Portrait of the Artist as a Young Robot When it comes making art most of us operate under a set of rules we learned when drawing, writing or composing music. So what happens when you feed machines code for churning out art? Turns out plenty, and some of it can be construed as autonomously creative. And if creativity is the seat of the soul, what does that say about our uniqueness when a machine can create its own spark of originality? Join the conversation on how machines will alter the future of art. Plus, be sure to check out Studio 360's art section as well as my curiosity article "10 Ways Robots Could Replace Humans."

A national manufacturer of stock and custom plastic packaging solutions for the food packaging, chemical, automotive and household industries faced the challenge of improving its safety and ergonomics associated with its manual system of unloading its Nissei Bottle Making Machine at its manufacturing facility. The company also wanted to find a solution to reduce scrap and increase productivity.
It combines the automatic feeder with the automatically moving electric screwdriver to realize the complementary supply of screws and the locking, which greatly improves the production efficiency and saves manpower. Once the screwdriver is lifted after locking the screw, the automatic feeder will send the other screw to the Escape of the automatic feeder. The screwdriver head absorbs the screw and the robot can automatically move according to the coordinate point and tighten it. This is particularly suitable for multi-station workpieces of the same specification. 
Everything in the plant runs much more smoothly. More bottles are being produced, but the pace seems slower since there was a reduction in complexity in the system,” said the plant manager. “We have seen a reduction in the commotion and activity since employees can now work at a constant pace and succeed without as much physical effort. We also have a greater chance to understand the bottlenecks in the manufacturing process. We are reviewing to see where we can make an economic justification for adding automation,” said the plant manager. “We chose the ones that are simple to execute first that run one mold all day, as well as the systems with the highest stress strain or ergonomic safety issues. We are looking for future automation as soon as we can.

So what are Julie and I up to this week? Well, in addition to recording episodes on personhood, milk and mermaids, we also published two exciting episodes that should expand your mind on the topics of human creativity, machine intelligence and the processing power of the human infant. So here are the breakdowns as well as the embedded feeds for each episode.
The plastics manufacturer also considered a vendor with a fixed automation system that included a simple slide but decided that system wasn’t reliable enough for its needs. In addition, every time the mold tooling changed, the slide also had to be changed to accommodate the new product. This created a higher cost to change tooling that was not acceptable. The facility included one machine with a manufacturers fixed automation system, but they wanted to find a more flexible and reliable solution.
