> Building an Internet for Robots
> The Internet has revolutionized how people produce, consume, and share information. Now imagine the same thing happening for robots. What if robots could access a worldwide open platform where they’d encode, exchange, and reuse knowledge to help each other accomplish complex tasks? That’s the goal of RoboEarth, an ambitious robotics project involving several universities and companies in Europe. IEEE Spectrum contributor Markus Waibel, a member of the project, describes how RoboEarth is working to build an “Internet for robots.” Is this how robots will finally get smarter—by learning not from us but rather from each other?
> David Hanson's New Robot Heads
> Roboticist David Hanson discusses his robots and his goal of creating software to enable “common sense reasoning and learning.”
> Robot Crawls on Power Line
