Quotes

"'Tackling the Challenges of Big Data' gives a comprehensive overview of big data technologies" said Daniela Rus, the Andrew (1956) and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, director of CSAIL, and co-director of the...
...like high-pressure actuators and aluminum parts that hold everything together," said doctoral candidate Andrew Marchese, head of the design team. "Designing away all the hard components forces us to think about the more difficult questions. Is it possible to do useful manipulation with a robot that’s as soft as chewing gum?"
"I'm not saying that the world should be filled with robotic octopus tentacles on assembly lines," Marchese says. "I just want to challenge the notion that robots have to look or act a certain way."
...models today you can be one year from now," said Bill Aulet, managing director of the Trust Center, to students sitting in the back of the crowd. "You're going to see what you can be if you go to MIT."
