Loebner Prize 2008
The 18th annual prestigious Loebner Prize for Artificial Intelligence will be hosted by the University of Reading on Sunday October 12, 2008.
Our Robot factory is currently producing Android bodies designed as theatrical hominoids. The first units are hand crafted. Since templates are being produced of each model, we anticipate production line assembly in the near future. Some units have been prototyped using automotive concepts of building wooden models, other models are fiberglass Future types will be upgraded using composite plastic, fiber glass, latex and aluminum for the structural body parts. Various skins are being contemplated from rigid to flexible. The design criteria depends upon the use of each particular android. Some will have communications, both vision and audio speech paths. The more expensive ones, the stars have Artificial intelligence as well as dynamic movement. The bit players may be similar to mannequins but more apparently alive. All will have the ability to upgrade as systems become more available.
September 26, 2007 A.D. Well it has been a very busy month in the robot factory. We went rapidly from our Zeta clone prototype, to the rigid Sara concept and now the flexible molds under consideration. We now have access to 8 axis controllers and are system engineering the artificial intelligence modules. All this while plying our other income producing avenues. My team of loyal technicians are daily coming up with creative ideas on how to either humanize our androids or to integrate them into human society.
We add product lines and links each day on our sites and have seen sales pick up on the internet.
SAMSUNG’S ARTIFICIAL HUMANS LOOK EERILY, WELL, HUMAN
Bit players at this time have a cost of materials and labor of several thousand dollars, while a star Will have a cost of 5 to 20 times that amount.
Since our background in renovations is so extensive, we intend to be your one stop consultant with a staff of trained technicians, in the design of your Robotic/Android sound stage.

Our First Robot Project 1977
NASA Robonaut Project
Three Laws of Robotics are a set of three rules written by Isaac Asimov, which almost all positronic robots appearing in his fiction must obey.
Thirty years ago, our Company, "Systems Marketing Corporation" built our first robot.
"F1" was a theatrical robot built of wood, aluminum and various electronics components was the hit of our rock opera, "The White Light Magic Show". The "Beast" sitting in front our house, looked like some robotic whale beached upon a dune. Supper came and went, while we speculated on how to turn our huge, unwieldy $15.00 investment into anything that could keep our enterprises together during the cold winter coming. "Let's build a robot, out of it" decided Georgine for the group.
While Patricia and Robert built the form of the robot, which was modeled after Patricia, Nigel stalked the streets hawking our prototype "Theatrical Robot" to the merchants of South Bend. The electronics consisted of an audio amplifier allowing two way speech path between the robot controller and the audience. The eyes consisted of an iris tube and neon emiter, which coupled with the speech made a compelling effect.
The right arm was partially articulated, and the body was covered with space angel clothing consisting of a flowing gown.
Several differant models were built over the years. "F2" survived until 1990 when Global Communications Group was born and later acquired Systems Marketing Corporations in 1993.
The focus of our present project, while still providing theatrical robots, will be to develop increasingly more complex robots. The early models had limited articulation, two way communications and the appearance of being human. The new models will incorporate upgraded articulation, complex task assignments, artificial intelligence as well as many novel anthropomorphic devices.
The positronic brain of science fiction stories is now fact, photons produced through positron/electron annihilation, appear to be coded in a quantum state. Photons carry information. Perhaps the brain should have been named the photonic brain instead of positronic brain.

A robot is a mechanical or virtual, artificial agent. It is usually an electromechanical system, which, by its appearance or movements, conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own. The word robot can refer to both physical and virtual software agents, but the latter are usually referred to as bots to differentiate.
OpenHRP (Open Architecture Humanoid Robotics Platform) is a software platform for humanoid robotics, and consists of a dynamics simulator, view(camera) simulator, motion controllers and motion planners of humanoid robots. OpenHRP has been developed by AIST, the University of Tokyo and MSTC.
This site is devoted to androids. An android is an anthropomorphic robot - i.e. a robot that looks like a human. Many android developers call their creations "humanoids" rather than androids.
Professor Ishiguro (r) stresses the importance of appearance in his robots Japanese scientists have unveiled the most human-looking robot yet - a "female" android named Repliee Q1Expo.
Honda as well as a few other well known industrial concerns have built very sophisticated huminoid, "mechanical man" appearing robots, that can climb stairs, work on projects and perform other tasks. These all require supervision either by human interface or software command. Robots are not at this time aware so they may be a cheap labor force not concerned by minimum wage, only the level of nutrients in their fuel cell.
HRP-2 is the final robotic platform for the Humanoid Robotics Project headed by the Manufacturing Science and Technology Center (MSTC), which are sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) through New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The total robotic system was designed and integrated by Kawada Industries, Inc. together with Humanoid Research Group of National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Yasukawa Electric Corporation provided the initial concept design for the arms and AIST 3D Vision Research Group and Shimizu Corporation provided the vision system.
Tokyo, Japan - Sony Corporation today announced the development of a prototype small biped entertainment robot "SDR-4X" that can adapt its performance to its environment and situations found in the home to further develop the possibility for a biped-walking robot. Richer communication with people can be realized by a variety of sensor systems, performance control software based on memory and learning, and a flexible biped walking mechanism.
Waseda University has been one of the leading research sites for anthropomorphic robots since the late Prof. Ichiro Kato and his colleagues started the WABOT Project in 1970. Since then, just about ten years, by integrating the latest key technologies, we have developed a variety of humanoid robots including WABOT-1 which is the first full-scale human-like robot made in 1973, the musician robot WABOT-2 in 1984, Hadaly-2 which works together with a human partner and the biped walking robot WABIAN in 1997. Not only a lot of fundamental technology was created but also the many talented engineers and scientists were nurtured from these activities.
Avoiding flighty anthropomorphism, you can consider Cog to be a set of sensors and actuators which tries to approximate the sensory and motor dynamics of a human body. Except for legs and a flexible spine, the major degrees of motor freedom in the trunk, head, and arms are all there. Sight exists, in the form of video cameras. Hearing and touch are on the drawing board. Proprioception in the form of joint position and torque is already in place; a vestibular system is on the way. Hands are being built as you read this, and a system for vocalization is also in the works. Cog is a single hardware platform which seeks to bring together each of the many subfields of Artificial Intelligence into one unified, coherent, functional whole.
Although robots seem to possess fantastic skills in science fiction movies, it would surprise many people to learn howmuch still needs to be done to endow today's service robots with the ability to do relatively simple tasks. One of the most challenging problems is that of giving the robot an understanding of how to interact with human beings. The interaction between two people is natural since they understand each other, in contrast to the interaction between a robot and a person. One research focus of the Center for intelligent Systems' laboratories is on the development of improved human-robot interaction (HRI) techniques, both for sophisticated humanoid robots as well as for mobile robots.
The Shadow Robot uses a wooden skeletal frame on which the muscles and equipment are mounted. In the early stages of development using wood proved to be cost effective and very strong. Maple proved to be the ideal choice because of its fine consistency, which is easily machined.
It is possible to build a computer-driven, life-size, android robot head (Figure 1) for cost of materials of about $600.00. The android head will have two color video-camera eyes with the video going both into a window on the PC and into an image processing Java application. The robot will have six servo motors controlling: (1) base of the head spins, (2,3) each eye moves left/right, (4) both eyes move up/down, (5,6) each eye-lid opens/closes. All servo motors are controlled via a Perl/Tk application. The user supplies the computer (PC). The details of how to construct such a head follows, based on the authors creation of Robot Maxamilian, R. Max for short.
Here is a head made of Wal Mart Halloween skull, transparant mask and wig we put together for around $15.00. The head has built in led lights.

This list of fictional robots and androids is a chronological list, categorised by medium. It includes all depictions of robots, androids and gynoids in literature, television, and cinema; however, robots that have appeared in more than one form of media are not necessarily listed in each of those media. This list is intended for all fictional computers which are described as existing in a human like or mobile form. It shows how the concept has developed in the human imagination through history.
Our 1977 project used a control system that consisted of a control hardwire that was 100 feet (30.7 meters), providing duplex communications with the human supervisor. Our premier protypes for the twenty first century will use 3-Com wireless systems that will interface our artificial intelligence computers. Since we have previous experience with Beowulf cluster supercomputers running linux, this may be a first stage area until we can obtain Quantum computers. A human supervisor may or may not accompany the AI computer as situation warrants. We call our supervisors "guardian angels"

A control system can be thought of as a vast autonomous robot that can be overridden to varying degrees by human operators. But they are designed such that they respond correctly (hopefully) without human intervention. The system must do the right thing when shit strikes fans (loss of inputs and outputs, fires, chemical explosions, nuclear melt-down, that kind of thing) even when information is incomplete and the exact nature of the failure is unanticipated by the programmers. The interesting thing about control systems is that they are too complex to be understood in their entirety, firstly because their environment can never be completely modeled and secondly because of the staggering number of possible interactions between the many lines of software code and hardware components. These systems need to be autonomous and have always been designed that way from the ground up: they are immobots and they are doing much of the work that people used to do, and more.

Touch Bionics, major US clinics fitting patients with breakthrough new prosthesis - Veterans of Iraq conflict among first to receive i-LIMB Hand. EDINBURGH, U.K. ï¿½ July 17, 2007 ï¿½ Touch Bionics, developer of the worldï¿½s first commercially available bionic hand, today announced that its i-LIMB Hand and ProDigits partial hand prostheses are now generally available and have been successfully fitted to a significant number of patients across the United States and in Europe. Touch Bionicsï¿½ i-LIMB Hand looks and acts like a real human hand and is the worldï¿½s first widely available prosthetic device with five individually powered digits. In another industry first, Touch Bionicsï¿½ ProDigits product is adapted for patients who have a partial hand, due either to congenitally missing fingers or fingers lost through an accident. Partial hand is an area of prosthetics that has been without suitable powered products in the past. The i-LIMB Hand and ProDigits will be formally unveiled later this month at the 12th World Congress of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics in Vancouver, Canada. But

Types of Fuel Cells Fuel cells are classified primarily by the kind of electrolyte they employ. This determines the kind of chemical reactions that take place in the cell, the kind of catalysts required, the temperature range in which the cell operates, the fuel required, and other factors. These characteristics, in turn, affect the applications for which these cells are most suitable. There are several types of fuel cells currently under development, each with its own advantages, limitations, and potential applications.
