    She?

    Somebody probably programmed the A.I. to say it want's to be referred as a she.

    Thanks for the links but all most of these simply talk about the same thing. A robotic arm swinging a blade around. While really cool shows no intelligence, only following a preset set of programs.

    I was hoping that you had links that would show A.I.

    The last link talks about more robots following a set of programs and executing commands much like following a flow chart. Again, no intelligence.

    I was looking for programs that showed individual thought. The ability to operate beyond it't original programming and to come up with new thoughts.

    I watched a video commercial on YouTube and I am unaware if it was a joke but they were thinking of A.I. controlling elevators in very tall buildings. Would they really chance any error in that because I would prefer not to ride in an elevator that you do not push a button to go up or down on your own or would the A.I. decide which floor would be best for you.

    I do not remember much but it was similar to: "At " " we are working to use advanced A.I. to control elevators". That's all I remember and I sat there with an odd look on my face wondering what this would actually be and how dangerous this could potentially be.

    Is advanced A.I. really necessary to control elevators or are people too lazy to press a button, it does not make sense at all. Maybe the advanced A.I. would figure the queue of different buttons pressed, such as "well if the elevator goes up for guy 1 then I could pick up guy 2 a little faster by passing on guy 3 instead", saving a valuable 10 - 20 seconds for the guy 2 and wasting a valuable 10 -20 seconds for guy 3.

    A.I. should be used in science to better understand things that humans cannot and spit out something no one ever imagined. Anything else seems to just make life easier for lazy people, I am already lazy enough. Alexa brush my teeth for me, make me an omelet, give me a massage and tuck me in, although sign me up for a Cherry 2000 pre-order.

    Army researchers test human-like robots

    Army researchers test human-like robots

    ADELPHI, Md. -- Army researchers recently tested ground robots performing military-style exercises, much like Soldier counterparts, at a robotics testing site in Pennsylvania recently as part of a 10-year research project designed to push the research boundaries in robotics and autonomy.

    RoMan, short for Robotic Manipulator, is a tracked robot that is easily recognized by its robotic arms and hands -- necessary appendages to remove heavy objects and other road debris from military vehicles' paths. What's harder to detect is the amount of effort that went into programming the robot to manipulate complex environments.

    The exercise was one of several recent integration events involving a decade of research led by scientists and engineers at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command's Army Research Laboratory who teamed with counterparts from the NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory, University of Washington, University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon University and General Dynamics Land Systems.

    As part of ARL's Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance, the work focused on state-of-the-art basic and applied research related to ground robotics technologies with an overarching goal of developing autonomy in support of manned-unmanned teaming. Research within the RCTA program serves as foundational research in support of future combat ground vehicles.

    The recent robot exercise was the culmination of research to develop a robot that reasons about unknown objects and their physical properties, and decides how to best interact with different objects to achieve a specific task.

    "Given a task like 'clear a path', the robot needs to identify potentially relevant objects, figure out how objects can be grasped by determining where and with what hand shape, and decide what type of interaction to use, whether that's lifting, moving, pushing or pulling to achieve its task," said CCDC ARL's Dr. Chad Kessens, Robotic Manipulation researcher.

    During the recent exercise, RoMan successfully completed such as multi-object debris clearing, dragging a heavy object (e.g., tree limb), and opening a container to remove a bag.

    Kessens said Soldier teammates are able to give verbal commands to the robot using natural human language in a scenario.

    "Planning and learning and their integration cut across all these problems. The ability of the robot to improve its performance over time and to adapt to new scenarios by building models on-the-fly while incorporating the power of model-based reasoning will be important to achieving the kinds of unstructured tasks we want to be able to do without putting Soldiers in harm's way," Kessens said.

    This work, and other research, will be showcased Oct. 17 at the RCTA's integration capstone event at Carnegie Mellon University's National Robotics Engineering Center in Pittsburgh.
