Re: [SeattleRobotics] One step closer to terminators
- Interesting that Boston Dynamics are being told to give (at DARPA's expense)
five of those robots (or maybe ATLAS ones) to universities (?) for the
Presumably they'll also have to give away their s/w. AFAIK, Boston Dynamics
have never published anything about any of their algorithms. Of course, it's
their algorithms that make their robots so good.
If DARPA are using their Challenges to encourage development in robotics
then the algorithms will have to be published (as they largely were for the
Grand Challenge). I wonder what Boston Dynamics will think of that idea!
