A new restaurant chain called Eatsa is unlike any fast-food chain we've seen before. The restaurant is almost fully automated, functioning like a vending machine that spits out freshly-prepared quinoa bowls. When customers enter Eatsa, they order their food at an iPad kiosk. Hidden behind the wall of cubbies, kitchen staff prepare...
A pair of monkeys have learned to control a robotic wheelchair by thought alone, using electrodes implanted into their brains. Scientists were able to decode neural signals from the animals and turn these into commands for the wheelchair, allowing the monkeys to drive across a room to retrieve grapes from...
These headlines-and there were several-stem from comments by Rice University's computer scientist Moshe Vardi who at the weekend asked what society would do when, within 30 years, machines become capable of doing almost any job a human can. This report predicted that 47% of jobs in the US were under...
A team of Swiss researchers have taught drones to recognise and follow forest trails. Drones are an efficient complement to human rescuers and can be deployed in large numbers, are inexpensive and prompt, and thus minimise the response time and the risk of injury for those who are lost or...
Automation in processes is the name of the game.  With each passing day, robots get better and smarter than ever before. This is not surprising given the rate of human errors we get with manual processes. Now it seems like robots are headed to even more lucrative careers. These replace intuition with algorithms, plus they...
The concept of technologists volunteering to present their work and comment on that presented by others can result in a product similar to products that a commercial entity may produce. Many argue that this is among the best innovation catalysts in the technology sector. As a result, renowned names in the...
A manned flight to Mars remains a task that has not been taken on by anyone yet. For now, we can only send robots for landing on the foreign planet. Curiosity seems to have discovered something special on the Red planet. Known as silica, this material is found on Earth as well. What...
The advancement of technology has seen a development of new ideas and methods to handle a particular problem facing the society. Technology has made work more effective and easy for the achievement of goals set by a particular organization. In the transport industry, there has been a significant improvement...
Losing the feeling of touch is just as terrible as any of the worst losses one can possibly imagine. Scientists have recently invented a brand new robotic hand which, when connected directly in a man’s brain, allowed the paralysed man to feel once more. Designed by John Hopkins University’s...
This is probably as good as it gets with prosthetic limbs and hands. Latest developments in neuroprosthetics allow the implantation of electrodes that mimic not just the movement but also enhanced control and sense of touch. These two neuroprosthesis instill the ability to recognize sensation as well as redesign...
