DARPA Robots Learn to Grasp Objects and Carry Loads Over Rough Terrain

Researchers with DARPA’s Machine Common Sense (MCS) program demonstrated a series of improvements to robotic system performance over multiple experiments. Just as infants must learn from experience, MCS seeks to construct computational models that mimic the core domains of child cognition for objects (intuitive physics), agents (intentional actors), and places (spatial navigation). Using only simulated …

DARPA Progress to Robotic Navy Ships

DARPA is moving into Phase 2 of the No Manning Required Ship (NOMARS) program to develop a 210 ton robotic naval ship. In Phase 2, Serco will finalize ship design, build the ship, and work through a series of rigorous testing activities before taking it to sea for a three-month demonstration event. The first robotic …

Elon’s Real World AI is the Real World Technological Singularity

Ray Kurzweil predicted Technological Singularity nearly 20 years ago. Elon Musk could enable a world of economic abundance with real-world AI. Robotaxi and Teslabot will transform the world more than car and the first industrial revolution. The Technological Singularity is a predicted point when technological growth becomes radically faster. Real World AI would be general …

Tesla and SpaceX Unlimited Scenario – Gigafactories that Makes Gigafactories on Mars

I, Brian Wang, make the case and projects out what a hugely impactful development it would be for SpaceX and Tesla to develop a complete gigafactory with its supply chain and sending those to the moon and Mars and elsewhere. Those systems could have a one to two-year duplicating time. 40 years and two year …

Teslabot Abundance on Earth Will Mean Mars Abundance Too

Elon Musk has described a vision for a self-sustaining Mars City with 100k to 1 million people that would be hard on the pioneers to establish. He also has described a vision for Teslabots where it would be useful and perhaps there would be one per household. Brian Wang explores where SpaceX and Tesla and …

Elon Says FSD, Fully Reusable SpaceX Starship this Year and Teslabot Next Year

Elon expects a pretty good prototype Teslabot this year and a low volume production for Teslabot will start next year. Elon also says Full self-driving safer than human driving and the fully rapidly reusable orbital SpaceX Starship should happen this year. SOURCES- Dave Lee Investing Brian WangBrian Wang is a Futurist Thought Leader and a …
