Daniela Rus is in the news—a lot. In September, she was named the winner of the MassTLC Innovation Catalyst Award, an honor bestowed on individuals who are making an “exceptional impact on the Massachusetts technology ecosystem.” (She will be recognized at a celebration at Fenway Park on November 6.) Last week, she was selected to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI)—the first graduate-level, research-based AI university i...Learn More
It’s said that the more things change, the more they remain the same. That could certainly be said about the upcoming 2020 US presidential election. Just as it was in the last election cycle, healthcare remains the number-one voting concern for voters who see out-of-control drug prices, diminishing health-insurance benefits, and rising healthcare premiums as threats to their wallets—if not their livelihoods. Of course, there are no easy answers from a policy perspective. Every one of the ...Learn More
By Henrik Christensen, PhD, Qualcomm Chancellor’s Chair in Robot Systems, Director Contextual Robotics, UC San Diego; ROBO Global Strategic Advisor For years, the hype around artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace has centered around one thing: the potential impact on the human workforce.

Guest post by J.H. Cullum Clark, Director, Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative and an Adjunct Professor of Economics at SMU While it’s impossible to be certain about what artificial intelligence (AI) will mean for our economic future, history offers hints for what it may hold.

Artificial intelligence, virtual assistants, and humanoid robots took over the Superbowl this year in what seemed like a bot per commercial break. People certainly took notice in both the living space and the digital realm with commentary on the undeniable trend. These spots combined have racked up over 50 million views on Youtube alone - Amazon's attributing for 38 million of that thanks to its impressive celebrity lineup. From Pringle-lusting to beer-loving, it’s safe to say that brands ...Learn More
2018 has been quite a year for food-borne illnesses. What’s even more disturbing than the sharp rise in food safety investigations (the CDC has investigated a shocking 22 food safety investigations to date) is the fact that food safety could have—and, yes, should have—been dramatically improved with the help of the newest advancements in robotics, automation, and AI (RAAI). In an age when technology is better skilled than ever to improve food safety and keep us healthy, having more invest...Learn More
Bring on the robots... That’s the message from today’s Inner Circle expert. Once the realm of sci-fi movies, robots are now finding their way into every American industry. From brick-laying robots that build a house in a day to robotic brain surgeons that operate with sub-millimeter accuracy, robotic technologies will revolutionize our world the way the internet did nearly 20 years ago. And here’s the kicker… Rather than destroying jobs, robots will add millions of jobs and create tri...Learn More
The market may have taken a turn, but in the world of robotics and AI, the future remains glaringly bright.

It may be even better news for investors who have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the ideal time to dive in. Of course, even though it was widely anticipated, the latest dramatic dip in the market could easily cause even the most dedicated, long-term in...Learn More
You’ve heard it over and over again: No one wins in a trade war. As the trade war between the US and China continues to escalate, the tariffs and barriers on imported products threaten to slow business activity, create supply chain friction, and dampen international trade—not only between the two countries themselves, but around the globe. So, in a general sense, it’s true. No one wins a trade war. But robotics, automation, and AI—or RAAI—is notorious for breaking the rules. And whe...Learn More
