Japanese scientists have created a robot that can "feel" pain. Scientists hope that the pain sensors will help robots to develop empathy for humans and to act as compassionate companions.
Researchers at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) have announced a new version of their hydraulic, quadrupedal robot, HyQReal — and what better way to show off the bot’s capabilities than by pulling a three-ton airplane.
As well as being skillfull, the SpotMini is strong, as demonstrated in Boston Dynamics' new video. Together, a powerful group of 10 K9s drags a huge truck across the ground.
The six-engine jet that will be used to launch rockets into space took off from Mojave Airport in California last Saturday. The first flight of Stratolaunch lasted 2 hours and 30 minutes and reached 5,180 meters.
Designed to safely perform intricate, human-centered tasks, Blue will cost $5k and help accelerate research towards useful home robots.
MIT'S new mini cheetah robot is the first four-legged robot to do a backflip. At only 20 pounds the limber quadruped can bend and swing its legs wide, enabling it to walk either right side up or upside down.
Elon Musk unveiled the very first tunnel in what he hopes will become a network of underground highways. The test tunnel runs between the headquarters of Musk's SpaceX company and a parking lot over a mile away.
Scientists have developed a 3D-printed robotic hand which can play simple musical phrases on the piano. And while the robot is no virtuoso, it demonstrates how challenging it is to replicate all the abilities of a human hand.
This photo is captured by Chinese Satellite with 24.9 billion pixels of quantum technology. You can zoom in, zoom out when you look at it. You can clearly see every gesture, even face of pedestrians on the road.
China's news agency has created artificial intelligence news presenters - modeled off other, real news anchors.
The Boring Company’s first tunnel is set for an unveiling in just over a month’s time. The two-mile tunnel, built by the SpaceX campus in California, US could be the sign of things to come in the world of transportation.
Robot Atlas does parkour. The control software uses the whole body including legs, arms and torso, to marshal the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps without breaking its pace.
The Wendelstein 7-X stellarator is close to hitting sustainable nuclear fusion (generating more energy than is initially required to start the reaction).
Today SpaceX will launch its 15th cargo mission to the International Space Station for NASA. On board Falcon 9 among other supplies is the first ever AI robot “crew member” to live on the station.
IBM Project Debater is the latest artificial intelligence that pulls in data from hundreds of millions of sources to win a debating argument.
