Cassie the robot, invented at Oregon State University and produced by OSU spinout company Agility Robotics, has made history by traversing 5 kilometers, completing the route in just over 53 minutes. Cassie was developed under the direction of robotics professor Jonathan Hurst with a 16-month, $1 million grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. Since Cassie's introduction in 2017, OSU students funded by the National Science Foundation have been exploring machine learning options for theย robot. Cassie, the first bipedal robot to use machine learning to control a running gait on outdoor terrain, completed the...

A Little Robot That Cleans the Beach, One Butt at a Time An AI beach buggy named BeachBot has a very specific mission: cleaning up after smokers. ย  ย  No, it's not Wall-E.
