MIT engineers have successfully developed a microfluidic device that can imitate the transport of water a plant.
Robot makers should learn from ethics and morality from human development. Children are taught about morality even before they begin to learn math.
Artificial Intelligence is fast evolving in healthcare. And with the development of Mabu Personal Healthcare Companion, patient engagement level could be enhanced.
An international team is working on a project to build humanoid robots, also called as Pepper Robots, to enhance the healthcare for the elderly.
Technology advancements have found their way towards tedious occupations and the latest one in focus is one tied up with health and medicine. This has something to do with a robotic system tasked to aid doctors by doing the actual work that is normally left at the surgeon’s hands.
With future A.I. technologies, robots will be able to react to human emotions and develop stable bonds.
Angela Kane representative for Disarmament Affairs of German UN from 2012-2015 expressed her concern about the lethal technology and said that the world is complacent in taking proactive methods to protect the humanity. "It may be too late," she told a debate in Davos
SETI Director Seth Shostak believes a designer 'alien' species will soon replace humans this century.
Drawing inspiration from origami - a Japanese art of folding paper into 3-D objects - researchers have devised a way to coax flat sheets of composite materials to transform themselves into complex robots.
Robots and artificial intelligence programs will become a regular part of life by 2025, rolling into stores, homes and workplaces, according to experts. But according to a new report, there's no similar consensus on what that will mean - good or bad.
Researchers have unveiled a pair of new robot guides at a Tokyo museum that look so eerily human and speak so smoothly they almost outdo humans.
Scientists at Festo - a German automation company - have created a kangaroo-like bot named BionicKangroo.
Scientists have developed a new aquatic robot that completely replicates realistic movements of fish producing an illusion of a real animal. The robot is also identical in basic engineering.
A team of scientists have created a tactile sensors made from composite films of carbon nanotubes and silver nano-particles that can feel as small as a single Pascal of pressure. A single Pascal is equivalent to the pressure that is exerted on a table surface by a dollar bill.
Roboticists from the Georgia Institute of Technology created a robot arm that could pick up objects based on the sense of touch.
