CSAIL director Daniela Rus, a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, hopes people will be able to use the system to incorporate robots that can help with everyday tasks, and that similar systems with rapid printing technologies will enable large-scale customization and production of robots.
The Seattle-based cybersecurity firm found major security flaws in industrial models sold by Universal Robots, a division of U.S. technology company Teradyne Inc. It also cited issues with consumer robots Pepper and NAO, which are manufactured by Japan’s Softbank Group Corp., and the Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 made by China-based UBTech Robotics. These vulnerabilities could allow the robots to be turned into surveillance devices, surreptitiously spying on their owners, or let them to be hijacked and used to physically harm people or damage property, the researchers wrote in a report...
Watch out, Rust Belt: The robots are coming. And they’re after one of the more precious resources in these beleaguered U.S. manufacturing hubs: jobs.
Typically, students work with robots that have been pre-programmed or program robots to undertake simple tasks for which the outcome is known. But a research project in Israel came up with a way for high schoolers and first-year engineering students to learn robot intelligence technologies by engaging them in teaching robots -- both physical and digital -- to learn.
Meant for girls ages 6 and up, the robot will help girls learn to see science, technology, engineering and math in a new light.SmartGurlz is a toy brand whose line of self-balancing robots and action dolls encourage young women to become programmers.
Most young people will be doing jobs in the future that currently do not exist, a top executive from one of the world's largest recruitment agencies has told CNBC.

Implementing the STEM curriculum at an early age is the way to go for Boeing South Carolina, a company executive told the Florence Rotary Club on Monday. In the nine years of Boeing South Carolina’s existence, it has 7,500 employees, and in five years half of the company’s engineers will be eligible to retire, said Tommy Preston, director of Boeing’s national strategy and government operations.
What could possibly get a bunch of elementary and middle schoolers excited about learning math, science and engineering during the middle of the summer break? Robots! Lots of robots. So that’s what Lipscomb University’s Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering and Nissan North America Inc. are bringing to more than 100 students this summer, including a group of 16 underserved middle schoolers selected through Youth Encouragement Services.
The technology that’s driving many STEM/STEAM and maker space programs is new, not just to students but to teachers as well. That’s why there are companies like WorkBench and Robots.education. When it comes to robotics, Robots.education is here to help teachers learn about robotics, learn how to teach robotics and how to engage students in robotics.
U.S officials will grant visas to a group of Afghan girls so they can participate in an international robotics competition after President Donald Trump intervened, a White House official said on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported. The reported stated White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the decision Wednesday, ending a saga that had sparked international backlash.
