Startup company Ikkiworks has developed a companion robot to help soothe and monitor the vital signs of sick children while they are at home and away from hospital. The robot, called ‘ikki’, has been developed with input from staff, patients and their families at Westmead Children’s Hospital. Ikkiworks has been supported with a $25,000 Minimum … Continue reading Companion robot helps monitor sick children
Researchers from Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, have offered a glimpse into what the robots of the future could look like. In a paper published in Nature Machine Intelligence, CSIRO’s Active Integrated Matter Future Science Platform (AIM FSP) indicates robots could soon be taking their engineering cues from evolution. This concept, known as Multi-Level Evolution … Continue reading CSIRO researchers offer look at future of robots
