Boston the hot spot for bots

Global robotics executives will converge on Boston this week as the leading business development event for the robotics industry has its 10th annual conference here, solidifying the Hub’s reputation as a national leader in artificial intelligence bots.

 

Cutting-edge innovators will display robots that teach special education students, toy robots, autonomous vehicles for mining and military manufacturing, wearable robots that help people with disabilities walk, and humanoid bots complete with arms and legs.

 

“Boston has really become the focal point for leadership in the promotion of robotics on a national stage,” said RoboBusiness attendee Rich Mahoney, director of robotics at SRI International, a Silicon Valley research and development nonprofit. “More than iRobot being founded there, it’s the leadership those founders have shown.”

MFA study finds Bostonians love cultural events

Bostonians are more culturally engaged and attend a greater number of cultural events per month compared with the national average, the Museum of Fine Arts said Friday.

 

The MFA’s findings are the result of a study of the Boston area’s cultural audience titled “Culture Track 2014: Focus on Boston.” According to a statement from the MFA, 1,238 people from Boston, Greater Boston, and parts of New Hampshire answered online questions from February to March about their engagement in culture, for the first Boston edition of the survey.

 

“This study, commissioned by the MFA, gets inside Boston’s unique cultural mindset, which is deeply informed, engaged, and unique,” MFA director Malcolm Rogers said in the statement. “We expect that it will help as we build and diversify our audiences in the future. It’s a privilege for us to share the findings with Boston’s cultural community.”

'Swing Time' at The Lawn on D Combines Playground Fun & Interactive Art

As if The Lawn on D, a 2.7-acre park on D Street next to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, doesn't offer Bostonians enough engaging events and innovative installments (it most certainly does), the masterminds behind Boston's next great public park are helping to give you a playground item found almost anywhere. Only, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority isn't breaking ground on any old swing set.

 

Dubbed 'Swing Time,' these swings are no ordinary oscillating seats. Rather, they're more one part swing, one part interactive art. And they're designed so that those who use them will not only interact with the swing, but interact with each other as well. At least, that's the intention of designers Meejin Yoon and Eric Höweler of Höweler + Yoon Architecture.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”
