Artificial Intelligence in Industry with Dan Faggella
Robots Have Feelings, Too - In Their Hands and Feet - with Researcher / Entrepreneur / MIT PhD Eduardo Torres-Jara

When most people comment on robots having feelings, they're talking about emotional intelligence. Eduardo Torres-Jara is talking about the sense of touch.

As he explains, touch is an often neglected robotic "sense," and it's a sense that we as humans are more likely to take for granted than sight or sound. Why does touch make for safer robots in the factory, or robotcs better able to walk upright? Find out in this week's podcast.

With a burning desire to combine his passions for digital fabrication, biology and computer science, Charles Fracchia came to MIT and Harvard eager to learn. Going to “bio to bits” (gleaning meaningful information from biological data) is something that Charles had never had an opportunity to do at such a high level, and he had high expectations. 

“I though: Oh, surely, I’m coming to these awesome labs here in Boston… I’m sure I’ll come in and have an awesome dashboard to work with, like the movie Iron Man. I’ll have my cell growth rate here, heart rate here… you know… something fantastic.”As it turns out, the technology some of the best labs are using to extract data from biology has – at least in some respects – stayed the safe for half a century. Charles was shocked “Then I’d get this blank look like… well… here’s your notebook and your timer.”
