This week in AI & Machine Learning: Drones that land like a bird, robots doing brain surgery, 7-Eleven autonomous delivery, building AI-powered apps faster with PyTorch Live, and more!

Authors note:

I want to give a shout out to The Next Byte podcast providing a great overview of computer vision applications and featuring Plainsight’s article on detecting unwanted & hazardous objects with vision AI.

My Top AI Highlight:

Grasping Robotic Drone Can Land on a Branch Like a Bird

You may have seen a drone get stuck in a tree, but have you ever seen a drone gracefully land in one? Well, now you can!

Researchers from Stanford University have developed the “stereotyped nature-inspired aerial grasper” (SNAG) grasping mechanism that can allow drones to land and take off in complex environments just like birds.
