Robo-picker grasps and packs
Unpacking groceries is a straightforward albeit tedious task: You reach into a bag, feel around for an item, and pull it out. A quick glance will tell you what the item is and where it should be stored. Now engineers from MIT and Princeton University have developed a robotic system that may one day lend a hand with this household chore, as well as assist in other picking and sorting tasks, from organizing products in a warehouse to clearing debris from a disaster zone.

Maximizing the environmental benefits of autonomous vehicles
Maximizing the environmental benefits of autonomous vehicles
ANN ARBOR-The added weight, electricity demand and aerodynamic drag of the sensors and computers used in autonomous vehicles are significant contributors to their lifetime energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study. However, when savings from the driving efficiencies associated with self-driving vehicles are factored into the equation, the net result is a reduction in lifetime energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions of up to 9 percent compared to the conventional vehicles examined in the University of Michigan-led study.

Neural networks everywhere
Most recent advances in artificial-intelligence systems such as speechor face-recognition programs have come courtesy of neural networks, densely interconnected meshes of simple information processors that learn to perform tasks by analyzing huge sets of training data. But neural nets are large, and their computations are energy intensive, so they're not very practical for handheld devices.

Artificial intelligence is growing up fast: what’s next for thinking machines?
Our lives are already enhanced by AI - or at least an AI in its infancy - with technologies using algorithms that help them to learn from our behaviour. As AI grows up and starts to think, not just to learn, we ask how human-like do we want their intelligence to be and what impact will machines have on our jobs?  Perhaps we want to build systems that 'fill the gaps that humans cannot reach', whether it's AI that thinks in non-human ways or AI that doesn't think at all José Hernandez-Orallo We are well on the way to a world in which many aspects of our daily lives will depend on AI systems.
