A new EU project has been recently launched. The aim of the EU-funded ALMA project is to leverage AML properties to develop a new generation of interactive, human-centric machine learning systems. These systems are expected to reduce bias and prevent discrimination, remember what they know when they are taught something new, facilitate trust and reliability and integrate complex ethical constraints into human–artificial intelligence systems.
Over the past few years we have seen notable developments in ground (e.g. humanoids and rovers), aerial (e.g. drones) and underwater robotics (e.g. ROVs). Presently, however, we are on the verge of witnessing another defining technological development of high social and economic impact; BADGER, a new type of robot that will integrate a sensor and control unit able to perform autonomous underground navigation.
BADGER Horizon2020 project, coordinated by Professor Carlos Balaguer, from RoboticsLab of the University Carlos III of Madrid, was presented in the European Robotics Forum 2017 in Edinburgh as a Success Story of the European robotics research.
