AI upgrade from MIT, Northeastern gets NASA robot ready for space
The Christian Science Monitor - 04/28/2016
NASA selected Northeastern University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology through a competitive process open to groups who participated in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Robotics Challenge.
“Frankly, we thought that it would be difficult to get both robots in Boston, but that says something about how big of a powerhouse Boston is in robotics,” Taskin Padir, an associate professor of engineering and a principal investigator at Northeastern University, said in a phone interview with The Christian Science Monitor. “It’s a big deal. We’re very happy and the students are excited.”
