So, Where’s My Robot?

Thoughts on Social Machine Learning

Robots, standup and be counted

Every so often there’s a list categorizing robots, the top ten X robots.  Like this fun one that IEEE Spectrum recently did on humanoid robots, highlighting ASIMO and four more recently developed bots.

Alternatively, Heather Knight has been getting some press for the opposite kind of list.  Rather than a top-10 she’s doing a robot census at CMU.   Frank Tobe of the Robot Report also left some interesting stats in the comments, pointing to current robot usage numbers and projected future usage.

So far she’s tallied ~550 robots on campus, and is getting the word out to count robots more broadly.  So log in and count yer bots!
