"Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?"

Elizabeth, thanks for the explanation. I just asked about it in general.

To my understanding, Mydesign, Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?

"You're welcome, Mydesign. So does this then limit the robot's ability to "see" and react to situations? I imagine there is other technology that is allowing the robot to be adaptive."

Elizabeth, according to your knowledge which are these other technologies?

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
