », à l’Université de Washington, mais aussi d’achever la réalisation d’une double lucarne photovoltaïque sur le toit du siège social de Novartis dans le New Jersey, près de New York.

Poppy, a 3D-printed humanoid robot that defies conventions | GizMag.com

Poppy, a 3D-printed humanoid robot that defies conventions | GizMag.com | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

A new 3D-printed robot called Poppy is helping a team of French researchers study bipedal walking and human-robot interaction. They were able to design, fabricate, and assemble a relatively large robot for around €8,000 (US$11,000) including servo motors and electronics. That's about a third the cost of commercial robots in the same size category like the RQ-TITAN, and is still cheaper than smaller humanoids like the Aldebaran Robotics NAO. And best of all, they plan to make their design open source.

 

One of the ways they managed to keep the cost down is by using lightweight materials, which means the robot requires less powerful (and cheaper) servo motors. Standing 84 cm (33 in) tall, Poppy weighs in at just 3.5 kg (7.7 lb). The Sony QRIO, by comparison, was 26 cm (10 in) shorter yet it weighed twice as much. Still, most of the cost lies in the robot's 25 servo motors: it utilizes 21 high-end Robotis Dynamixel MX-28s, two MX-64s, and two AX-12s. It's powered by a Raspberry Pi, and is equipped with 16 force-sensing resistors, two HD cameras, a stereo microphone, and an inertial measurement unit. Poppy's "face" is an LCD screen which can be used to show emotions (or to debug).

"How old is the binary number system? Perhaps far older than the invention of computers or even the invention of binary math in the West. The residents of a tiny Polynesian island may have been doing calculations in binary—a number system with only two digits—centuries before it was described by Gottfried Leibniz, the co-inventor of calculus, in 1703..."

Reality Robotics Limited proudly presents the Be the Robot™ Project!

What is the Be the Robot™ project you may ask?

It is an expertly-engineered-5-motor-wireless-animated-mobile-robotic-toy-platform that features an advanced internal operating system for communicating through an open source APP with an Android™ (and iOS coming later) smartphone through Bluetooth™. After digesting all that, we thought we would summarize our awesome robot as “BERO” (pronounced, Bee-Ro), a nickname for our Be the Robot™.

Retour sur les étapes qui ont permis d'en arriver là."

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 2, 2013 6:07 PM

"The growing power of computer vision is a crucial first step for the next generation of computing, robotic and artificial intelligence systems. Once machines can identify objects and understand their environments, they can be freed to move around in the world. And once robots become mobile they will be increasingly capable of extending the reach of humans or replacing them."
