The purpose of this IAE Blog entry is to call your attention to some of today’s robots. I was amazed by some of the materials I read recently.
The talk and the videos all focus on robots being developed by Boston Dynamics, a company founded in 1992 by Marc Raibert, a MIT graduate. He is still the President of the company, although the company is currently owned by Japan's SoftBank Group. Japan is particularly concerned about providing personal health care for its aging population, and is exploring the use of robots as one possible approach to meeting this growing need.
