It is pretty amazing to think about how far we’ve come with technology over the past three generations. Things our grandparents couldn’t even begin to imagine are now the things our children take for granted. With as far as we’ve come already, it can be hard to believe that we are just beginning to scratch the surface of what is possible going into the future.
Opportunities for our children to make a difference in the quality of our lives using new technology are boundless. In particular, the field of robotics and robotics engineering is exploding and will likely be a major draw for young talent in the coming years. Giving your child the opportunity to “nerd-out” in robotics is fun for them now, but it has a very real potential to lead them straight into a dream career as well. And what a better opportunity to reinforce those skills during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine!
Robotics is a ton of fun no matter what your background is in. If you are preparing your kiddo for their first robotics competition, here are some things to keep in mind.
We at RobotLAB understand the importance of doing something with your kids and keep them entertained during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine. That's why we want to share with you eleven STEM activities to do at home!
On behalf of everyone here at RobotLAB, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. Our focus is, as always, is on the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities.
The situation is changing rapidly, and the government has ordered a mandatory shut down of all business in San Francisco Bay Area effective Tuesday, March 17. The office will be closed but our personnel will be online working remotely.
Shipments will not be able to be picked up nor delivered at our locations till further notice.
Training and support calls can be performed as scheduled, we accept new training and support requests as well
To the extent we have inventory, our team is preparing your orders, so they will go out the moment the lock-down will be lifted
Support for fiscal deadlines for bids and other budgetary timelines (price quote requests, product demos, etc.) are all intact
We are available via email or phone for any of your questions or concerns during this challenging time.
There is no question this is a time of great uncertainty. While we don’t know exactly what the future may hold, we feel confident that by sticking together (6ft apart, after washing hands!) and supporting each other, we’ll emerge from this stronger than before.
We will resume normal operation, and speed up your order delivery when it’s safe to do so.
Thank you for your loyalty and dedication, we appreciate your business
We at RobotLAB know how scary it can be with the CoronaVirus out there. Please keep your tech clean at school or home and lower the chance of transferring the virus! Watch the following video and learn how to clean your robots properly!
The first thing to understand is that cognitive computing is part of artificial intelligence (AI), or a subset of artificial intelligence.
There are many definitions of AI, with many tech companies formulating their own definitions depending on what their aim is for AI.
There is plenty of discussion about the need for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills as the gateway to employment opportunities (and for employers, staffing requirements) in the artificial intelligence-enhanced economy ahead. A study released by the World Economic Forum shows that data-related jobs will be the most in demand within the next four to five years, along with AI and machine learning specialists.
There are many technical definitions for the term “smart cities,” but this one by Interesting Engineering puts it succinctly, so it’s clear: Smart cities use technology to better population’s living experiences, operating as one big data-driven ecosystem.
Data collection will be at the heart of the smart city. Data will be collected from residents, transport systems and other city infrastructure. The data will reveal patterns in behavior or inefficient use of resources and the aim is to use this information to improve the living conditions for citizens. Amongst other things, data collection will result in notifications on the best times and the best routes to travel, personal energy usage, etc. Let’s look at how urban data collection could affect education and benefit schools.
C3PO from “Star Wars.” HAL from “2001: A Space Odyssey.” “The Terminator.” And now Apple’s SIRI and Amazon’s Alexa. Artificial Intelligence has always been part of our collective imagination. But it’s now becoming part of our everyday lives.
Experts think artificial intelligence could help people do all sorts of things over the next couple of decades: power self-driving cars, cure cancer, and yes, transform K-12 education.
While the debate regarding how much screen time is appropriate for children rages on among educators, psychologists, and parents, it’s another emerging technology in the form of artificial intelligence and machine learning that is beginning to alter education tools and institutions and changing what the future might look like in education. It is expected that artificial intelligence in U.S. education will grow by 47.5% from 2017-2021 according to the Artificial Intelligence Market in the US Education Sector report. Even though most experts believe the critical presence of teachers is irreplaceable, there will be many changes to a teacher’s job and to educational best practices.
January 22, 2020 – London, UK – RobotLAB Inc., the award-winning educational robotics company, launched the industry-first AI LAB for education. The AI LAB is a turnkey solution built from multiple AI-Stations such as Smart Transportation, Smart Cities, Industry 4.0, Humanoid Robots, Space Exploration, Smart Farming, and other modular learning experiences designed to give students hands-on experience in every day’s Artificial Intelligence applications.
