    Walt Disney is developing humanoid 'stuntbots' to take over from actors in films and theme parks during dangerous stunts

    [​IMG]
    • Walt Disney Studios is creating a robot capable of performing aerial manoeuvres
    • These humanoid robots would replace actors in dangerous, high-flying stunts
    • Gyroscopes, accelerometers and lasers help to keep the robot balanced
    • They are able to stick any landing as they can manipulate the centre of mass
    • They would likely be used in both films and live shows in Disney theme parks

    Robots grading student tests?...

    More States Opting To 'Robo-Grade' Student Essays By Computer

    Here's a little pop quiz.


    Multiple-choice tests are useful because:


    A: They're cheap to score.


    B: They can be scored quickly.


    C: They score without human bias.


    D: All of the above.


    It would take a computer about a nano-second to mark "D" as the correct answer. That's easy.


    But now, machines are also grading students' essays. Computers are scoring long form answers on anything from the fall of the Roman Empire, to the pros and cons of government regulations.


    Developers of so-called "robo-graders" say they understand why many students and teachers would be skeptical of the idea. But they insist, with computers already doing jobs as complicated and as fraught as driving cars, detecting cancer, and carrying on conversations, they can certainly handle grading students' essays.
