Robot’s debut in UK parliament invites ‘Maybot’ mockery

LONDON, United Kingdom--- A walking and talking robot appeared in Britain's parliament for the first time on Tuesday, prompting Twitter users to seize the chance to heap more mockery on Theresa May. The latest round of public amusement at the expense of the British premier came during a committee hearing on artificial intelligence (AI) and "the fourth industrial revolution". MPs on the education committee invited a robot named Pepper--- a white female creation with an excruciatingly thin waist and a tablet computer stuck to her chest--- to answer some basic questions. Asked whether humans would have a place in a brave new world where AI reigns supreme, Pepper responded in a reas...Keep on reading: Robot’s debut in UK parliament invites ‘Maybot’ mockery.....»»

WATCH: ISS’ first robot crew member glitches in demo video

The online debut of the International Space Station's first robotic crew member could have been smoother if it didn't start glitching halfway through the demo video. The European Space Agency (ESA) uploaded a demonstration video of the 3D-printed robot Cimon, which stands for Crew Interactive Mobile CompanioN, on Nov. 30 through its YouTube channel. It was meant to test out the robot's interactive capabilities with a human crew member. Astronaut Alexander Gerst supervised the test and also experienced first hand what may be the first robotic tantrum in space. The test started out routinely enough. Gerst powered up Cimon and began asking some simple questions. He then proceed...Keep on reading: WATCH: ISS’ first robot crew member glitches in demo video.....»»

It’s a girl! Japanese zoo invites public to name new baby giant panda

Have a knack for naming animals? A Japanese zoo is inviting the public to name its newest family member, a baby giant panda that recently made her public debut this month. Born at 10:32 p.m. on Aug. 14 at Adventure World in Shirahama, Wakayama prefecture in Japan, the baby is the smallest of all giant pandas born at the park, weighing in at 75 grams at birth. Too small to drink from her mother Rauhin's breast, the baby had to be fed breast milk from a pump, and was kept in an incubator but regularly returned to her mother. Her weight and body temperature have stabilized, and the pattern of her black and white fur has emerged. She is expected to open her eyes in the coming weeks...Keep on reading: It’s a girl!

PBA: He’s not even a rookie – Pringle on Bolick

NorthPort’s scoring leader Stanley Pringle was left in awe watching rookie Robert Bolick sink bucket after bucket. A lethal scorer during his college stint with San Beda University, Bolick debuted with 26 points Wednesday in the Batang Pier’s 117-91 rout of Blackwater in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at the Big Dome. Bolick was so comfortable with his debut run, Pringle thought he played like an experienced veteran.    “Oh man, he's not even a rookie,” said Pringle, who scored 21 points. “He's ready to go to work already.” Bolick started out hot, hitting 10 of the NorthPort’s first 18 points and shot a sensational 10-of-12 from the field. The three-time NCAA champion was perfect from the two-point field with a 7-of-7 clip, shot 3-of-5 from beyond the three-point arc and was 3-of-3 from the line. Bolick also posted three rebounds and three assists for an all-around game for the Batang Pier.        “He's gonna be key to our success, too,” added Pringle, who is set to receive the Scoring Champion award in the PBA Press Corps Awards on January 21. “When we play a tough team in the playoffs, he's not a rookie.” “I told him already, we need you to go to work, be out there, calling the plays, hitting big shots,” he added. “He's definitely gonna be key to our success, and our other young guys.” Bolick, definitely, did not disappoint.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

There's something noticeably missing in Jasmine Alkhaldi's medal collection from past Southeast Asian Games. And after amassing one silver and 11 bronze medals for the past three editions of the Games, the two-time Olympian thinks that the circumstances are ripe for her to finally nail that coveted gold. "I'm hoping that this will be my time," said Alkhaldi before officially kicking off her buildup for the 11-nation meet that Clark, Subic and Manila are hosting from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11. The 25-year-old will fly to Europe within the week and will stay there for a month for a two-leg training.
