What have you been up to lately, Atlas?
That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

Travelling through the past and present to define our future.
Italian culture along with art, architecture, music and food have made Italy great in the eyes of the rest of the world. Have you ever wondered how these masterpieces from the past have shaped today’s present, and how they can continue to be a source of inspiration in the future?
Three hundred years ago, Italy’s “Grand Tour” was a journey made mainly by wealthy young people to experience the beauties and artwork of Italian cities and culture to find that inspiration that revolutionised the modern world. Today Google re-invent it and made for everyone.
The robot’s lifelike movement catches the attention of a real dog. The uncanny uncanine valley. This is the latest quadruped robot from Google’s Boston Dynamics group, and the only one in civilian hands.

Holland is one of the greatest countries to live in, but the biggest downside is that it rains 145 days a year. That’s why the Google Cloud Platform team in the Netherlands is launching Google Wind this Spring.
We leveraged existing Dutch infrastructure to realize this moonshot in record time. We upgraded some historical windmills in Holland with control modules connected to Google Cloud Platform. Google Wind then uses Machine Learning to recognize cloud patterns and orchestrate the network of windmills when rain is approaching. Test results look very promising.
We’re proud to announce that from April 1st we’re able to help ensure clear skies for everyone in Holland.
