e385cf3745Group formed to support good AI.

Microsoft, Amazon, IBM, Google and Facebook announced the formation of the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society.  We do not see Apple and Tesla.

The group is going to work together on best practices  – important topics as ethics, privacy, transparency, bias, inclusiveness, and safety.

What would you like them to work on?

Stomach ache? Try an origami robot!

85“In this July 13, 2016 photo, a tiny “origami robot” floats, at right, towards a “wound” in a stomach model at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass. Steven Guitron, a mechanical engineering masters student, and others at MIT have developed these tiny ingestible robots which are “folded up” – hence the name – and swallowed in order to complete certain tasks within the body. So far they can be used to patch wounds, remove foreign objects, and even deliver medicine within the body. The robots unfold when ingested, and can be controlled by magnet forces outside of the body. (Elise Amendola/Associated Press)

High Tech Farming now includes Drones, GPS, ROBOTS and more, oh my!

Wow, just 100 years ago farming in the U.S. went from animal power…to  combustion engines!

However, these past 20 years global positioning system (GPS), electronic sensors and other new tools see farming well ensconced in technology.

What’s next?

Drones for Good!

54851-gimball

and this year’s winner is________!

Usually, that is for most drones, a tending to crash into stationary objects would be seen as, well, as a flaw in their design.

“Gimball” excels at this and just won the ‘drones for good award.’

Why do you think this would be an asset – an ideas?
