More than 10 million UK workers are at high risk of being replaced by robots within 15 years as the automation of routine tasks gathers pace in a new machine age, a report. The report by the consultancy firm PwC found that 30 percent of jobs in Britain were potentially under threat from breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI).
The students of Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) Pune and technology giant IBM have developed a robot, Chintu, which would assist senior citizens in their everyday tasks. Chintu, under 2ft tall robot, was developed after MIT Pune received a grant of Rs 10 lakh last year from IBM. It is powered by the US-based company's cognitive assistant, IBM Watson. Chintu can move his hands and read books to an audience.
US based edutech institution Udacity on Thursday announcement the launch of two new innovative nanodegree program in robotics and digital marketing for the students across the globe. The company also announced a series of partnerships with leading players in various sectors like China's ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing, digital payment platform Paytm, online pharmacy 1mg, Zomato and others.
Researchers have developed an algorithm that lets robots ask for clarification when they are not sure what exactly a person wants them to fetch, especially when there are lots of very similar objects in close proximity to each other.
Scientists have developed a new robotic arm that can re-create a digital doodle with pen and paper, by mimicking a user's drawing motions. The robotic drawing arm, dubbed Line-us, was designed by a team of researchers, who combined their knowledge of kinetic art, drawing machines and internet-connected microprocessor chips to develop the idea.
Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have developed a robotic arm that can drastically cut down the cost of performing complex, minimally invasive procedures, also known as laparoscopic surgery. Minimally invasive procedures could lead to fewer traumas for patients and shorter recovery times after surgery.
In a surprise find, 89 percent of people, including from India are positive about the role robots can play in helping them at workplace rather than taking away their jobs, a new report has found. According to the "Future of Work" study by Adobe released on Friday, people are open to man and machine collaboration for work benefits. The study was conducted in regions including India, the US, Britain and Australia.
Robots and artificial intelligence (AI) may replace 250,000 public sector workers, including doctors and nurses, in the UK over the next 15 years and save taxpayers billions, a new report published today said. According to public-services thinktank Reform, websites and AI "chat bots" could replace up to 90 percent of Whitehall's administrators, as well as tens of thousands in the National Health Service (NHS) and surgeries, by 2030 - saving as much as four billion pounds a year.
A new self-contained robot that mimics the key flight mechanisms of bats has been developed by scientists. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Caltech have developed Bat Bot (B2) with soft, articulated wings that can mimic the biological bats.
Highlighting the importance of data and smart and connected solutions in transforming the retail industry, Intel has unveiled Simbe Robotics Tally -- the world's first robotic autonomous shelf auditing and analytics solution for retail. The solution was unveiled at NRF 2017, an annual convention and expo in New York City on Monday.
Not just smartphones, convertibles or cameras, it was time for ground-breaking products in 5G technology, self-driving vehicles, digital health, Artificial Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), robotics and machine learning to be showcased at the world's biggest annual electronics event here. As CES 2017 celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, the mega electronics event was also a record-breaker in hosting more than 600 startups and more than 175,000 industry professionals -- including 55,000 from outside the US.
In a move aimed at doing away with the rigid touch most robots are associated with, researchers have devised a way for a soft robot to feel its surroundings internally, in much the same way humans do. A robot with a human-like touch can have several applications. In tests, the researchers found that their robot could differentiate between ripe tomatoes from the unripe ones.
Surgical robots are suitable for complicated surgery but they would not replace human surgeons any time soon, said experts present at the bi-annual Robotic Surgeons Council (RSC meet), initiated by the Vattikuti Foundation, a US-based non-profit organisation.
Researchers have developed the world's first light-seeking synthetic nanorobot that can help surgeons remove tumours and enable more precise engineering of targeted medications. With size comparable to a blood cell, these tiny robots have the potential to be injected into a patient's body, the study said. The nanorobot, developed by a team of researchers led by Jinyao Tang from the University of Hong Kong, used light as the propelling force.
Do not be surprised if tomorrow your children are taught by robots in their primary school classrooms as Spanish researchers are close to developing robotic tutors that can detect the emotional state of children while interacting with educational software which will ultimately improve their learning experience. Luis Imbernon Cuadrado and co-workers at the Department of Artificial Intelligence at Technical University of Madrid in Spain developed an integrated computational architecture (ARTIE) that helped them build a robotic tutor platform, MONICA, which integrates the educational software Scratch to a commercially available robot.
Scientists, including one of Indian origin, are developing soft, flexible robots that behave like human muscles and may help people with movement impairments, such stroke victims. The robots developed by researchers at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne) in Switzerland are made of low-cost materials and may easily be produced in large scale. Soft robots, powered by muscle-like actuators, are designed to be used on the human body in order to help people move. They are made of elastomers, including silicon and rubber, and so they are inherently safe. They are controlled by changing the air pressure in specially designed 'soft balloons', which also serve as the robot's body. Potential applications for these robots include patient rehabilitation, handling fragile objects, biomimetic systems and home care.
