“Doesn’t get bored, doesn’t get tired, works around the clock.” This robot researcher, developed by a team at the University of Liverpool, UK, can keep on working when human scientists can’t be in the lab. The technology is part of what the Royal Society of Chemistry has called a new digital age for science. The organisation says artificial intelligence and robotics will be vital in keeping research and development - including the search for coronavirus treatments - moving quickly at a time of social distancing, when fewer human scientists will be able to get back into their workplaces. #robot #robotics #ArtificialIntelligence #science #BBCNews

We love this. ❤️ Hundreds of socially-distanced hearts have started to appear in Bristol, UK. The idea was suggested by local businesses “to reopen the city in a safe, socially distanced manner.” More hearts are planned to appear in other parks and green spaces across the area soon.
