All in all, from inventory checking to monitoring noise levels and more, the robotic bees, astrobees, are all set to be helpers, and they will serve as the crew's extra eyes and ears.
Chinese scientists, using a 3-D printer equipped with a coaxial needle, print patterns that can harvest and store electricity onto fabrics, giving it the ability to transform movement into energy.
The supercomputer will be called Aurora and Intel is aiming to deliver it by 2021. Aurora will apply AI and high-performance computing to "areas such as cancer research and climate modeling.
If we are going to make machines with human psychological capacities, we should prepare for the possibility that they may become sentient. How then will they react to our behaviour towards them?
