LogiXperience - logistiek en supply chain LogiXperience: een ervaringWelkom op de website van LogiXperience: hét experience center op gebied van logistiek en supply chain. Een platform waar toegepaste kennis samenkomt met onderzoek, ontwikkeling en onderwijs. LogiXperience is het middelpunt van logistieke mogelijkheden. De interactieve demonstratie- en testruimtes vormen een geïntegreerde voorstelling van de logistieke keten: van bestelling tot en met distributie. Producten en diensten uit zowel supply chain management, transportmodaliteiten als warehousing en productie maken onderdeel uit van deze ervaring. LogiXperience - logistiek en supply chain

* At Google X, a Top-Secret Lab Dreaming Up the Future

It’s a place where your refrigerator could be connected to the Internet, so it could order groceries when they ran low. Your dinner plate could post to a social network what you’re eating. Your robot could go to the office while you stay home in your pajamas. And you could, perhaps, take an elevator to outer space. * At Google X, a Top-Secret Lab Dreaming Up the Future

* Google Builds Artificial Brain with Feline Recognition Algorithm... Who's Laughing Meow Awhile back, we talked about the kinds of metadata , we talked about why it's so important to write good metadata , and all that discussion coincided with our coverage of the metadata section of the YouTube Advertiser Playbook . The big reason why it's important to properly classify and describe your videos with actual words is that facial and speech recognition software isn't so good that it can tell you accurately, or with context, what a video is. Well, algorithms for facial recognition are getting a lot better, as a neural network built at Google learned to identify cats on YouTube...without knowing what a cat is. Google's highly secretive X lab, which is so secretive that people narrow its location down to "possibly the California Bay Area," built a neural network of 16,000 computers with 1 billion connections and let it browse YouTube. * Google Builds Artificial Brain with Feline Recognition Algorithm...

‘Green Brain’ project to create an autonomous flying robot with a honey bee brain - News releases - News ‘Green Brain’ project to create an autonomous flying robot with a honey bee brain - News releases - News Scientists at the Universities of Sheffield and Sussex are embarking on an ambitious project to produce the first accurate computer models of a honey bee brain in a bid to advance our understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how animals think. Honey Bee The team will build models of the systems in the brain that govern a honey bee's vision and sense of smell. Using this information, the researchers aim to create the first flying robot able to sense and act as autonomously as a bee, rather than just carry out a pre-programmed set of instructions.

A large scale European initiative to create robots that will co-exist and work together with humans RoboCom, which stands for Robot Companions for Citizens, proposes an unprecedented S&T Research Programme establishing a bridge between science and sustainable welfare and is designed to capitalize on the synergy resulting from the convergence of science and engineering, as reflected in the structure centred on five Pillars: Matter (Materials), Body (Morphological Computation), Brain (Simplexity), Mind (Sentience) and Society (Society, Ethics and Law). The RoboCom initiative is a unique federated multi-disciplinary endeavor to develop and deploy a new generation of robots, the Robot Companions, that will have a direct impact on European society and beyond. RoboCom is coordinated by Paolo Dario (the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna) and involves 96 principal investigators from 73 Institutions, from 24 EU Member States and Associate Countries.

Always being connected is something everyone takes for granted nowadays. Instantly, no matter where we are, we share ideas with other people out there. With permanent access to our e-mails, documents, calendar and other data. Record collections, photo albums, street maps – they’re all just a click away on our smartphone. And it is thanks to rapid innovation in information and communications technology (ICT) that it all works smoothly and reliably. Information, communication Information, communication
Biometrie: Schau mal, wer da guckt | Fraunhofer Biometrie: Schau mal, wer da guckt | Fraunhofer Interessiert blickt die junge Frau auf die Videowand. Die neuen Styles gefallen ihr ausnehmend gut. Wenig später betrachtet ein älterer Mann die neue Herrenkollektion. Wie von Zauberhand erscheinen auf der Wand immer die für den Betrachter richtigen Outfits. Möglich macht das ein Produkt der Firma Visapix. People Attract® basiert auf der Mimikerkennung Shore™ aus dem Fraunhofer-Institut für Integrierte Schaltungen IIS in Erlangen.
TU Delft Robotics Institute The institute unites all the university’s research in the field of robotics. The scientific challenge for the robotics institute is to get robots and humans to work together effectively in unstructured environments, and real settings. In the new institute both the ‘hard’ robot disciplines (mechatronics, embedded systems, control and AI) and the ‘soft’ robot sciences (human-machine interaction, user interaction, architecture, ethics and design) have a prominent presence. This joining of forces will give TU Delft a unique position in the combination of expertise, hereby placing TU Delft in the leading segment of robotics research.

How to build socially engaging robots and interactive technologies that provide people with long-term social and emotional support to help people live healthier lives, connect with others, and learn better. Robots are an intriguing technology that can straddle both the physical and social world of people. Inspired by animal and human behavior, our goal is to build capable robotic creatures with a "living" presence, and to gain a better understanding of how humans will interact with this new kind of technology. People will physically interact with them, communicate with them, understand them, and teach them, all in familiar human terms. Ultimately, such robots will possess the social savvy, physical adeptness, and everyday common sense to partake in people's daily lives in useful and rewarding ways.

Many universities around the world are working on the development of robots. In most cases independently, which means development takes longer, robots remain costly and products from different groups are incompatible. That’s why Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is today, 1 December 2011, starting the Robotic Open Platform (ROP), an open source system for robot hardware. The aim is for this to become a large plug and play library to which robot builders worldwide can add their designs or improve existing ones. The higher goal is to accelerate the development of applications such as care robots, and to make them much cheaper than they are at present. TU/e itself is making available the complete blueprints of its AMIGO care robot and the well known TU/e soccer robots. * Open source system for robot hardware to speed up robot development * Open source system for robot hardware to speed up robot development
Sioux heeft onlangs de ontwikkeling van de technische software van zorgrobot Rose afgerond. Mede dankzij deze software kan Rose intelligente thuiszorgtaken verrichten zoals eten in de magnetron doen, een pak melk pakken, een dienblad optillen of de tafel met een doek afnemen. Door toenemende vergrijzing stijgt de zorgvraag en tegelijkertijd is er een daling van het aantal zorgverleners. Technische innovatie kan een belangrijke rol spelen om deze impasse te doorbreken. Robot Rose (Remotely Operated SErvice robot) is het eindresultaat van het Pieken in de Delta project Tele-operated Service Robot (TSR). Het doel van dit project is de ontwikkeling van een op afstand bestuurbare robot voor thuiszorgtoepassingen. Sioux ontwikkelt technische software voor zorgrobot Rose - Nieuws -
