A new robot with AI will tell you who to vote for in the elections is for you

If you can not decide who to vote for in the next election, then in the near future you can come to the aid of a robot equipped with artificial intelligence. His prototype named Nigel was developed by the specialists of the company Kimera, which is headed by its founder Munir Shita.

The creators of Nigel themselves describe him as “the world’s first man with artificial intelligence.” The robot is still at an early stage of development. According to Shita, over the next year the developers plan to teach Nigel to write and read at the level of the pupil of the primary school.

In the process of communicating with the interlocutor, the robot [...]

Arsenal of robots-guards Knightscope replenished with all-terrain model K7

Robotics from the Silicon Valley after a series of incidents with a clunky model K5 finally introduced a new type of artificial guard. This four-wheeled robot-buggy K7 length of 3 m and a height of 1.5 m, designed to move over rough terrain. Together with K7, the K1 model was also introduced, the interest in which turned out to be much lower.

K1 is a robotic inspection station, a stationary object for scanning visitors in buildings, which uses millimeter radiation and AI technologies to search for hidden weapons and prohibited items. In Knightscope they say that he copes with work much better than the typical framework of metal detectors and police guards. Yes, and [...]

Synthetic muscles printed on a 3D printer are three times stronger than human

Humanoid robots have become even more perfect, thanks to artificial muscles, which will allow them to lift the cargo 1000 times its own weight.

New artificial muscles were developed by a team of engineers from Columbia University, headed by Professor Hod Lipson. They are created by the method of 3D printing and have a unique plasticity and mobility. Muscles can produce pushing movements, with their help you can pull, bend, twist, and also lift weights.

The ability to lift heavy loads is provided by a combination of a powerful electric drive and silicone rubber with a low density, in which microbubbles of ethanol are distributed. 3D printing gives the muscles [...]

More than a thousand robots set a new world record for synchronized dance

Over the past year, the world record holder in the nomination “the most massive dance with the participation of robots” has changed three times already. The last achievement, officially registered by representatives of the Guinness Book of Records, took place in China. 1069 robots model Dobi produced by WL Intelligent Technology synchronously danced to electronic music.

This commercially available humanoid robot has a height of 47 cm and boasts a high mobility. All robots are managed remotely, with the help of the application for the smartphone, but with an external identity they are distinguished by “peculiarities of character”. Several [...]
