The next time you order a meal from Uber Eats, it may be delivered by a robot -- at least if you live in Miami.
It’s no point getting frustrated with AI when it doesn’t do what we expect it to. Instead, we should focus on the ways it can help and support people.
«The idea that we’re dealing with a different kind of intelligence inspires us to leverage this technology to support people – rather than replacing them.»
Moscow incident occurred because child ‘violated’ safety rules by taking turn too quickly, says official
The MIT researcher says that for humans to flourish we must move beyond thinking of robots as potential future competitors
«So often we subconsciously compare robots to humans and AI to human intelligence. The comparison limits our imagination.»
Watching robots operate with speed and precision is always impressive, if not, at this point, always surprising. Sophisticated sensors and fast computing means that a powerful and agile robot, like a drone, that knows exactly where it is and exactly where it’s going can reliably move in highly dynam
The US scientists who created the first living robots say the life forms, known as xenobots, can now reproduce -- and in a way not seen in plants and animals.
The famed science fiction writer was wrong about a world government, but pretty close on robots. On computers, though ...
«The consequences of human irresponsibility in terms of waste and pollution will become more apparent and unbearable with time and again, attempts to deal with this will become more strenuous. It is to be hoped that by 2019, advances in technology will place tools in our hands that will help accelerate the process whereby the deterioration of the environment will be reversed.»
On January 1st, 2018, I made predictions about self driving cars, Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, and about progress in the space industry. Those predictions had dates attached to them…
Automation helped bring on the age of Trump. What will AI bring?
Will robots become self-aware? Will they have rights? Will they be in charge? Here are five scenarios from our future dominated by AI
Asimov's famous Three Laws of robotics are considered in the use case of self-driving cars, and found to be aspirational but not ironclad.

How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets 5 links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, add to reading list, save to «Made me smarter», «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
How many sources does Refind monitor?
We monitor 10k+ content sources on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
Which sources does Refind monitor in Robotics?
We monitor hundreds of sources in Robotics, including IEEE Spectrum, MIT Technology Review, Freethink, Mother Jones, MIT Sloan School of Management, and many more.
Who are the thought leaders in Robotics?
We follow dozens of thought leaders in Robotics, including Kate Darling, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), The Robot Report, Open Robotics, NCCR Robotics.
