Video Friday: ChatSpot – IEEE Spectrum


Video Friday is your weekly choice of superior robotics movies, collected by your pals at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally submit a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the following few months. Please ship us your occasions for inclusion.

IEEE SSRR 2023: 13–15 November 2023, FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN
Humanoids 2023: 12–14 December 2023, AUSTIN, TEXAS.
Cybathlon Challenges: 02 February 2024, ZURICH

Take pleasure in at present’s movies!

The method of getting Spot to speak with a character may be very cool, however that is additionally one thing that ought to be finished very fastidiously: Spot is a software, and though it might sound prefer it thinks and feels, it completely doesn’t. Simply one thing to remember as extra Spots (and different robots) make it out into the wild.

[ Boston Dynamics ]

Shhh. Be vewy, vewy quiet.

This video presents the exceptional capabilities of the TALOS robotic because it demonstrates agile and strong strolling utilizing Mannequin Predictive Management (MPC) references despatched to a Complete-Physique Inverse Dynamics (WBID) controller developed in collaboration with Dynamograde.

Dr. Hooman Samani from the Artistic Robotics Lab on the College of the Arts London writes, “The concept is to point out how robots may be past conventional use and contain extra folks in robotics reminiscent of artists as we do at our college. So we made this video to point out how a co-bot can be utilized as a DJ and other people and robots dance collectively to the robotic DJ in a robotic dance occasion!”

Future robots ought to carry out a number of and varied duties, as a substitute of easy pick-and-place operations. On this video, Dino Robotics demonstrates the functionalities of their software program resolution: it cooks a steak! Bon Appétit!

This video presents a novel perching and tilting aerial robotic for exact and versatile power-tool work on vertical partitions. The system was developed as a part of the AITHON ETH Zürich Bachelor scholar focus venture and introduced at IEEE IROS 2023. It combines a compact built-in perching drone design with a concrete drill’s heavy payload and response forces.

[ Paper ]

That is what very excessive precision, very helpful robotics appears like.

I by no means thought I’d write this sentence, however right here is a few video of a failing robotic mudskipper intercourse doll.

[ Nature ]

Good goal on this drone contemplating that its touchdown pad is rushing alongside at 20 knots.

[ AeroVironment ]

From the folks answerable for the large gundam in Japan comes this very large and really sluggish rideable quadruped factor.

[ Robotstart ]

RoboCup 2024 will likely be in Eindhoven in July!

[ RoboCup ]

A quick look into the 2023 IEEE RAS Summer time Faculty on Multi-Robotic Programs, which happened in July 2023 in Prague.

Lava caves on Mars and notably on the moon are usually not solely fascinating for exo-geologists and different house scientists, however in addition they could possibly be used as storage rooms and even habitats for future human settlements. The query is tips on how to entry and discover these big cavities beneath the lunar floor with out risking the lives of astronauts. That is the place robots, or slightly groups of robots, come into play.

[ DFKI ]

The rise of latest Basis fashions (and functions e.g. ChatGPT) provide an thrilling glimpse into the capabilities of huge deep networks educated on Web-scale information. On this speak, I’ll briefly focus on among the classes we’ve realized whereas scaling actual robotic information assortment, how we’ve been enthusiastic about Basis fashions, and the way we would bootstrap off of them (and modularity) to make our robots helpful sooner.
