An Autonomous Drone Just Beat a Professional Racing Pilot for the First Time

Unlike auto racing, in drone racing the pilots aren’t subjected to debilitating G-forces, which means the races can take place at impossibly fast speeds. So fast, in fact, that autonomous drones have always lagged behind those piloted by humans who benefit from split-second reflexes. But that’s no longer the case.Read more...

DARPA's Latest Defense Weapon Knocks Drones Out of the Sky Using Advanced... Confetti Streamers?

As drones become faster, smarter, and capable of carrying larger payloads across longer distances, they pose a genuine threat if leveraged as a weapon. As a result, militaries have been developing anti-drone countermeasures to knock them out of the sky, including a novel new approach that blasts them with streamers.Read more...

The Age of Autonomous Killer Robots May Already Be Here

A “lethal” weaponized drone “hunted down” and “remotely engaged” human targets without its handlers’ say-so during a conflict in Libya last year, according to a United Nations report first covered by New Scientist this week. Whether there were any casualties remains unclear, but if confirmed, it would likely be the…Read more...

Dutch startup QphoX raises €2M to connect Quantum computers with a Quantum modem

When eventually they become a working reality, Quantum computers won’t be of much value if they simply sit there on their own. Just like the internet, the value is in the network. But right now there’s scant technology to link these powerful devices together. That’s where QphoX comes in. Thus Dutch startup has raised €2 million to connect Quantum computers with a ‘Quantum modem’. The funding round was led by Quantonation, Speedinvest, and High-Tech Gründerfonds, with participation from TU Delft....

Orca AI, which puts computer vision onto cargo ships, raises $13M Series A funding

Tel Aviv’s Orca AI, a computer vision startup that can be retrofitted to cargo ships and improve navigation and collision avoidance, has raised $13 million in a Series A funding, taking its total raised to over $15.5 million. While most cargo ships carry security cameras, computer vision cameras are rare. Orca AI hopes its solution could introduce autonomous guidance to vessels already at sea. There are over 4,000 annual marine incidents, largely due to human error. The company says this is gett...

UK drone startup sees.ai gets go ahead to trial beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) flights

The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has given the go ahead to local startup sees.ai, which is developing a beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) command & control solution to aid data capture for industrial use-cases, to trial a concept for routine BVLOS operations — the first such authorization for a U.K. company, the regulator said today. The test is taking place under a sandbox program announced back in May 2019 — directing government funding and regulatory support to R&D in the drone space...

China’s Xpeng in the race to automate EVs with lidar

Elon Musk famously said any company relying on lidar is “doomed.” Tesla instead believes automated driving functions are built on visual recognition and is even working to remove the radar. China’s Xpeng begs to differ. Founded in 2014, Xpeng is one of China’s most celebrated electric vehicle startups and went public when it was just six years old. Like Tesla, Xpeng sees automation as an integral part of its strategy; unlike the American giant, Xpeng uses a combination of radar, cameras, high-pr...

IonQ now supports IBM’s Qiskit quantum development kit

IonQ, the trapped ion quantum computing company that recently went public via a SPAC, today announced that it is integrating its quantum computing platform with the open-source Qiskit software development kit. This means Qiskit users can now bring their programs to IonQ’s platform without any major modifications to their code. At first glance, that seems relatively unremarkable, but it’s worth noting that Qiskit was founded by IBM Research and is IBM’s default tool for working with its quantum c...

Experimental 3D Printer Offers a Clever Way to Eliminate Waste

One of the unique challenges of 3D printing is that models that feature structures hanging in mid-air, like the spout of a teapot, also need temporary structures to support the soft extruded plastic until it hardens. This can result in a lot of wasted material, because those supports are just discarded afterwards. A …Read more...
