UPDATE 1-South Korean cafe hires robot barista to help with social distancing

update 1-south korean cafe hires robot barista to help with social distancing

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

(Clarifies developer, adds upgrade efforts in paragraphs 4, 8) By Hyonhee Shin DAEJEON, South Korea, May 25 (Reuters) – The new robot barista at a cafe in Daejeon, South Korea, is courteous and swift as it seamlessly makes its way towards customers. “Here is your Rooibos almonds tea latte, please enjoy. It’s even better if you stir it,” it says, as a customer reaches for her drink on a tray installed within the large, gleaming white, capsule-shaped robot. After managing to contain an outbreak of the new coronavirus that infected more than 11,000 and killed 269, South Korea is slowly transitioning from intensive social distancing rules towards what the government calls “distancing in daily life”. Robots could help people observe social distancing in public, said Lee Dong-bae, director of research at Vision Semicon, the smart factory solution provider that developed the robot barista. “Our system needs no input from people from order to delivery, and tables are sparsely arranged to ensure smooth movements of the robots, which fits well with the current distancing campaign,” he said. The system, which uses a coffee-making robotic arm and a serving robot, can make 60 different types of coffee and serves the drinks to customers at their seats. It …

Robotic Explorer Captures Incredible 4K Footage of Deep-Sea Creatures

robotic explorer captures incredible 4k footage of deep-sea creatures

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

As the narrator describes in the video, what’s amazing is that prior to this, no human eyes have ever seen this piece of the ocean floor. I was immediately hooked by the immense beauty as soon as I saw the first creature. 

First of all, the quality of the video is simply fantastic. I know that this isn’t always important, but it really does help a great deal, especially when you want to see lots and lots of detail. Even if this video didn’t have the kind of quality it offers, the content itself is, as quoted in the video description, “just stunning.” My favorite part of the video is seeing the sea cucumber, because at a distance, it seems it’s covered in hair; however, as the video zooms in, you notice that it’s not hair and instead, it’s a huge number of Hydroids. 

The remotely operated vehicle, or ROV for short, used to capture the footage is named SuBastian. This explorer can go to depths as deep as 4,500 m, at which point the pressure would be far beyond anything anyone could handle. At such depths, sunlight is probably not going to be any help whatsoever. For this reason, SuBastian …

Chris Aimone co-founded Muse with an ethos to create technology that expands our perspective of ourselves and the world around us.An artist and inventor at heart, Chris’ creative and design practice has spanned many fields, including architecture, augmented reality, computer vision, music and robotics. Looking to bring innovative new experiences to life, Chris has built installations for the Ontario Science Centre and contributed to major technology art projects featured around the world (including Burning Man).Can you share with us how your love of Robotics and Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) began?When I was very young, instead of playing with popular/trendy children’s toys, I was interested in tools – so much so, that my favorite book was actually a catalogue of tools (at 18 months) and I wanted a sewing machine for Christmas when I was 3.I was interested in what tools could do – how they could extend my reach into the impossible, and my love for robotics and BMI was simply an extension of that. I was so curious about what lay just beyond the limits of my body’s capabilities, just beyond the range of my senses.  It makes a lot of sense in a way, as I …

Iran Develops Robotic Surgeon to Conduct Tough Operations | Iran Front Page

iran develops robotic surgeon to conduct tough operations | iran front page

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

An Iranian company says it has produced the equipment required for conducting robotic surgery at a very low cost.Sina Company, the developer of the robot surgeon, says the invention has been registered in the United States and China.It said the company intends to sell the product at the global market in a bid to significantly reduce the global cost of robotic surgery, as these surgeries are very expensive now and only rich countries can afford them.The company’s CEO says, “From the beginning, we’ve been looking to build a system whose tools are close to the conventional surgical system, but at a low cost. While the US-made robotic surgery requires about $4,000 or $5,000, the operation cost of our version is $400 or $500. So we were looking to build a system that would reduce the cost of robotic surgery.”This Iranian product needs to obtain local certifications in various parts of the world. For example, Europe needs CE, China needs CFDE, and the United States needs FDA. Thus, Sina Company’s strategy is to enter into negotiations with local partners so that they can invest locally. They can act independently to receive the necessary certificates and enter regional markets …

Robots could help save your local store from going out of business

robots could help save your local store from going out of business

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The technology that Adore Me is now using is not new. Automated fulfillment centers pioneered by behemoths like Amazon and Ocado Technology are vast places, with thousands of robots shunting millions of bins across spaces the size of several soccer fields. But in the last few years the tech has become more distributed as the online shopping market has matured. As robotic warehousing systems become more compact and more modular, more retailers are choosing to install their own, tailored to their business needs and available space. Instead of filling several city blocks, the new generation of systems can be installed in a supermarket stockroom.This shift toward smaller-scale automation distributed across multiple locations has come as the retail sector is in danger of collapsing. According to the US Department of Commerce, retail sales in the US fell by 16.4% last month—the worst drop since reporting began in 1992. The previous record—a drop of 8.3%—was set in March. With shoppers stuck at home, retailers are suffering across the board. Many physical stores have been shuttered. Spike in demand It’s not all bad news, however. Others are seeing their online business explode and finding it hard to meet demand. In the …

Five burn-in’ questions on ‘the real robotic revolution’

five burn-in’ questions on ‘the real robotic revolution’

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

A future where artificial intelligence controls Washington D.C. may not be far off, according to a new book from Peter Singer and August Cole: “Burn-In, a Novel of the Real Robotic Revolution.” Like the authors’ previous book, “Ghost Fleet: A Novel of the Next World War,” “Burn-In” is a blend of fiction and facts that explore how technology will shape the future. The science fiction thriller showcases over 300 technological trends that the authors believe will push the United States into a new industrial revolution. The story revolves around an FBI agent and its robot partner working to stop a cyber-terrorist who has taken control over the nation’s capital. Singer, a strategist and senior fellow at the non-partisan think tank New America, spoke with Chiara Vercellone about what inspired the book, the response from officials how the duo researched it. This interview has been edited for brevity. C4ISRNET: This novel blends fictional characters with extensive research on what technology might be like in the future. You show how AI might have an effect on everything, from politics and economy to our society. Why is this realistic in such a short amount of time? SINGER: We conducted research on …
