Cyberbotics Ltd. is launching https://robotbenchmark.net to allow everyone to program simulated robots online for free.

Robotbenchmark offers a series of robot programming challenges that address various topics across a wide range of difficulty levels, from middle school to PhD. Users don’t need to install any software on their computer, cloud-based 3D robotics simulations run on a web page. They can learn programming by writing Python code to control robot behavior. The performance achieved by users is recorded and displayed online, so that they can challenge their friends and show off their skills at robot programming on social networks. Everything is designed to be extremely easy-to-use, runs on any computer, any web browser, and is totally free of charge.

This project is funded by Cyberbotics Ltd. and the Human Brain Project.

About Cyberbotics Ltd.: Cyberbotics is a Swiss-based company, spin-off from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, specialized in the development of robotics simulation software. It has been developing and selling the Webots software for more than 19 years. Webots is a reference software in robotics simulation being used in more than 1200 companies and universities across the world. Cyberbotics is also involved in industrial and research projects, such as the Human Brain Project.

About the Human Brain Project: The Human Brain Project is a large ten-year scientific research project that aims to build a collaborative ICT-based scientific research infrastructure to allow researchers across the globe to advance knowledge in the fields of neuroscience, computing, neurorobotics, and brain-related medicine. The Project, which started on 1 October 2013, is a European Commission Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it is coordinated by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and is largely funded by the European Union.

Our future could be full of undying, self-repairing robots – here’s how

Could it be that future AI systems will need robotic “bodies” to interact with the world? If so, will nightmarish ideas like the self-repairing, shape-shifting T-1000 robot from the Terminator 2 movie come to fruition? And could a robot be created that could “live” forever?
