To teach AI how to touch, Facebook creates a’soft and sensitive’ robot skin. In order to make the ‘Metaverse’ ultra-realistic, researchers at Meta (previously Facebook) have built a new type of artificial skin that will assist train AI how to touch and feel things. Facebook (now Meta) researchers have introduced a new type of robot’skin’ that they believe will allow AI to touch, feel, and grab objects. While AI is getting very adept at sight and hearing, due to a shortage of affordable sensors, touch has proven to be more difficult. Meta’s ‘ReSkin’ technology now generates ‘tactile’ data to assist…

Study Finds That Having Robotic Pets Can Help Dementia Patients Significantly. According to a new study, dementia patients benefit greatly from having a robot companion about them. According to NeuroScienceNews, a team of researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing discovered that dementia patients who interacted with a robotic cat showed substantial improvements in mood, cognition, and general behavior. The Mini Mental State Examination was used to evaluate cognition; the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Mood Scale was used to assess mood; and the Observed Emotion Rating Scale and the Cornell Scale for Depression in Dementia…

A ‘Thinking’ Robot Has Just Been Created—Here Are The Consequences. In popular culture, robots are nearly invariably shown as intelligent machines capable of making their own decisions. Engineers may have finally succeeded in making real-life ones do the same. According to The Independent, a team of Japanese scientists from the University of Tokyo has developed a “thinking” robot that can, among other things, navigate its way around obstacles using an artificial intelligence-powered “brain.” And, according to reports, the robot’s brain has lab-grown neurons that allow it to “think” its way around the environment. If the researchers are successful in getting…
