Can a robot learn right from wrong? Attempts to imbue robots, self-driving cars and military machines with a sense of ethics reveal just how hard this is CAN we teach a robot to be good? Fascinated by the idea, roboticist Alan Winfield of Bristol Robotics Laboratory in the UK built an ethical trap for a robot - and was stunned by the machine's response. In an experiment, Winfield and his colleagues programmed a robot to prevent other automatons - acting as proxies for humans - from falling into a hole.
Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder is having fun with his friendly Twitter crossover competition against Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams. Space X founder and eccentric billionaire Elon Musk has long-term plans to "establish a city on Mars."
BRADFORD will once again welcome top scientists from across the country after it was announced the British Science Festival is returning to the city. The annual festival was last held in Bradford in 2011, but before that it had been a century since it had been held here.
TOUCH first, ask questions later. That's the motto a robotic deep-sea explorer lives by as it examines the depths by touch.
The Civil Aviation Authority and the CSIRO are discussing the rules under which robotic planes and helicopters take to our skies. Currently, robotic or drone aircraft - used in tasks such as crop-dusting, weeding in national parks, data collection, and monitoring of power lines - must be under the supervision of a remote human pilot.
As part of the company's annual School Transformation Days program, more than 100 volunteers from Fidelity Investments Jersey City engaged students at Rafael De J.

The film focuses on the first 3D printer company, Makerbot, and the several new entries into the field since. What happens when you can suddenly print your own robotic hand? What about your own handgun? The world is suddenly both more dangerous and a better place to be.
Da Vinci Surgery took their medical robot to Seashore Middle Academy Friday to allow the more than 200 fifth-eighth graders there to experience firsthand how new medical technology works.
SAN FRANCISCO: IT WAS EXACTLY a year ago to the day when Intel announced that open source 3D printed robots are on their way, and said that they will bridge the gap between technology and humanity. Well, it seems that they have finally arrived.
Michael Tolley and his team from Harvard University have created a robot that lacks a rigid exoskeleton. Its squishy casing allows it to survive intense conditions and extreme environments, such as temperatures above boiling and below freezing- even under the wheel of an automobile.
Try building with Lego, learning to programme a robot you've built to shoot little balls at a target and figuring out how to make a different robot "look" for and follow your blue shoes. But they were at a recent robotics session at Stratford Primary School, made possible by a donation from Tag Oil which paid for a selection of robotics equipment for the students.
This report discusses the top business risks related to the security of consumer facing portals and the latest identity-related technologies that some organizations are already using or plan to adopt to minimize their risk. more Historically, Healthcare IT has not been a IT trend setter.
