Robots are on the way.
Not only will robots be used to help us navigate our world, they’re going to help create new movies.
They’re going all-out.
And this week, National Geographic is bringing together a team of experts and experts to explore how robots are coming to our homes, our workplaces, our communities and beyond.
The team includes astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, the former CEO of Google and founder of the Breakthrough Institute, and astrophysicists at the University of California, Berkeley, University of Michigan, University in Pennsylvania and the University at Buffalo.
In a collaboration with filmmaker Adam McKay, this is National Geographic’s first foray into the field of robot movies.
A robotic, autonomous, fully automated filmmaking toolkit.
“A new kind a of cinema,” says McKay.
“And it’s a toolkit that is going to be used in a whole range of different kinds of film.
The new toolkit is built on the foundation of a previous National Geographic collaboration. “
We have a lot of fun working with a whole bunch of people to bring together these amazing robots and explore how they can be used for these new kinds of storytelling.”

In 2016, the National Geographic Institute’s Advanced Robotics Lab, led by the Carnegie Institution, announced the creation of a new robotic filmmaking tool called the “Human Motion Picture Production System.”
This system is built around a “dynamic camera,” which is a small, lightweight, autonomous robot that can move around and take pictures of a moving human subject.
When this camera moves, it’s able to record motion of the subject in real time, and then feed that into an algorithm that determines how to take the shot.
The process is similar to what happens in film.
“In film, we’re doing what you would do with a film camera, but you’re doing it on an individual basis,” says David Breslau, a professor of computer science at MIT.
“The robot is there to capture what the subject is doing, and the subject’s body moves and responds to the motion.
And that’s how the camera captures the image.”
The goal is to build a system that can handle motion in a way that’s not just “one frame and one camera shot,” says Bresrau.
“You’re capturing the whole frame.
You’re capturing everything, so that if there’s a scene where you can’t get a good shot, it doesn’t have to be a problem.”
In the past, filmmakers have used cameras, motion capture, special effects and other techniques to make their movies.
But what makes this new tool so powerful is that it’s not like using a computer to do something.
It’s entirely natural.
“There’s nothing special about the cameras that make up this tool,” says Matthew Cramer, director of the Robotics and Automation Lab at MIT, and co-founder of the Open Source Robotics Initiative.
“If you’ve ever been on a film set, you know that they use some kind of motion capture to take your eyes off the screen, and you can look at things in your peripheral vision, but that’s it.
You can’t do anything else.
“It’s a combination of all the technologies we’ve built for the past decade.” “
So this is a very powerful tool,” he says.

Breswes is optimistic that the new tool will make it possible for the public to experience robots in a new way.
“One of the great things about this is the ability to go to a theater and have a robot in a movie, because the theater is a space that has not had a lot for robot movies,” says Cramer.
“But when you look at this tool, it seems like it’s been built for movies.
It could be a way for the world to go into the future and see robots, because there’s nothing like robots in our everyday lives.”
For McKay, the future of robots in movies will be bright.
“This toolkit gives us an opportunity to start thinking about robots in ways that we haven’t thought about robots before,” he said.
“Imagine robots as characters, not as machines.
Imagine robots as living characters.
Imagine that you’re in the midst of a robot story, and robots are part of the story.
I think the way that we look at robots is going get really interesting in the next 10 years. “
That’s not something that’s possible with the way we think about computers, but it’s going to happen.
