RiveScript

RiveScript in Developers

The RiveScript Headquarters (RSHQ) is the community built around the development and standardization of RiveScript. While RiveScript itself was first created in 2005 as a Perl module, the RSHQ was started in January 2008 as a central place to coordinate the further development of RiveScript.

The scripting language, RiveScript, is used primarily in development of chatterbots and other conversational entities, as a more simplified (yet more powerful) alternative to the Artificial Intelligence Markup Language, AIML.

The RiveScript HQ not only serves as a central place for RiveScript development, but also offers resources for new bot programmers, or veteran bot programmers who want to migrate to RiveScript.

RoboCop (2014)

RoboCop (2014) in Robots in Movies

RoboCop is a 2014 American science fiction action film directed by José Padilha. It is a remake of the 1987 film of the same name and stars Joel Kinnaman in the title role, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson.

In 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of military "robot soldier" technology, supplying the US Military with mechanical men that are used overseas. OmniCorp wants to sell their products for use in civilian law enforcement in the United States but public opinion, embodied by the Dreyfus Act, prevents this. OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) asks his marketing team, in conjunction with scientist Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman), to create a new law enforcement product by combining man and machine that he believes can be "sold" to the American public. They begin looking for a permanently injured policeman to act as the core of their prototype. ~Wikipedia

Next time you play a computer at chess, think about the implications if you beat it. It could be a very sore loser! A new study reflects upon the growing need for autonomous technology, and suggests that humans should be very careful to prevent future systems from developing anti-social and potentially harmful behavior.

Simplicity is key to co-operative robots in Robotics News

Simplicity is key to co-operative robots
17 April 2014, 2:53 am

A way of making hundreds -- or even thousands -- of tiny robots cluster to carry out tasks without using any memory or processing power has been developed. Engineers have programmed extremely simple robots that are able to form a dense cluster without the need for complex computation, in a similar way to how a swarm of bees or a flock of birds is able to carry out tasks collectively.
