Printable device points toward sensor-laden robot skin

ScienceDaily's AI News - Thu, 23/03/2017 - 10:58
In this age of smartphones and tablet computers, touch-sensitive surfaces are everywhere. They're also brittle, as people with cracked phone screens everywhere can attest. Covering a robot -- or an airplane or a bridge -- with sensors will require a technology that is both flexible and cost-effective to manufacture in bulk. A team of researchers thinks that 3-D printing could be the answer.

Controlling turtle motion with human thought

A research group has demonstrated that by changing only its parameter related to speed, a quadruped robot can spontaneously change its steps.

People afraid of robots are much more likely to fear losing their jobs and suffer anxiety-related mental health issues, study finds

ScienceDaily's AI News - Tue, 21/03/2017 - 12:50
“Technophobes” — people who fear robots, artificial intelligence and new technology that they don’t understand — are much more likely to be afraid of losing their jobs due to technology and to suffer anxiety-related mental health issues, a researcher says.

New brain-inspired cybersecurity system detects 'bad apples' 100 times faster

ScienceDaily's AI News - Tue, 21/03/2017 - 12:25
The Neuromorphic Cyber Microscope can look for the complex patterns that indicate specific 'bad apples,' all while using less electricity than a standard 60-watt light bulb, due to its brain-inspired design.

People remain calm as the world ends, video game study suggests

ScienceDaily's AI News - Mon, 20/03/2017 - 16:23
As the world ends, will you lock arms and sing 'Kumbayah' or embark on a path of law-breaking, anti-social behavior? A new study, based upon the virtual actions of more than 80,000 players of the role-playing video game ArcheAge, suggests you'll be singing. The study found that despite some violent acts, most players tended toward behavior that was helpful to others as their virtual world came to an end.

'Tree-on-a-chip' passively pumps water for days

ScienceDaily's AI News - Mon, 20/03/2017 - 14:38
Engineers have created a 'tree-on-a-chip' -- a microfluidic pump inspired by the way trees and plants circulate nutrients. The chip pumps water for days, at constant rates that could power small robots.

Using big data to analyze images, video better than the human brain

World’s first 'lip password' utilizes a user's lip motions to create password

ScienceDaily's AI News - Mon, 13/03/2017 - 11:07
Scientists have invented a new technology entitled “lip motion password” (lip password) which utilizes a person’s lip motions to create a password.

Computer linguists are developing an intelligent system aid for air traffic controllers

ScienceDaily's AI News - Wed, 08/03/2017 - 11:48
Human lives depend on their decisions, and psychological stress levels are high. An average radio contact takes 3.5 to 11.3 seconds, during which the air traffic controller checks in with the pilot, examines the radar screens and gives out new instructions. The current technical support systems typically lack the ability to understand and process these brief radio exchanges.

Artificial intelligence virtual consultant helps deliver better patient care

ScienceDaily's AI News - Wed, 08/03/2017 - 11:48
Interventional radiologists are using technology found in self-driving cars to power a machine learning application that helps guide patients' interventional radiology care.
