Yesterday was all about space exploration as we celebrated Cosmonautics Day in Russia. It’s hard to imagine, but despite venturing far out into space, we still don’t know nearly enough about the inhabitants of the Earth’s oceans and especially at their deepest levels. There, in constantly reigning darkness an enigmatic world uncurls in slow motion. How can cutting-edge research in AI and robotics help explore this world? Read on to find out.
Researchers from ITMO’s Faculty of Infocommunication Technologies are the first to launch NFT (non-fungible tokens) for the creations of the Gaka-Chu robot artist. The robot’s pictures are already in demand – there are buyers willing to purchase tokens for the equivalent of $1,600 in Ethereum. Gaka-Chu will spend his earnings on new paints, brushes, and canvas.
