Hans Tappinar writes some lines of code on his laptop and hits back. A small robot next to the laptop looks like one of those stereos that appear in Pixar films.
It’s Cozmo, an artificially intelligent robot that was unveiled last month at San Francisco. One of the company’s founders, Tappiner, is doing a small automation program to do new things.
The software is simple because Cosmo knows that stacking blocks are considered simple but simple.
In the Tappeiner programming language, the Anki Group uses the newly unveiled software development toolkit from SDK, even the most green programmers can use to modify the behavior of the game robot.
The company claims that the SDK is the first of its kind: a group that allows anyone to program such a smart robot, a robot that recognizes faces and moves in the new environment and even imitates emotions Does too.
Mark Anderson, a well-known venture capitalist who led the $ 50 million NK financing round in 2013, is the company “the best robot company I have ever seen.” It may look strange when you think that Cozmo is a game, a $ 180 device that can be seen in the Christmas store, but it also keeps some truth.
When it comes to smart robots, Cozmo represents the latest.
Like so many people, they like great mobile robots created by Google Dynamics Inc., whose robots like robots are humanly attractive.
Tappeiner is surprised how long these robots will take before actually being useful.
“Does it make sense for us to make an agricultural robot or will it take 20 years to do it well?” He says, “We can do this,” shaking his head in the Cosmo “incredibly good”.
He believes that Cozmo can provide a seed for the future.
“When we were at the graduate school, you would have to pay $ 10,000 for the platform, in which 10 percent to 15 percent of Cosmo’s capabilities were,” said Inky Chief Executive Officer Boris Sophman.
The chief technology officer of the Open Source Robotics Foundation and long robotics researcher Nat Quinnig says that Cosmo deserves some skepticism.
“Any robot you can programming, is a basic level of emotional communication with someone, it’s a great research tool,” he says.
Do not we already have a lot of smart robots compared to this game? Not true.
In the commercial world, robots often work on assembly lines or transfer things through warehouses.
Inside the Amazon Delivery Center, Keva Robot raises a container and transmits it.
Yes, we move towards robots who can respond to their environment and learn to do new things on their own.
In a factory in Austin, Texas, IBM Watson delivers a robot to AI, which can understand and answer questions and requests in at least some cases.
Last year, the US Department of Defense’s research arm, DARPA, organized an expensive competition for smart robots.
Google is now using a technique called Learning Booster, which is one of the techniques that helps in running alpha go, a Google system that cracks the old go player, how robots have to capture random objects , To teach it.
In some ways, Cozmo is not at the forefront of robotics research.
If the kosmo reaches the edge of a table, then it can be scared.
Thanks to the new SDK, researchers can decide to connect COSMO with other AI engines, including deep nervous networks, it is likely that Thappner says that many can search for themselves.
Finally, as tools are improving, Robots like Cozmo will be able to use artificial intelligence such as artificial neural networks, without being in constant contact with large data centers in the cloud.
It is a branch of engineering science, which is not in existence without electronics, computer science, mechatronics, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.
Let’s talk a bit about history.
It is said that the first robot was designed in 1954 by George Devol.
It was called Unimate and was related to the development of artificial intelligence, which itself was patented by Devol in 1961.
But the history of robots is a journey before this.
As we all know, Leonardo Da Vinci was more than a painter.
He was an inventor, a military engineer, a mathematician, an engineer and a person who studied natural science.
Before working on “Last Supper”, he designed the first human robot.
It was approximately 1485.
By 1899, Nicholas Tesla developed a remote controlled boat.
Later, in the film “Metropolis”, Maria was the first robot to be screened.
Today, we can say that the first robot program for Deol can be programmed and operated digitally, today we all know that the path to the robot industry has been paved.
The use of robots is innumerable.
The use of robots has become so widespread that it can be difficult to determine what will come first.
