2. The rise of robots-as-a-service

Robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) is about to eat the world of work. While much of the attention in the world of automation technology has been focused on self-driving cars, many other markets traditionally dominated by human-in-the-loop solutions are reaching a point of inflection, enabling RaaS solutions to take over.

4. AI is changing the entire nature of compute

The world of computing, from chips to software to systems, is going to change dramatically in coming years as a result of the spread of machine learning. We may still refer to these computers as “Universal Turing Machines,” as we have for eighty years or more.

8. MIT develops tiny ‘walking’ motor that helps more complex robots self-assemble

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that robots of the future will be less “Wall-E” and more “Voltron meets ant swarm” – case in point, this new ambulatory motor created by MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld and his students at the school. The motor above is little more than a magnet and coil with some structural parts, but it can “walk” back and forth or make the gears of a more complicated machine move back and forth.

9. Big Data Is Dead. Long Live Big Data AI.

In December 2014, I asked whether we were at the beginning of “the end of the Hadoop bubble.” I kept updating my Hadoop bubble watch (here and here) through the much-hyped IPOs of Hortonworks and Cloudera.

10. With little training, machine-learning algorithms can uncover hidden scientific knowledge

Sure, computers can be used to play grandmaster-level chess (chess_computer), but can they make scientific discoveries? Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that an algorithm with no training in materials science can scan the text of millions of papers and uncover new scientific knowledge.
