The creator of the original PlayStation console is back to make new machines, though they probably aren’t what you’d expect. Ken Kutaragi has moved from video games to robots, and he aims to help human workers with factory jobs.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Kutaragi explained that as CEO of Ascent Robotics, a company founded in 2016, he is not receiving a salary and wants to solve problems caused by the pandemic.

“The COVID-19 outbreak has turned the old argument about robots taking our jobs on its head,” he said. “It’s pretty clear now that if we want to arrive at a new normal, we need more and more robots in our daily lives.”

Increased automation has certainly been a concern across numerous industries, with machines taking the place of cashiers, assembly workers, and even cooks. With the pandemic putting peoples’ lives at risk, however, at least a temporary increase in automation

The Australian National University (ANU) and Optus announced on Thursday the pair would attempt to develop a national system to detect and extinguish fires using a mixture of satellites, drones, and robotics.

The first step of the program, which is due to run until 2024, will be to create an “autonomous ground-based and aerial fire detection system”.

It will begin with the trial of long-range infra-red sensor cameras placed on towers in fire-prone areas in the ACT, which will allow the ACT Rural Fire Service (RFS) to monitor and identify bushfires.

The long-term goal, though, is to put out fires using drones.

“We hope to develop a system that can locate a fire within the first few minutes of ignition and extinguish it soon afterwards,” ANU vice-chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt

Is your teenager the kind who loves tinkering with gadgets, trying to figure what makes them tick? Is he/she a whiz at math and science and dreams of becoming an engineer or scientist? It’s time to think enrolling in a about robotics camp and/or programming camp.

What will computer science camps teach my child?

Robotics camps are all about designing, building and programming robots, and testing them through a series of design challenges. Your child learns about technical stuff such as locomotion, gear ratios and energy during the process of robot construction.

Highly qualified counselors guide your child through problem-solving, research and basic – advanced engineering concepts. Campers are introduced to the latest concepts in computing technologies and engineering design through web programming, Alice programming, component-based robot construction and robotics programming.

Most computer science camps assign a full blown project to individual campers, which they get to take home. The … Read More
