New giant drones are strong enough to perform jobs such as cleaning wind turbines, fighting fires and even carrying people to safety. Some of the dirtiest, most dangerous jobs are being taken over by artificial intelligence, robots, and drones. Machines are slowly becoming man’s best friend, helping us do tough, risky, or menial tasks. Future drones will do more than just peruse the skies, surveying and filming. New innovations in drone technology show their potential to take on much larger tasks that benefit society in new ways. New giant drones are now capable of cleaning wind turbines, fighting fires, and even carrying people to safety. An innovative startup, Aeron, has built a giant drone equipped with 28 motors and 16 batteries. The stout prototypes can lift up to 400 pounds, potentially rescuing people from burning buildings. In a series of videos, the founders demonstrate how the new drones can manoeuvre with hoses to clean and de-ice wind turbines. These large quadcopters can manoeuvre alongside tall buildings, clean the windows, or put out a potential fire.The ambitious startup, backed by Y Combinator, is already getting orders from around the world to help clean and de-ice wind turbines. The greatest challenge for these new drones is sustaining power. Relying on battery only, these drones can only carry a load for about twelve minutes. For now, the drones are better off tethered and connected to a power source from the ground. As the capability of drones expands, the implications for abuse become more real, too. A drone that can rescue people from fires can also identify, locate, and displace a person for various reasons. Large drones of this nature could be used to protect property, locating and removing threats from private areas. Who will make the rules that govern how drones can and cannot be used? A large drone that fights fires can also fight insurrection, threaten protestors, or spray down mobs. In the eyes of authority, this could be seen as a good use for drones, to curb violence; however, the power could readily be abused. Government forces could use drones in an authoritarian, intimidating manner, threatening peaceful assembly, free speech, and democracy. Drones equipped with tear gas could help riot police disperse their opposition. Large drones could easily be used as a means of force to control others. (Related: Drone makers looking to expand into civilian law enforcement market as a replacement for police helicopters.) A giant drone that can operate hoses to clean wind turbines also has the capability to operate hoses to fumigate from overhead. If a city council declared that a vector-borne disease was threatening their community, they could deploy these large drones overhead to fumigate mosquitoes and ticks in certain areas. The residents of the city will have no control over the operation or the number of nervous system toxins that are being sprayed into the air. That same drone could be used to spray disinfectants over an area that has been declared an outbreak zone. Health officials, paying no mind to the consequences of spraying people with biological agents and other chemicals, could experiment with airborne flu vaccines to combat a declared flu outbreak. As drone capabilities expand, it won’t be long before authorities begin using the technology to their advantage. It will be much easier for authorities to carry out force if they can hide behind the technology.

This Terrifying Robot Wolf is protecting the crops of Japanese Farmers. For the last eight months, farms near Kisarazu City in Japan have been home to a horrifying robot wolf. But don’t worry; it wasn’t created to terrorize local residents (although, from the looks of the thing, it probably did). Its official name is “Super Monster Wolf, ” and engineers designed it to stop animals from eating farmers’ crops. In truth, the story of the robot wolf is more than a little sad. As Motherboard reports, wolves went extinct in Japan in the early 1800s. A state-sponsored eradication campaign. Now, parts of Japan are overrun with deer and wild boar. They love to feast on farmers’ rice and chestnut crops. Obviously, farmers do not love this. Fast forward 200 years and humans create a robotic wolf to replace the species they killed off. But there is some good here. The first official trial of the robot wolf just ended and surprised it was a resounding success. In fact, it was such a success that the wolf is entering mass production next month.

AI robots being fitted with special software that lets them adapt to injury like animals. It’s hard to believe that there once was a time when highly advanced robots only existed in Hollywood movies and comic books. Now, technology has reached a point where robots can do many things that human beings can do – in some cases, the two are even indistinguishable. An essay published in the International Journal of Science described an algorithm that has been specifically designed to allow robots to adapt to damage and ultimately reduce fragility. “Here we introduce an intelligent trial-and-error algorithm that allows robots to adapt to damage in less than two minutes in large search spaces without requiring self-diagnosis or pre-specified contingency plans, ” wrote the essay’s authors, Antoine Cully, Jeff Clune, Danesh Tarapore and Jean-Baptiste Mouret.

Researchers build a self-healing 'robot skin'. Puncture a hole, and the alloy will fill in the gap. Most conventional androids are fairly rigid, susceptible to damage and difficult to repair. However, scientists are determined to (literally) give them thicker skins. They've experimented with soft, deformable circuits that are flexible, and could reduce business expenses in the long term -- but are still prone to tearing and puncturing. The solution to these issues may lie in one recent advancement. A group of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have found a way to counter surface damage and electrical failure commonly observed in soft materials used in engineering robotic electronics. Like previous efforts, it involves a certain kind of polymer. To create a material that is both flexible and resistant to damage, Carmel Majidi and his team inserted liquid micro droplets of a gallium-indium based metal alloy into a soft, elastomer shell. Essentially, it's a solid-liquid hybrid that is stretchable, electrically insulating and capable of auto-repair even when damaged multiple times. Where most other self-healing soft electronics need exposure to heat, increased humidity or manual reassembly to get back to health, the metal-elastomer composite heals itself by forming new electrical pathways. Majidi says the inspiration behind the composite material comes from the nervous system's ability to regenerate itself. It isn't mimicking neuroplasticity entirely, though; while the metal-elastomer could be useful in wearable computing and inflatable airships to protect electrical wiring from potential damage, there's no such protection for mechanical or structural damage. That's the eventual aim -- creating a material which helps robots weather both electrical and structural defects and, like Astro Boy, interact with humans more safely.

Food delivery drones take flight in China. You don't have to wait for food delivery drones... if you live in the right part of China. Alibaba's online meal giant Ele.me has been cleared to use drones for delivering orders in Shanghai's Jinshan Industrial Park. The initiative won't deliver directly to your abode, but it will save you a lot of travel time: there are 17 routes, each of with two fixed drop-off points. Your food should arrive within 20 minutes, which isn't always possible with conventional cars slogging through traffic. Despite the automation, Ele.me believes this could be better for drivers. Humans would only need to cover about 15 percent of its routes and should lower operating costs in the process. Existing couriers could make up to five times more income, it claimed. This approach wouldn't likely work in primarily residential areas, so you could easily argue that Ele.me is taking a shortcut to put drones into service. At the same time, this underscores a few of the advantages Chinese companies have when introducing commercial delivery drones. The US is only just considering looser rules that would enable practical drone couriers, while a Made in China 2025 campaign is providing grants, investments and loans to help technological innovation in fields like this. The edge might not last for long, but it's hard not to look on with some envy as Shanghai residents receive their grub from above.
