University of Zurich researchers have demonstrated an autonomous drone that can detect and avoid fast-moving objects, thanks to event cameras equipped with smart pixels that work independently of each other. In other words, the pixels that detect no changes remain silent, while the ones that see a change in light intensity immediately transmit information, thus only a tiny fraction of the all pixels of the image will need to be processed by the onboard computer to greatly speed up computation speed.

It’s only a matter of time before humans welcome autonomous robotic pets into their homes, and the Samsung M-1 just might be the first. Rather than a normal head, it comes equipped with an interactive LED screen of sorts that can display various expressions and / or notifications. Since the central computing unit runs off an artificial intelligence system, it automatically learns new tasks and adapts to your lifestyle.
