As the number of humans on earth continues to grow beyond 7 billion, humanity must also expand its ability to feed the population. Agriculture technology is striving to meet these needs by making effective use of emerging technologies. Artificial...
Drones have made significant progress in helping to automate tasks that have traditionally required significant man-hours to complete. Drones are gaining efficiency in collision avoidance and navigation through the use of machine vision. Swarm drone intelligence is helping to...
Governments are notorious for developing high-tech solutions on one end of the spectrum and lagging behind on widespread adoption on the other. With an influx of major technological disruptions in recent years, governments are picking up the pace to...
  Blockchain has been touted for its usefulness in boosting the efficiency of supply chain and industry alike. On November 25, 2015, Wal-Mart applied for a patent on “Unmanned Aerial Delivery to Secure Location” which was published by the U.S....

Over the past couple of decades, we have seen huge changes in the way retail works. Sure, we still exchange cash for goods, but practically every other aspect of the process has changed. No longer are we handing over...
Robots have recently developed increasing forms of intelligence, gained the ability to see the world around them. In an upcoming publication of Advanced Materials, there is supposed to be a peer-reviewed publication regarding a 3D printed electric “skin” that...
Robotics is advancing the construction industry quickly--even beyond the bounds of earth. Because robots are more durable and accurate than humans, they can complete projects with an efficiency and safety factor that far exceeds the capacity of human labor...
