Swarm robotics is a technology to coordinate a large number of simple robots like insects, ants and other animals where swarm behaviour occurs. Such technologies are already applied in IoT, smart mobility, smart grids, Industry 4.0 and smart houses. Swarms of cyber-physical systems increase dynamics, connectivity, and complexity - calling for features like adaptability, scalability, robustness, and self-configuration - features that can be provided with nature-inspired swarm intelligence.
An overview of the recent efforts in Spiking Neural Networks, in both algorithm and hardware, addressing the limitations and advantages of spike-driven learning and computations.
Using technological alteration of the human body in order to enhance physical or mental capabilities is not a new concept however, it is often thought of as sci-fi. A new frontier in the field is cognetics: the use of robotics to study, restore and enhance human cognitive functions and consciousness.
Linking the human nervous system to computers is providing unprecedented control of artificial limbs and restoring lost sensory function. This talk will discuss the latest developments.
The first recorded case of a pedestrian fatality involving a self-driving car was reported in 2018. As AI continues to find its way into our daily lives, its interference with human rights is inevitable. Is our justice system ready?
