This was a busy year for robotics! The 10 most read Robohub articles in 2017 show an increased interest in machine learning, and a thirst to learn how robots work and can be programmed. Highlights also include the Robohub Podcast, which just celebrated its 250th episode (that’s 10 years of bi-weekly interviews in robotics), the Robot Launch Startup Competition, and our yearly list of 25 women in robotics you need to know about. Finally, we couldn’t skip over some of the remarkable events of 2017, including a swarm of drones flying over Metallica, and Sophia “gaining citizenship“.
Thanks to all our expert contributors, and here’s to many more articles in 2018!
