What's up Doc?

No need to worry any longer about the surgeon's hand shaking during delicate brain surgery -- intelligent robots are set to take over.
The surgeon instructs the robot by marking a target and an approach path on the patient's scan. The robot carries a camera that automatically matches the scanner image to the position of the patient's head on the operating table.
"PathFinder is the first robot with the intelligence to map-read a patient's skull from a scanner image," said Patrick Finlay, Armstrong's managing director.

AudioGalaxy: towards a paying service?

AudioGalaxy, one of the most popular peer-to-peer systems on the Internet at the moment, has just launched a paid subscription service, "AudioGalaxy Gold". Although still far from an all-pay model, such as the one adopted by Napster, AudioGalaxy Gold would seem to mark a new phase in the development of this particular file-sharing system. The service offers an improved version of AudioGalaxy Satellite, servers dedicated to subscribers and is free from advertising. Subscriptions can be taken for 2, 6 or 12 months. The big unknown is the interest it will create among a public that is used to getting music on-line without having to pay anything at all.

Lucy's personal website

Lucy, the orang-utan robot baby, has now its own "personal" web site. Lucy was conceived in May 2000 by Cyberlife Research (see the news), and researchers are now ready to start building the very large neural network that will tie its vision, hearing, voice, muscles and proprioceptors together to make Lucy into a complete organism.
Don't be fooled by its cute looks and stunning personality, though. Under its skin lies some pretty neat technology, and the primary objective - the design of its brain - is serious scientific and technologicaláresearch.
