Transcriptic: Robotic laboratory science | The Verge

by

share this:

“Inside a nondescript office park in Silicon Valley, a robotic arm is running a test. With rapid, precise movements, the arm pipettes colored liquids into wells on a tray. Within a few minutes its work is done: the arm has pipetted the logo forTranscriptic, a fast-growing, Google Ventures-backed robotics startup that could upend the way biologists do their research.”

John Payne‘s insight:

Why this matters is probably best summed up by Google Ventures partner Blake Byers “It’s a fact that I’ve wasted many hours of my life moving my hand around to transport small volumes of liquid from one tube to another.”

The Verge has apparently started blocking deep links, so enter “Transcriptic” in the search field that appears in response to the link below.

Robots can be companions, caregivers, collaborators — and social influencers

People are hardwired to respond socially to technology that presents itself as even vaguely social. While this may sound like the beginnings of a Black Mirror episode, this tendency is precisely what allows us to enjoy social interactions with robots and place them in caregiver, collaborator or companion roles.
