Multi-robot Simultaneous Localization and Mapping using Particle Filters
This paper describes an on-line algorithm for multi- robot simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). We take as our starting point the single-robot Rao-Blackwellized particle filter described in [1] and make two key generalizations. First, we extend the particle filter to handle multi-robot SLAM problems in which the initial pose of the robots is known (such as occurs when all robots start from the same location). Second, we introduce an approximation to solve the more general problem in which the initial pose of robots is not known a priori (such as occurs when the robots start from widely separated locations).

FastSLAM: A Factored Solution to the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping Problem
This paper presents FastSLAM, an algorithm that recursively estimates the full posterior distribution over robot pose and landmark locations, yet scales logarithmically with the number of landmarks in the map.

Is AI an asset to hiring, or will it bring us down a sinkhole of algorithmic bias?
"In the aftermath of Amazon abandoning its AI hiring initiative, AI for HR remains a volatile topic. This fall, Montage issued fresh data on AI in HR. My exchange with Kurt Heikkinen, President and CEO of Montage, brought the debate into focus."

Cyborg, Or Leafy Sensor Array? | Hackaday
Some plants react quickly enough for our senses to notice, such as a Venus flytrap or mimosa pudica. Most of the time, we need time-lapse photography at a minimum to notice while more exotic sensors can measure things like microscopic pores opening and closing. As with any sensor reading, those measurements can be turned into action through a little trick we call automation. [Harpreet Sareen] and [Pattie Maes] at MIT brought these two ideas together in a way which we haven’t seen before where a plant has taken the driver’s seat in a project called Elowan. Details are sparse but the concept is easy enough to grasp.
