    For everyone worried now that robots have learned how to open doors and perform somersaults, take heart: if you’re good at skiing, they probably won’t catch you on mountain slopes.

    Just a short drive away from PyeongChang, the site for the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Welli Hilli ski resort held the Edge of Robot: Ski Robot Challenge, where Korean students and tech organizations competed for a $10,000 prize to see whose robot could navigate a simple alpine skiing challenge the fastest.
