Member in the News: Edson Prestes joins Unesco's Ethics of Artificial Intelligence group

RAS - Tue, 04/14/2020 - 17:42

IEEE RAS Member and Volunteer Edson Prestes, Federal University of RioGrande do Sul, Brazil, has been invited by Audrey Azoulay, Unesco’s Director General, to join an international Ad Hoc Expert Group in charging of preparing a preliminary text for an international law on Ethics of Artificial Intelligence. This law will be the first global standard-setting instrument on ethics of artificial intelligence. This group is comprised of 24 of the world’s leading experts on the social, economic and cultural challenges of artificial intelligence. UNESCO decided to create this normative instrument during UNESCO’s General Conference in November 2019 and its goal is to have this law adopted by its Member States at the end of 2021. UNESCO has a long tradition on creating this kind of normative instruments. An example is Universal Declaration on the Human Genome and Human Rights, adopted in 1997.

The IEEE Transactions on Robotics invites submissions to a Special Issue on Resilience in Networked Robotic Systems

RAS - Tue, 04/14/2020 - 13:56

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have extended the submission deadline to: 15 June 2020

There is a substantive body of work on methods providing robustness to robotic systems, but research on resilience is scattered, and the distinction between resilience and robustness is still poorly understood. As a result, this special issue has two main goals: (1) to provide a deeper understanding of resilience for networked systems and (2) to assemble works that demonstrate the importance of resilient methods. In an effort to disseminate the current advances in designing and operating resilient robotic networks, and to stimulate a discussion on the future research directions in this field, the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) invites papers for a Special Issue in this area. Researchers are invited to submit papers on the foundational, algorithmic, and experimental aspects of design, modeling, control and validation of resilience in robotic networks.

Wanted: Thought Leaders on Robot Agility

RAS - Thu, 04/09/2020 - 17:48

The IEEE Standards Association under the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society has started a Study Group to investigate the feasibility of creating standards and performance metrics to measure robot agility, with the goal of enabling robots to be more productive, more autonomous, and to require less human interaction.

Agility in this context is broadly defined as addressing failure identification and recovery, automated planning to minimize up-front programming time, and enabling plug and play robots to allow for easier swapping of different robots without massive reprogramming downtime.

We expect this effort to address robot agility in a wide range of applications, such as manufacturing, healthcare, defense, and service robots.

How to get involved

If you are interested in being involved with this IEEE SA Study Group (and the future working group) and having the opportunity to shape the future of these efforts, please contact Anthony Downs at anthony.downs@nist.gov

Thanks to 'flexoskeletons,' these insect-inspired robots are faster and cheaper to make

Science Daily - Robotics - Thu, 04/09/2020 - 14:39
Engineers have developed a new method that doesn't require any special equipment and works in just minutes to create soft, flexible, 3D-printed robots. The structures were inspired by insect exoskeletons, which have both soft and rigid parts -- the researchers called their creations 'flexoskeletons.'
