Discover and read the best of Twitter Threads about #robotics

Most recents (17)

We've been busy in the workshop but quiet on here for the last year. Here's a thread of what we've been up to:
Lots and lots of lift testing, mainly to get the chains reliable.
Most of the testing was with weights…
#robotwars #battlebots #robotcombat #robotics
Some of the testing was a deliberate 'jammed lift' (or lowering, in this case), to simulate what would happen if we got stuck.
We've also built a mock-opponent, dubbed Timb-awe, from an old packing crate. It’s about the size of an average UK heavyweight and we can add weights inside.
The score of Timb-awe vs Deadlock is about 10-1 :-(

AI has met a fork in the road; which path will dominate?

While pure #AI, or open API, will soon allow #robots to become more human-like, pragmatic AI is alive well today and driving true business transformation

Charlie Rose interviews…a robot?

What happens when Charlie Rose attempts to interview a #robot named "#Sophia" for his 60 Minutes report on #ArtificialIntelligence (#AI)

#ArtificialIntelligence positioned to be a game-changer

It might not be long before machines begin thinking for themselves -- creatively, independently, and sometimes with better judgment than a human

A thread on #cpp #state_machine #software_design.

Random ideas around writing an FSM library, with examples from, and motivations behind hfsm.dev, a header-only library created using #cpp template #metaprogramming with #gamedev, #embedded and #robotics in mind.
*Reuse vs reimplement*

State machines can be deceptively complex, and, unless a trivial one is needed, a reusable framework is highly recommended.

Rolling out one's own for special needs is ok.

Otherwise - pick from a variety of existing solutions from #boost, on #github, etc.
*Static vs dynamic structure*

The first important decision is whether the structure of FSM could be built/changed at runtime.

The implementation of a dynamic FSM relies on heap-allocated memory, resizable containers and pointers, all of which come at a steep perf price.

1/ The world is changing right in front of us; never before has change been as palpable. Most if it is being driven by technology which seems to be disrupting each and every domain. The obsession with technology driving progress to the exclusion of everything else is a bane.
2/ While it isn't a good idea to ignore technology, especially those that actually improve human life and condition, including those that make decisions faster and more accurate and those that make life safer and longer, one-sided technology growth will do more harm than good.
3/ Applying technology in context of people and environment must take precedence over speed and scale. Holistic design of solutions and services in individualized moulds is the path. Because the age of average is done and dusted. The factory model of #education must be disrupted.

Now reading the the #TopolReview report - Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future. It's an illuminating read topol.hee.nhs.uk #DigitalHealth
It's clear that a lot of effort has gone into the #TopolReview - it paints a glorious vision of what healthcare would look like over the next 20 years (for both staff and patients) - enabled by technology such as #genomics, #AI and #robotics
For me the #Topolreview has too narrow a focus. It's been commissioned by healthcare, yet we know that with an aging population, many people with long term conditions have to rely upon #socialcare as well. We need joined up thinking, imho.

Yesterday this gentleman on twitter broke my heart with his tweet and it launched me on my first tweetstorm. One of the most effective ways to show girls they are more than clever enough to be scientists and leaders is to show them role models doing it. Here goes... #girlsinstem

Fellow #Entrepreneurs, let's begin our #GlobalEChats on #healthcare and #technology!

RT and follow us to keep updated on our weekly topics as well to interact with only the latest of #startup news.
So 79% of you believe that in spite of exponential #technology advancement, humans are irreplaceable in healthcare and will continue to be its frontliners.

Let's also discuss #AI and #robots in healthcare 😁
But first, how has #tech change the face of #healthcare. Let's take a trip down memory lane!

Some of the #robotics you see in healthcare today range from the electronic thermometer to crucial #life support.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Someone labeled #QAnon a #conspiracytheory

It's not.

I can objectively show more than once what @realDonaldTrump was about to tweet before he did it and also show coordination between Q and the DOD, and Q and @JulianAssange.

Huge events are happening, it's time to awaken.
2) in addition, while it's still being uncovered, there are deeply coded messages within @realDonaldTrump tweets. The specific intentions behind all of this are many, but one vital one is to specifically prevent #conspiracytheories from being concocted.
3) Another reason disclosure is self evident, it's a public disclosure. It so happens that the disclosures are happening in a location where the user base is sufficiently #redpilled to accept the #truths -they are a bit tough to take for #normies
