Fab Lab presenta al primer humanoide filosofo Aristoteles

Borderzine - Wed, 06/12/2019 - 12:51pm

CIUDAD JUÁREZ — Aristóteles, el primer humanoide filósofo fue creado con la idea de conversar y debatir al nivel del pensamiento de un humano.

Ingeniero Mecánico Electricista Marco Barraza de 65 años, construyo el robot en Fab Lab, un laboratorio de creación de prototipos a pequeña escala en Ciudad Juárez.

“Aristóteles es probar los algoritmos de inteligencia artificial la idea es que razone, escuche y hable como un humano, que vea casi como un humano, que vea y reconozca un objeto, reconozca personas y puede interactuar con una persona”, dijo Barraza.

Conforme a esto, Aristóteles puede hacer casi todos los movimientos de la cintura, caderas, brazos, cabeza y ojos como un humano y leer una variedad de artículos al día.

“Ahorita por ejemplo puede leer 25 mil artículos en día y hacer cerca de entre 300 a 500 mil fichas en un día, entonces va a ser un robot de conocimiento”, dice Barraza.

Estudiante en Ingeniería Mecatrónica Juan Vargas de 22 años, está en colaboración en el proyecto y relata que el siguiente reto es hacer caminar a Aristóteles según Vargas.

“Entonces para poder hacerlo caminar hay que ver diferentes mecanismos para obtener el balance perfecto del robot y sobre todo investigar los sensores que se tienen que utilizar” dice Vargas

Para que esto suceda, sensores como el giroscópico que funciona básicamente para obtener un punto de equilibrio en especifico de algún objeto, seria un punto clave para que el robot tenga un equilibrio exacto, explico Vargas.

Aristóteles consiste con un aproximado de 500 piezas impresas. Dependiendo de la pieza puede tomar de 24 hasta arriba de 30 horas para imprimir, explico Juan.

La experiencia del Gerente de Fab Lab, Samuel Badillo de 31 años, al ver Aristóteles por primera vez fue de asombro.

“Lo que yo vi primero fue la mano y el antebrazo, se me hizo muy interesante pero realmente no es nada más en que sea una mano o tenga movimiento, si no todo el conocimiento, las técnicas que requiere algo así que puede verse simple”, dice Badillo.

De acuerdo con el Gerente de Fab Lab Badillo, Aristoteles es el primer robot especializado en filosofía creado en un Fab Lab.

El proyecto Aristóteles ha llevado un proceso de un año y medio, el cual el Ingeniero Barraza espera que dentro de otro año y medio más se pueda seguir perfeccionando a éste humanoide con inteligencia artificial.

Open meetings violations

ElPasoSpeak - Wed, 06/12/2019 - 5:00am

If the following two documents are correctly done our city council and our city attorney are in flagrant violation of the Texas Open Meetings Act.

They held a special city council meeting on Monday, May 13, 2019.  They posted an agenda that told us that they would be considering seven items.

The agenda for the special city council meeting on Monday, May 13, 2019 can be read here.

The minutes of the meeting reflect an entirely different story.  From the minutes:

“The agenda items for the Regular City Council [meeting] of May 13, 2019 were reviewed.”

According to their minutes they reviewed items from a future city council meeting.  They have the right to do that but it has to be on the agenda of the meeting where they do it.  In this case it was not.

According to their records they did not have a regular city council meeting on May 13, 2019 but they did have one on May 14, 2019.

The May 13, 2019 meeting was a special city council meeting that had a publicly posted agenda.  That agenda did not include the items that were to be considered in the meeting the day after.

However the minutes of the May 13 meeting indicate that they did consider items that were going to be part of the May 14, 2019 meeting.

According to the Texas supreme court “The notice [agenda] must be sufficient to apprise the general public of the subjects to be considered during the meeting. ”

The minutes of that meeting can be read here.

We deserve better
