Robots that can erect a home in two days
Artificial intelligence promises to optimise construction processes, reduce costs and improve safety. But how far can robots, exoskeletons, autonomous excavators and sensors actually go in achieving this?
Smart fabrics to make a second skin
Synthetic fibres that imitate human skin, fabrics that deliver medicine or repel viruses. The application of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, nanotechnology, semiconductor devices and even specialised software heralds a revolution in the textile industry that promises to change our daily lives.
Neural networks to anticipate large earthquakes
Predicting when and how seismic movements will occur on the Earth is one of the great aspirations of scientists. Technologies derived from artificial intelligence such as big data analysis or deep learning are beginning to provide clues about how to achieve this: neural networks or heat maps may be the key to predicting earthquakes.
California recruits robots and algorithms against megafires
MAKING ROBOTS MORE HUMAN AND MORE SOCIAL, THE GREAT CHALLENGE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
From intelligent machines to social machines. In addition to making advances in the development of artificial intelligence, or improving their humanoid appearance or ability to move, the science of robotics today has the added challenge of creating robots capable of gaining people's trust.
