Robot On A Book Shelf

The Women in Robotics network is putting together an open catalog of books related to robotics and technology. Whether you would like to share your own collection with the community, or you just want to find your next read or the perfect holiday season gift (let’s be honest, we all love robots, and we want everyone to love robots), this is a great place to start.

Current titles on the catalog include Frankenstein (Mary Shelley), Uncanny Valley: A Memoir (Anna Wiener) or Sex, Race, and Robots – How to Be Human in the Age of AI (Ayanna Howard). You can access the catalog through this link. And if you would like to contribute with a book suggestion, you can use this form to send it.

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun.
