6:24 PM | My Days as a Robot Whisperer

My desk was covered with papers, a glass of water, and a big shipping container. Even though my chair was there, I was sitting on the floor with my laptop, having a bad hair day, and a robot was seated next to me. This was a typical day at Maplesoft for an engineering co-op student.
For this project, at the request of my manager, I left my duties as Spanish translator and marketing assistant and I started to work with the robot NAO from Aldebaran Robotics. The purpose of this project was

Supponiamo di doverci confrontare con un animale, ad esempio un cane o un lupo (o più in generale con un animale, addomesticato o selvaggio). Secondo Konrad Lorenz il comportamento aggressivo di un cane viene influenzato da due stati d'animo differenti: l'ira e la paura.Si può allora provare a prevedere il comportamento del cane in funzione di quale dei due stati domina: nel caso in cui l'animale è dominato da paura o da ira, proporre una previsione è abbastanza semplice; nel caso in cui il […]

A new clue about the #quarkgluonplasma from @RHIC_STAR at @BrookhavenLabWithin the particles that constitute atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons, there are the quarks, the elementary particles with fractional charges, linked to each other thanks to the gluons, bosons that carry the nuclear interaction. Thanks to the gluons it is impossible to observe, at present, free quarks, but it is expected that in the very first stage of the universe, matter was in a state called quark-gluon plasma.
