A neglected statistical tool could help robots better understand the objects in the world around them.
Neurosurgeons, scientists and engineers have joined hands to devise maggot-like robots which would eat brain tumors and suck out cancerous cells which are hard to reach.
Invention paves the way for designs of efficient, biomimetic artificial muscles and contributes towards development of green robots
A recent University of Auckland study has measured the reactions to different degrees of humanlike features on a robot's display screen.
Robots can do a lot for us: they can explore space or cut our toenails. But do advances in robotics and artificial intelligence hold hidden threats? Three leaders in their fields answer questions about our relationships with robots.
