In the center of this page, you see a feed of the MIT Technology Review, one of the major science and technology channels on emerging topics around technology.
You will find most of the underlying technology of the articles in the categories on the left and right with resources on introduction to them.
The field of Robotics is about the combination of sensors, control algorithms and actuators. Robots are usually considered as (autonomous) agents that are located in a specified environment, however also automation of systems in a broader sense falls into this category.
Additive Manufacturing is a technology for building an object by adding and combining raw material in a way determined by a digital model of the product. The raw material can consist of metals, plastics or biological tissue. The related term 3D Printing is often used for creating objects by adding different layers built from thermoplastic filament.
Quantum Computing relies on phenomena from quantum physics and allows to achieve computations through quantum bits (qubits) that do not rely only on the binary bits 1 and 0 but also on superposition of them. This technique promises to solve highly complex computational problems, that are infeasible for classical computers.
