While people do believe the biggest impact of machine learning lies in developments in the Silicon Valley, we may all be wrong.
In March 2016, a Syrian refugee named Rakan Ghebar started seeing a counsellor. He works at a vice-principal at a school for displaced Syrian children, and when he was asked for advice, he was always told to focus on the present.
More than 80 participants are part of a study that wants to explore the potential of virtual reality in relieving anxiety. This means students such as Amanda Chodak has been transported away from the snowy patches of Mount Royal University's campus and into a beach in California.
2016 has been a big year for technological developments. There's been a shift towards the consumer experience, and it will continue in 2017. However there is a need to redefine it to allow small businesses to compete with their larger counterparts.
Manufacturers have already made it clear: the future of manufacturing will have more technology, greater automation and an increased use of collaborative robots.
Scientists, Humanities Scholar, tech writers, sex writers, robot enthusiasts and journalists gathered together at Goldsmiths, University of London for the Second International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots.
The Chinese army has revealed their up-and-coming combat biomorphic robots. These are robots designed to not only look but also function like animals made of metals. On all fours and massive, biomorphic robots may be the future of warfare technology. What makes it worse is that China is not the only country that has them.
A new non-invasive brain-computer interface allows people to control a robotic arm using only their minds.
A team of engineers from UC Berkeley has built a tiny robot with the highest recorded robotic vertical jumping agility. The new technology could aid in rescue and search operations during disasters in urban areas.
NASA is currently studying a new type of material ideal for space robotic systems called Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG).
NASA will use Alexa-enabled robots for their mission to Mars in 2020 that might land a spacecraft on the red planet.
New research from Georgia Tech has revealed one interesting discovery on cats' tongue anatomy. This new discovery has led scientists to conceptualize "soft robotics" which can be used for gripping items.
A humanoid robot toddler called iCub has been giving psychologists vital clues as to how children acquire new words. This discovery indicates that early learning in children is not based on conscious thought. Instead, they have an automatic ability to associate objects that enables infants to quickly understand their environment.
Mankind is on the verge of another breakthrough in the realm of artificial intelligence. A new AI system can now "predict" how a scene "unfolds" and even create what it thinks is the next course of events of situations -- from an image at least.
