Meet ATLAS!

#1  Postby DoctorE » Jul 12, 2013 9:35 pm

Say hello to ATLAS, one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built!

ATLAS was developed for DARPA by Boston Dynamics. Software-focused teams from Tracks B and C of the DARPA Robotics Challenge will use the robot to compete in the first physical competition of the Challenge in December 2013 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Boston Dynamics clip is from 2015 - the 2018 upgrade will be self-driving, no doubt.

Yeah, but can Boston Dynamics do this?

Nothing can end well with this, I thought...

Impressive job, but in HD it's immediately obvious that it's CGI, particularly the lighting/shadows and contact/movement of the feet with the ground. Need a much bigger budget and a lot more work to make it convincing. It just about passes in low resolution until they start making it do silly things. Also, not sure why they changed the design of the robot. The engineering looks wrong. How is the power and control supposed to be getting to the lower limbs through those hip joints? I mean, they could create robot that had independently powered and wirelessly controlled legs, but it would be an odd thing to do.

Compared with the multi-page staff list from the movie credits shown, I think these two guys might be on to something of more general applicability.

Not quite:

The series was centered on Boston but Massive Dynamic HQ was in NYC.
Why do you think that?

I guess not. My bro's new iPhone has in-built AI circuitry that has me doubting I can continue to answer his cosmology/astronomy questions without interruption for much longer. :doh:

Too late:
The first AI universe sim is fast and accurate and its creators don't know how it works


sciencedaily link

"We can run these simulations in a few milliseconds, while other 'fast' simulations take a couple of minutes," says study co-author Shirley Ho, a group leader at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics in New York City


I just thought that snippet incl. "Flatiron" would appeal...
