“We connect the human to the robot in very intuitive and meaningful way. The human can provide intuition and expertise and cognitive abilities to the robot" - Oussama Khatib

The robot, called OceanOne, is powered by artificial intelligence and haptic feedback systems, allowing human pilots an unprecedented ability to explore the depths of the oceans in high fidelity.

Fortunate enough to sit down recently with Baidu USA's Adam Coates. Great insights from a definite mover and shaker in the world of speech recognition.

“Is technology moving into the driver’s seat as the primary determinant of human destiny? That for me is the dangerous master, what’s needed is a more concerted effort on our part to help manage, shape and adapt to emerging technologies in a way that they stay our tools and not dictate who or what we should be.” - Wendell Wallach​

Danny Ives was the first true "mentor" I've ever had in martial arts. I've never had another instructor treat me so kindly and take me under his wing the way that Danny did - and through him I learned many of the fundamentals that molded my Jiu Jitsu game. On top of that, I'm forever grateful to him as a guide and mentor who went well above and beyond as a teacher. If you're in the Annapolis area, try a class with Danny Ives and Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts.

When it comes to authentic selling, Marc is the guy to go to. I'm not naturally the most "systematic" person by nature, and Marc made up for that. Sometimes I joke and say that I let him think FOR me about sales - and that's often the truth!

As the owner of a Mixed Martial Arts academy here in Peace Dale, my experience with Dennis in the last 3.5 years has been phenomenal. Beginning in the warehouse of a carpet store, learning sales skills and techniques from Dennis allowed us to progressively move up to the 2,000 square foot space we now occupy. Knowing how to communicate our message to set appointments and gain referrals has been invaluable to our academy. As a UPENN graduate with a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology, I enjoy conceptual learning - and can appreciate someone who "knows their stuff." In the domain of sales and management, Dennis has got this in spades. The UBC is the only resource I've needed for business development Daniel Faggella, MAPP Owner, Black Diamond Mixed Martial Arts

Span down to this gym a few weeks ago to check out Formiga after I heard he was teaching classes there. The guy is a fantastic grappler with a world class butterfly / x-guard game, definitely recommend checking it out. So long as you don't mind the body heat, everyone here is 'good people', and its definitely a cool spot to train in my book. One day I'll pass your guard, Formiga, one day!

I used the copy center ALL the time. Literally. In the last 3 years they've done a very good job of getting things to me on tome. Occasionally directions will be misread, but they are able to make corrections (which shows great service despite subtle inconvenience). The girls behind the copy center desk are always very nice as well.

Coach Danny Ives is one of the best mentors in the BJJ world as far as I'm concerned. As a technician, a coach, and a caring guy, this place is run well and has something to fit almost anyone. Kid's classes are unlike anywhere else I've seen in terms of excitement, fun and learning.
