My internship experience at Invento – Part 2

Before I had taken up this internship at Invento Robotics, I had read about the Mitra robot after the GES 2017. I wondered how the developers would be working. I simply assumed that maybe a team of 150-200 highly skilled developers would be behind this product.  But, my first day at Invento took me by [...]

The origin of robots and its modern concepts

The robots we know today are machines built with a mind of their own - the artificial intelligence. By definition, they are machines programmed to make their own decisions in a given scenario. They do it with the help of Machine Learning, the ability of machines to learn and improvise by itself. Over the past [...]

Why don’t police in developed countries like Australia have sophisticated robots?

We are a few years away from that although a lot of work is going on to make that happen. Many police SWAT teams have already started using robots for reconnaissance in dangerous situations. (Mississippi State's CAVS Center helps Starkville police go high-tech with drones) In grad school, I was working on a similar topic. Here is [...]
