From a visit to the SKA project in the Western Cape to a visit to the CSIR in Pretoria to find out more about intelligent field robotic systems, 8 senior journalists and bloggers from the US, UK, China and one from South Africa explored South Africa last week, here are some of their posts:
Richard Dowden, The Royal Africa Society:
In South Africa last week I saw: a mobile robot being programmed, a magical film studio, a radio telescope system that explores galaxies and dark matter, polluted mine water being purified. And I went down a coal mine.
Liron Segev, The Techie Guy:
Robots in South African are a reality from the CSIR Mobile Intelligent Autonomous Systems department
When we look at the futuristic movies, we see a constant theme: robots. Robots start off innocently enough: they bring us tea in bed, vacuum the house and lift heavy objects so we don’t need to.
Sinem Bilen Onabanjo, FAB Magazine:
For those of you who may not be on my Instagram, greetings from Johannesburg! On Friday evening I left the UK for the sunny shores of South Africa.
As I sit in what is possibly the most comfortable chair in the stylish and sustainable Hotel Verde in Cape Town, I am so tempted to sum up my South African experience and give you an overview of this amazing.
Over the last week, I have taken you to Mercedes Benz Africa Fashion International for a glimpse of the fashionable side of Johannesburg and through a historical trail in Soweto.
