Meet Pepper, Aldebaran’s New Personal Robot With an “Emotion Engine”

Filed under: Presse — Schlagworte: — berndvo @ 15:13

French robotics company Aldebaran unveiled today its newest robot, a friendly humanoid named Pepper that seems determined to make everyone smile. Pepper talks, gesticulates, and zips by on wheels. And it has an “emotion engine,” designed to understand how people are feeling and react accordingly.

Aldebaran built the robot for SoftBank, the Japanese telecom giant, which plans to start selling it to consumers in Japan next February for 198,000 yen, or about US $1,900. The robot will be produced by Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn, which makes iPhones and other Apple products.

fMRI Reads Thoughts In Real Time to Remotely Control Robot

Filed under: Presse — Schlagworte: — berndvo @ 14:04

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a remarkable technology: it can be used to do everything from recording your dreams on video to teaching you new skills while you sleep. It’s also good for controlling robots, and Israeli researchers have managed to get a robot to move around a room just by thinking about it.

Roboter lernen Greifen

Viele Jobs, die wir mit unseren Händen erledigen, kommen uns simpel vor. Doch für Roboter sind es Herkulesaufgaben. Neuroinformatiker arbeiten deswegen daran, ihnen die menschliche Grifftechnik beizubringen – und müssen die Maschinen vor ihrer eigenen Kraft schützen.

Humanoid Robots Rise. Now, Can They Walk?

Filed under: Presse — Schlagworte: — berndvo @ 21:55

Japan has long held world dominance when it comes to full-body walking humanoid robots. There’s the pioneering Waseda robots, the impressive HRP series, the diminutive but nimble Sony Qrio and Toyota Partner robots, and of course, the country’s most famous emissary: the charismatic, child-size, astronaut-like Honda Asimo, which ambles, runs, and climbs stairs with (almost) perfect precision. Until recently, only South Korea — with its Hubo and Mahru robots — had demonstrated humanoids with legs as impressive as those of their Japanese counterparts.

Will Robots Evolve to Ask: “What is Life?”

Filed under: Presse — Schlagworte: — berndvo @ 10:46

There is ongoing debate about what constitutes life. Synthetic bacteria for example, are created by man and yet also alive. Some go so far as to say that robot “emotions” may already have occurred—that current robots have not only displayed emotions, but in some ways have experienced them.

“We’re all machines,” says Rodney Brooks author of “Flesh and Machines,” and former director of M.I.T.’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory,  “Robots are made of different sorts of components than we are — we are made of biomaterials; they are silicon and steel — but in principle, even human emotions are mechanistic.” A robot’s level of a feeling like sadness could be set as a number in computer code, he said. But isn’t a human’s level of sadness basically a number, too, just a number of the amounts of various neurochemicals circulating in the brain? Why should a robot’s numbers be any less authentic than a human’s?
