robots

Automation is entering all areas of our lives. Robotic mechanisms have long since replaced people on assembly lines in factories, which is extremely cost-effective. Robots don’t need a salary, food or vacation leave, only timely maintenance. These mechanisms solve many routine tasks at a higher speed and accuracy without getting tired. Robots are increasingly entering into our everyday lives as well, allowing us to spend less time on boring housework. Of course, certain models are still too expensive. For example, the robot dog from Boston Dynamics is still out of reach for the average person. And yet robot vacuum cleaners are no longer a surprise for anyone.

Robots equipped with tactile and visual object identification systems

For humans, it often takes one glance to make complex conclusions about the density, texture and weight of an object. The opposite is also true: after touching something with our eyes closed, we will instantly understand what it looks like. Robots are a different story. Scientists at the MIT Artificial Intelligence laboratory are hard at work trying to teach machines to effectively interact with the environment around them.
