More than 60 percent of the 80 respondents believe that superintelligent AIs would not be developed in the foreseeable future, which in this case means beyond twenty five years from now.
In a scientific breakthrough, for the first time, a mind-controlled robotic arm makes a paralyzed man, 28-year-old Nathan Copeland, feel the sensation of touch 10 years after his accident.
Giant automotive company, Toyota, created a non-automotive product that will hopefully appeal to the emotions of an aging, childless Japanese population: a baby robot.
For hobbyists of rare and vintage electronics, summers at the Massachusetts Instution of Technology (MIT) must be paradise. Swapfest, a kind of flea market in a small parking lot in campus, gathers together buyers and sellers of everything high-tech and obscure from massive telescopes to antique radios.
A sexbot conference in Manchester, Britain discusses the possibility of intimate relationships in the digital age, specifically robots. In the near future, robots may have the ability to have sex with human beings or perform sex acts using virtual reality devices. Because of this, the question is: will robots be better in bed?
