Lots of robots have artificial neural pathways, used for things like facial recognition and complex disease diagnosis. When one of these robots…

Now, at the New York International Auto Show, the emergent attribute is lightness--as in, the judicious use of aluminum and other lightweight materials in vehicle construction to boost fuel efficiency and performance. Sluggish luxury sedans are ancient history. Welcome to the era of light-heavyweight…
