creatorfunding agency of robots both cute and scary, has now shown us that you can run, but you can’t hide. Meet the Cheetah, an ambulatory creation that has just set the record for robot landspeed at 18 mph. While it may look like it’s running backwards thanks to its morphology, rest assured that when it’s bearing down on you in a post-apocalyptic wasteland you won’t make the same mistake.
Considering that that fastest humans can sustain around 15 mph, maybe it’s time to start developing bullfighting skills?
In all seriousness, Darpa is pushing the envelope marvelously these days, and this creation is a true feat of genius in technology. They are frontrunners for “Best Government Research Arm of 2012” so far. And for now, at least Cheetah’s connected to those wires.

Live Translated Video Calling!
Looks like language barrier is breached. Vocre is launching live translation feature for their iOS video calling app. It works very much likes conversation mode in Google Translate that was launched last year but is designed for video calls rather than real life meetings.
Q:Bro , thanks for your blog , half of your blog will be on my presentation next week. I was wondering if you know any good examples or any advances of AI on medical fields ?
There is a lot of AI in medicine, mainly used for diagnosis and medical image processing. For example, diagnosis of pancreatic cancer (the one that killed Steve Jobs) from computed tomography imaging.
Among recent demos of AI in medical field the one in this video is perhaps the most spectacular.
There are a lot of hopes for future application of Watson in medicine. Here is the video about it I posted before:
Good luck with your presentation.
Q:Thank you so much for everything you post. I have a VERY VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT presentation about AI and you blog really helped!!
Glad it helped. I haven’t been updating AI blog for a while. You just inspired me to do it.
