Another day, another task that there’s a robot for. Used to be that there was an app for everything. Now, it’s a robot.
MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has created AutoSaw, a system that lets non-experts customise items of furniture which can then be put together by robots. An entire system of robots, actually.
Using a combination of artificial intelligence and computer software, the system converts designs into numbers that are fed to specially programmed tools to execute. The video above offers a brief look at how the system works.
