The adoption of AI in healthcare has been a hot topic of discussion, and rightly so. With the promise of life-altering changes in healthcare services, AI is believed to hold the potential to improve quality of services while cutting down on the costs.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary research area at the interface of computer science and engineering. Robotics involves design, construction, operation, and use of robots. The goal of robotics is to design intelligent machines that can help and assist humans in their day-to-day lives and keep everyone safe.
The ability to camouflage according to their environment is one of the superpowers many living beings on earth possess. Borrowing the same cue from nature, robots have now progressed to imbibe shape-changing features to suit their surrounds. Here’s how:
The divide that separates humans and robots is getting more blurred by the day. While robots ace at practical tasks, they lack heavily in the emotional department. Will they continue to be the same, making humans irreplaceable?
Racial discrimination of any sort is highly ridiculed today and very rightly so. But does it still show up in unexpected places? Sadly, yes. Research suggests that robotics and AI, closely related to human behavioral traits, are also not immune to the impact of the same.
Owing to the global shift of workforce preferences from humans to robots, accelerated greatly by lockdown and its unavoidable impact, the recent breakthrough that integrates grasp analysis with arm motion planning to compute optimal smooth arm motions in robots is of great importance.
A new technology being developed by a group of scientists will help improve control of robotic hands. This upgrade will help amputees have better individual finger control and automation for improved grasping and scope of movement.
