It may come as a surprise, but for some, Ahmed Mohamed’s story — the high school student whose science project was mistaken for a bomb — is all too familiar. While we debate whether Ahmed would have been arrested if he were a nerdy white kid, it’s worth noting that adult scientists also face racial discrimination at borders and with police.

Fetch-DURUS

*updated* SoftBank today announced a $236 million investment into their robotics division by Alibaba and FoxConn for marketing and distribution, including Pepper and Fetch robots. Fetch Robotics has just announced a $20 million Series A round lead by SoftBank, on top of the earlier seed investments of $3 million from Shasta Ventures and O’Reilly Alpha Tech Ventures. Fetch is a mobile manipulator aimed at the logistics and warehouse industry. At the same time, SRI International and Sandia National Laboratory have been showing off their new humanoid robots at the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Expo. While DURUS is still a research robot, we can now see that useful humanoids have a pathway to commercialization.
