British technology firm Dyson are building robots that will perform household chores in the homes of the future. They offered attendees of the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Philadelphia a sneak peak at an autonomous device capable of performing far more complex tasks than the robotic floor-based vacuum cleaners they have previously developed. They are now recruiting the brightest and best to further their research and the robots' development. Dyson's Chief Engineer Jake Dyson says:, “Dyson employed its first roboticist 20 years ago and this year alone we are seeking 250 more experts for our team. This is a 'big bet' on future robotic technology that will drive research across the whole of Dyson, in areas including mechanical engineering, vision systems, machine learning and energy storage.” The company hope to bring the technology, which could fulfil the dream of a life without chores, into our homes by the end of the decade.
