Big Advances in Tiny Robots

Image for post

The early years of robotics in the 1970’s and 80’s hinted at the very large with humanoid robot workers populating discrete automated factories. Robots were going to be man-sized and would carry out all of those tasks that we as humans either couldn't – or didn't want to do. – and life was going to be one long vacation. But robotics took a different turn and rather than go for the very large, miniaturization became a factor, and designers saw applications where very small – even nanoscale – robots were envisioned. Today, nanobots are a huge industry and subject to massive amounts of research. Because of the medical implications with having robots which can actually survive and operate within the human body, it is an area that is receiving a lot of attention.

The study found that the positive posts brought about a happy psychological atmosphere, while the negative ones lead to unhappiness in the readers. This further proves that the moods of the online users are contagious and fluid.

Image for post

Adrian Ludwig, Android’s Security chief, recently claimed that of all the processes available for installation, "less than an estimated 0.001% of app installations on Android are able to evade the system’s multi-layered defenses and cause harm to users." Android has a multi layered defense mechanism that is hard to penetrate. Despite this, malware concerns have arisen. In response to this, Android has, assured us that only Google is allowed to view the data that is procured upon installation and their security researchers do not allow for any malware threats.
