    If artificial intelligence will inevitably be a central part of how we will interact with machines and services in the future, then learning more about who is developing these new AI systems and what they are making — is essential to us understanding and helping shape that world.

    Robot-maker Boston Dynamics has shown off its latest futuristic artificial intelligence, the robots which can effortlessly lift weights and transport packages with more agility than standard handling of goods and cargoes by human. The American firm has previously revealed the Handle robot jumping around. However, a new video has emerged showing the technology being used in a more practical working environment, carrying boxes weighing about 11lb (5kg) – though it is capable of taking three times that.

    Handle is seen working autonomously, quickly and carefully stacking boxes in a neat row on to pallets, providing a glimpse of how warehouse technology could be revolutionized in the future. It uses a vision system to track marked pallets for navigation and individual boxes that can then be grasped and placed elsewhere. Boston Dynamics is known for showing the world a new level of robotics, with human-like robots capable of doing parkour and a four-legged robot that looks like a dog among its creations.
