The Best 3D Printing Book Yet?
There have been a number of fascinating 3D printing books emerge, but we believe this one could be the best yet. Its published by 3D Hubs, the Netherlands-based 3D printing community network, I suspect in an effort to help their participants, both 3D printer operators and 3D print requestors understand the process of 3D printing a lot better. The topic of 3D printing has been covered relatively poorly by the mass media, leading to all kinds of confusion over the past few years.

Homed Project Uses 3D Printing to Provide Temporary Accommodation for Homeless
Every major city has problems with homelessness. New York City, however, is one of the worst: the Coalition for the Homeless estimates that more than 61,000 people are sleeping in the citys homeless shelters every night, with thousands more spending the nights on the streets, subways, or other public spaces. The problem is a complicated one with a number of causes, but a big part of it is that while New York City is filling up with housing, very little of that housing is affordable to low-income residents.

FCC will also order states to scrap plans for their own net neutrality laws
In addition to ditching its own net neutrality rules, the Federal Communications Commission also plans to tell state and local governments that they cannot impose local laws regulating broadband service. This detail was revealed by senior FCC officials in a phone briefing with reporters today, and it is a victory for broadband providers that asked for widespread preemption of state laws. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposed order finds that state and local laws must be preempted if they conflict with the US government's policy of deregulating broadband Internet service, FCC officials said.

DART: Noise injection for robust imitation learning
by Articles November 22, 2017 By Michael Laskey, Jonathan Lee, and Ken Goldberg In Imitation Learning (IL), also known as Learning from Demonstration (LfD), a robot learns a control policy from analyzing demonstrations of the policy performed by an algorithmic or human supervisor. For example, to teach a robot make a bed, a human would tele-operate a robot to perform the task to provide examples. The robot then learns a control policy, mapping from images/states to actions which we hope will generalize to states that were not encountered during training.

DARPA Seeking AI That Learns All the Time
Earlier this month a self-driving shuttle in Las Vegas patiently waited as a delivery truck backed up, then backed up some more, then backed right into it. Inconveniently for the roboshuttles developer Navya, this happened within hours of the shuttles inauguration ceremony. The real problem is that the shuttle cant learn from the incident the way a human would: immediately and without forgetting how to do everything else in the process.
