In this episode of National Geographic’s Year Million, the show takes on AI, robotics, and their impact on human society.
In this Engadget video, explore the future of famring, where robots do most of the work. Interestingly enough, the robots are already in the fields. You can imagine what these means for low-skill farm jobs.
In this video of a keynote presentation, Jeremy Gutsche dives into artificial intelligence and the AI mechanized future in an AI talk that explores how artificial intelligence trends will change your future, particularly as you combine innovation in AI with robotics, interface, bio enhancement, 3d printing, mind reading, sustainability and thought control.
I know that after my experience last week, that I am ready for a world of self-driving cars. Oddly enough, just last week, Waymo rolled out a driverless taxi service called Waymo One in Arizona. The company has been operating self-driving cars, occasionally without safety drivers behind the wheel, for about a year and half now.
The goal is to use all the data they have collected to make Waymo’s autonomous vehicles the safest drivers on the road. Andrew Hawkins from The Verge went down to Chandler, Arizona for a test ride.
Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as “smart” as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: “Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we’re building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values — or will they have values of their own?
I often dream of the day when I can put my car on auto-pilot and do something productive while I find myself stuck on the DC Beltway. To many, this technology seems far fetched, but Tesla owners have a little taste of the future.
In this Facebook livestream, Robert Scoble demonstrates the particulars of his Tesla in self-driving mode in the legendary traffic corridor of Silicon Valley and fields questions from the audience.
BBC Click goes to Japan to check out some of their cutting-edge work in robotics.
In this video by Singularity University, Peter Diamondis examines how the world is moving faster and faster everyday as well as why we haven’t seen anything yet.
CNET’s Lexy Savvides tried out an actual exoskeleton to see if it gave her super strength.
Imagine how transformative this type of technology can be to those with spinal injuries or people with limited movement due to other kinds of injuries.
BBC Click takes a look at the latest summer gadgets, goes on a VR waterslide adventure and even takes a hoverboard for a spin.
