National Robotics Week: Architectural Robotics

National Robotics Week: Architectural Robotics

Robotics is positioned to fuel a broad array of next-generation products and applications in fields as diverse as manufacturing, healthcare, disaster relief, national security, and transportation. We are kicking off National Robotics Week with a discussion with Keith Evan Green.

National Robotics Week: The Technological Singularity

National Robotics Week: The Technological Singularity

Robotic technologies that we once only saw in the realm of science fiction are quickly becoming reality. Advancements continue to push forward at a dizzying rate, demonstrating a broad array of possibilities and uses for the technology. Artificial limbs, healthcare, national security, communication, and even artificial intelligence programs are just some of the ways robotic technologies have been integrated into our everyday lives.

National Robotics Week continues today with an excerpt from Murray Shanahan’s The Technological Singularity. In this book from the Essential Knowledge Series, Shanahan discusses the hypothetical event in which artificial intelligence would be able to adapt itself without human programming—commonly known as the “technological singularity.” The excerpt describes how advanced AI could communicate with humans.

National Robotics Week: Developmental Robotics

National Robotics Week: Developmental Robotics

In our final post in celebration of National Robotics Week, Matthew Schlesinger and Angelo Cangelosi discuss science’s progress toward creating machines that appear to “think,” express themselves, and have authentic experiences like our own. Schlesinger and Cangelosi are authors of Developmental Robotics: From Babies to Robots, a comprehensive overview of robotics that takes direct inspiration from the developmental and learning phenomena observed in children’s cognitive development.
