A vision for robotics to do tasks that humans either can't do well or can't do safely will remain out of reach until robots can move in ways that currently are impossible or impractical. Better movement systems will let robots function in a wider variety of settings than is currently feasible and also become more resilient when, for example, they are bumped or pushed. Several research projects are focusing on new types of robotic movement, as George Lawton describes in “New Ways to Get Robots on the Move”. In “Researcher Uses AI to Analyze Human Genomes”, Lawton writes how a researcher is using artficial intelligence to analyze human genomes. In “New Approach Lets Users Design and Build Their Own Robots”, Lawton explains how a new approach lets people who aren't technical professionals make their own robots.
