A Robot capable of telling the white from the black

An intelligent robot capable of accurately telling the white from the black has been developed in this capital of northeast China's Helongjiang Province. According to researchers, the receiver in the "brain" of the robot can recognize the black or white color in light of the intensity of signals reflected. The signal is changed to digits by the micro- computer installed in the robot's body and the walking device is controlled through integrated circuits.
Dr. Bao Qingshan with Harbin Poly-technical University, said that the new robot enjoys a great development potential. He and his colleagues plan to take it as a research platform to develop intelligent toys for children.

Peer-to-peer technology for Ford Motor

Ford has signed a deal with Oculus Technologies, a Boston-based startup, to use that company's peer-to-peer technology as a way to produce more fuel-efficient cars.
The Ford team will utilize Oculus CO to seamlessly connect geographically dispersed design team members working with different software applications, on disparate operating systems. This will allow Ford engineers to evaluate many more design iterations in a much shorter period of time.

Emotions detected by Computers

A computer, developed by scientists in Japan, can detect signs of a range of emotional states in the voices of users, including anger, fear and disgust.
To construct their emotionally sensitive computer, Dr John Nicholson and colleagues at ATR Research Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan, trained a neural network using 100 different speakers, who spoke to the computer using a large list of words with emotions ranging from surprise and joy to sadness and disgust.
In each case, the computer was told which emotion to associate with what it was hearing through its microphone. As training progressed, the computer became progressively better at linking emotion to the sound of the human voice. By the end of the training, the computer was able to sense the correct emotion about 50 per cent of the time, no matter who was speaking to it.

The Starbrain project

The aim of the Starbrain project is to build an artificial brain, which will control the behavior of a life-sized robotic cat. The brain will contain around 75 million artificial neurons, which live in a specially built, highly parallel computer. The kitten will be able to see, hear, and feel. Its behaviors (walking, playing with a ball etc.) will be remotely controlled by the artificial brain via a radio link. All of these behaviors will be evolved, rather than pre-programmed by a human operator.

Do you like telecommuting?

Sprint plans to make robots that allow telecommuters to have a physical presence in the office. "We want to put more reality into the virtual world," Sprint says. The robot - wireless videoconferencing units on wheels - will not sit at the sides of their teleworker partners, but rather represent them back at the office; robotic surrogates. Should the human half need to chat with the boss or a cubicle-bound co-worker, he will eschew the stifling options of telephone and e-mail in favor of asking his droid to wheel over to the target. A real-time video chat ensues.
You'll have to wait a few years for Sprint to bring them to market.
