SUNY State-wide Colleges ​new advances in artificial intelligence will only make these systems smarter in the future dancing robots can work together to build cars software and hardware in this field are advancing rapidly this surgical robot could transform how doctor is diagnosed and eventually treat lung cancer vetoes your answer for being mobile and walking around the future urban landscape without grabbing four car keys these eyes in the sky have become force multipliers for public safety agencies that carry out search and rescue operations [Music] a factory in Spain is demonstrating how thousands of dancing robots can work together to build cars the automaker seat uses about 2,000 robots to build each of its cars and a Barcelona Factory the robots linked together to ensure a new car is built every 68 seconds the company's also has hundreds of employees at the factory to ensure that everything runs put it to music as pretty cool this surgical robot could transform how doctors diagnose and eventually treat lung cancer or as health a start-up in Redwood City California developed a robot to perform endoscopy a procedure that allows doctors to look inside the patient's body using a microscopic camera attached to a tubular device the robot called the monarch system features an endoscope that extends like a telescope through a patient's narrow Airways physicians can maneuver it with an Xbox inspired controller computer assisted visualizations help doctors guide the endoscope precisely where it's needed this is definitely not the first application of Robotics to endoscopy but our endoscopes are able to navigate further into the body than traditional endoscopes can and because they're telescoping because we have the additional degrees of freedom with respect to how they articulate you have direct visualization precision and control very far into the body right now the monarch system is being used to help diagnose lung cancer at the earliest possible stage we chose to focus on lung cancer first and foremost because today when lung cancer is diagnosed it's often diagnosed at a late stage this five-year survival rate is actually less than 20% when you look at those patients who are diagnosed earlier that number jumps considerably to over fifty percent survival rate at five years eventually this robot could go beyond diagnosis and actually perform surgery our ambition is definitely to be able to both diagnose and treat lung cancer in a single setting one day that's ultimately the holy grail for patients who have abnormalities in the lawn the monarch system attained FDA approval in March to diagnose lung disease so don't be surprised if it becomes a common sight in a hospital soon we think that the technology is going to do two things ultimately improve patient quality of life and extend it wherever possible so tell me what is Gina so Gina is the personal mobile carrier and it's gonna follow you on the go so Gina holds 45 pounds on the inside so whether you are going to be going to the grocery store the farmers market or you're just an elderly person who has arthritis Cheeta is your answer for being mobile and walking around the future urban landscape without grabbing for car keys so it's really simple so you just stand in front of cheetah and you want to press the center button and Gina will sing to you it'll basically track your legs so it's so amazing about cheetah is I don't need to teach you how to walk it just intuitively moves with you however you move yes and what's great is you can also operate cheetah with the lid open so if I put all my bags inside and they stack up I can leave the grocery store even with them stacked up so G does not on scale yet it goes on sale early next year and at that point we'll be announcing price things that you can expect in the order of a couple of thousand dollars so we really think about G des and enable that device our whole goal is to help people actually walk bike skate and move more and really think about this is an external trunk so you can do that yeah but didn't need a flat surface good question so Gina operates on a couple different types of terrain so what we're on now which is basically concrete it can move on any flat surface that's pretty much not mud or sand so nothing sort of slippery but everything else works yeah but if you're taking it out in the street if those stairs if there is little you know things you have to climb up G decant you're gonna have to pick up the device right so Gina can go up a small curve or it can go at a at the sidewalk when you have the kind of break when you cross the street it can go there as well but it doesn't do stairs yeah so can I test it out yes definitely so you want to stand in front and then tap the center button so you see how it should meet a little bit that's how it lets you know that it's st. yeah what about you me a little bit it'll move it's also moving Judis really good so far okay what about people kitchen you came up with kids in here definitely not safe till your kids falling behind you all right - and how soon do you think consumers can get this so

we're gonna be on the market early next year we on a production run that's occurring now and so you can expect it to see out in your cities early next year on the rooftop of the Colorado Convention Center Canada's ariane labs shows off its Skyranger r 60 an unmanned aerial vehicle whose onboard cameras provide operators with almost x-ray vision you can search for individuals or surveillance on vehicles that sort of thing from say a thousand feet away use the daytime camera to see things like clothing and movement as well as the infrared camera to search for heat signatures these eyes in the sky have become force multipliers for public safety agencies that carry out search and rescue operations fight fires and do accident reconstruction there's a huge demand as there is for unmanned systems of all kinds according to the organizer of exponential the show that recently gathered a host of drones robots and seeing land-based autonomous technology in one spot there's a reason why we use the word exponential it's advancing very very quickly Brian win the CEO of the Association for unmanned vehicle systems international says software and hardware in this field are advancing rapidly it's getting smaller it's getting faster and you see that in the capability of the vehicles that are here and also the data that gets collected for example the Chinese firms an attack has developed a hand launch vehicle it claims can stay in the air twice as long as its competitors the endurance and a weight of payloads is basically a two key point or future development of UAVs United aircraft technologies unmanned helicopter also built in China will carry heavy payloads for long distances as it performs a variety of roles first there's monitor national disaster relief and then like geographically mapping put oil and gas industries oh there's just tons of ways drones in some ways have gone mainstream customers see them as much cheaper and more effective tools for surveying than helicopters the public has also begun to buy in I think it's getting people to understand that we've been automating things for a long time this is in some ways the next step it's sort of like any other new technology it takes a little while for people to figure out how to use it Ariana's Richard Cunha says new advances and artificial intelligence will only make these systems smarter in the future allowing those who employ them to concentrate on their other tasks at hand they're using them as a tool not their entire focus or reason for being Wynn estimates the air portion of the unmanned industry will create 83 billion dollars in global economic value in the next decade it's evolution this revolution shows no signs of stopping according to a report by Bloomberg the Pentagon is investing roughly a billion dollars on a development of robots to be used in a variety of roles alongside combat troops while the US military already uses robots to perform things like bomb disposal and scouting the new wave of robots will reportedly perform more complex roles such as detecting hazardous chemicals carrying soldiers gear in carrying out complex reconnaissance Brian McVeigh the Army's project manager for force protection told Bloomberg he has no doubt there will be robots in every army formation within 5 years is it a watch is it a camera is it a tiny robot sent to spy on you meet Nick see the drone camera you wear on your wrist here to tell us more about it is Nick C founder and see yo Christophe Kostal Christophe thanks very much for being here thanks so give me a better idea of how this works what you created it for have been developed to take pictures of what you see but the need often is much more that he actually take pictures of what you're doing and when you're out there having adventures when you are when you are around with your family you want to capture this moment with you in it and we finally want to give you a camera that is good for capturing this so what are the different kind of photography modes and options you have to kind of capture yourself in action so I mean it is Astro and it rests on your wrist and then you send it off and then it can take a picture of you or it can take a burst of pictures of you or you can also set it to take a short video of you which depending on what you like and when we were looking at the videos you guys have on your site you know you show people pictures of people rock climbing pictures of people doing things outdoors now you can be honest with me Kristoff did you just invent this so you can take more impressive selfies it's really not a selfie that you would just post on Facebook and then forget about it think much more about pictures of yourself that you like to frame that you like to put on your wall that you like would like to remember for a much much longer time this is a kind of picture you want to take with Nick see now clearly this is a little bit different from a lot of the other drones we see because it's wearable what are the challenges in making something like this that can actually attach to your wrist there are great challenges because in the end it has to fly so it has to be light it has to be well structured but we have proof-ofconcept experiments now that show that it is possible and now we go ahead and make the design nicer we make the user experience nicer but yeah it can be done and well one of the problems we see with these lighter devices is they can be kind of harder to stabilize may be harder to zoom in on the exact person you're trying to find how do you correct for that make sure you're shooting the right person oh yeah so we different algorithms one is inertial navigation so the drone exactly knows where it comes from and so it can turn around take a picture of you come back but the other more advanced version is you really have vision so basically the drone can detect where you are and take a picture of you and then come back alright Christophe what is the price point for something like this and when should we expect to actually be able to buy it we don't know exactly which set of sensors we will use for the strong so we

don't know exactly the price yet but it will give you more value than GoPro so we expect to sell it for bit more than a GoPro powered by artificial intelligence cars are beginning to divorce their drivers and move independently in recent years more and more self-driving cars are hitting the roads in China on the sidelines of the second world intelligence Congress held in China's northern city of Tian Jing a self-driving race has just concluded with 90 teams from home and abroad competing there any systems the competition focuses on mapping positioning decision making and security control on different kinds of roads after the fierce competition I got a chance to take a ride on one of the racing cars developed by Chinese automakers young link to see how good Chinese self-driving technology really is there were in the suburbs of Tian Jing and there aren't that many other cars on the roads we've come across two and so far it handled that very well most importantly it isn't making any sharp turns there's a radar sensor on the front and now that sense is very important because if anything should jump in front of the car it will detect it and stop and then you've got the big sensor on the front which is also monitoring other conditions I think one of the biggest advantages of this car is you can just sit here you can play on your phone you can send an email you can talk to your work colleagues on the way to work it's very efficient it's almost like having your own personal driver I have to be honest it's it's quite a responsible driver soo-ji sure a young a I engineer from a start-up company which collaborates with automakers youngling told me why the car moves so steadily mojo certain bits Cali under the Sun conjure to see in our tent we're back to the genie important money is an urgency way such a bother you gotta see the options I see the intense competition is an example of China's enthusiasm towards self-driving technology over the past several years Chinese tech giants like by D and D D as well as automakers and universities have been constantly innovating in this sector think is very safe to say the China is clearly one of the world's leaders in connecting autonomous vehicles and what are the driving forces behind its development I think it's probably to do with critical mass the fact that China has a large population it means that innovation can be commercialized a lot lot quicker so by simply by numbers alone but also by having a very progressive and proactive attitude towards connected autonomous vehicles coming from central government down it has helped sort of stimulate and push and put the push the innovation forward a driverless world does seem quite attractive in David's vision our kids and grandkids may never need to learn how to drive this technology could single-handedly eliminate speeding and drunk driving meanwhile a smarter transportation system would also improve efficiency and stimulate economic growth however there are still many concerns and skepticism over the innovation being made in this field are we ready for a driverless society what challenges would it pose Scott McCormick president of connected vehicle trade association in the u.s. shares his concerns in transportation planning China is basically the only place that's building a lot of new roads and so they have the ability to take that into account the rest of the world we've had our roads for 50 years and are adding very few of them so we're looking at a condition of how do we retrofitted for structure to accommodate you know these changes for more than a century that has always been a clear-cut relationship between automobiles and drivers now with AI being a game changer autonomous cars will forever change that status quo taking us into the future Roy Raymond a sleep researcher who pioneered many of Apple sleep features such as nightshift has left the company first startup that focuses on tracking sleep the researcher joined Apple in 2014 to work on using mobile technology to improve sleep quality and to track sleep Raymond left the tech giant to head Sleep Core labs and told CNBC he was looking forward to working with fellow sleep professionals the sleep monitoring technology market is a huge opportunity for Apple and other tech companies according to the center of Disease Control and Prevention an estimated 50 to 70 million u.s. adults have sleep or wakefulness disorders there is a variety of new apps and devices for tracking sleep but Raymond says there's more to it than that it's not just about the duration but also the timing and consistency of Raymond said the bottom line the sleep monitoring technology market could be a big opportunity for tech companies [Music] SUNY Technology Colleges.
