What if a parent could feel safe allowing a drone to walk their child to the bus stop?

Robots working without human intervention? That might occur sooner than you think with a new avenue of artificial intelligence, being studied by Purdue University researchers, that creates brain-inspired computing to allow systems such as drones, vehicles and robots to operate without human intervention.

Drones - Commonplace - Federal - Aviation - Administration

Drones are going to become more commonplace. The Federal Aviation Administration reports that 420,000 of them will be in the air by 2021.

New research at Purdue's Center for Brain-inspired Computing Enabling Autonomous Intelligence, or C-BRIC, could direct drones and other robotic devices and machines to do even more through advanced artificial intelligence.

Research - Purdue - Leaps - Celebration - University

The research aligns with Purdue's giant leaps celebration, acknowledging the university's global advancements made in health, space, artificial intelligence and sustainability as part of Purdue's 150th anniversary. Those are the four themes of the yearlong celebration's Ideas Festival, designed to showcase Purdue as an intellectual center solving real-world issues.

"Our research is going to go far beyond the traditional concepts of artificial intelligence," said Kaushik...
