Researchers design 'soft' robots that can move on their own

Wed, 18/04/2018 - 14:13
If Star Wars' R2-D2 is your idea of a robot, think again. Researchers have reported a new class of soft robot, composed of ultrathin sensing, actuating electronics and temperature-sensitive artificial muscle that can adapt to the environment and crawl, similar to the movement of an inchworm or caterpillar.

Robot developed for automated assembly of designer nanomaterials

Wed, 18/04/2018 - 11:16
Engineers have developed a robot that can identify, collect, and manipulate two-dimensional nanocrystals. The robot stacked nanocrystals to form the most complex van der Waals heterostructure produced to date, with much less human intervention than the manual operations previously used to produce van der Waals heterostructures. This robot allows unprecedented access to van der Waals heterostructures, which are attractive for use in advanced electronics.

An AI that makes road maps from aerial images

Tue, 17/04/2018 - 13:00
Map apps may have changed our world, but they still haven't mapped all of it yet. In particular, mapping roads can be tedious: even after taking aerial images, companies like Google still have to spend many hours manually tracing out roads. As a result, they haven't yet gotten around to mapping the vast majority of the more than 20 million miles of roads across the globe.

Two robots are better than one: 5G antenna measurement research

Mon, 16/04/2018 - 14:24
Researchers continue to develop new antenna measurement methods, this time for future 5G wireless communications systems.

Face recognition technology that works in the dark

Mon, 16/04/2018 - 14:24
Researchers have developed an artificial intelligence and machine learning technique that produces a visible face image from a thermal image of a person's face captured in low-light or nighttime conditions. This development could lead to enhanced real-time biometrics and post-mission forensic analysis for covert nighttime operations.

Artificial intelligence helps predict likelihood of life on other worlds

Wed, 04/04/2018 - 09:39
Developments in artificial intelligence may help us to predict the probability of life on other planets. The study uses artificial neural networks (ANNs) to classify planets into five types, estimating a probability of life in each case, which could be used in future interstellar exploration missions.

Chemical synthesis with artificial intelligence: Researchers develop new computer method

Thu, 29/03/2018 - 09:54
The board game Go was long considered to be a bastion reserved for human players due to its complexity. Now, however, the world's best players no longer have any chance of winning against the 'AlphaGo' software. Researchers have now demonstrated that the recipe for the success of this software can be put to excellent use to plan chemical syntheses.

Teaching machines to spot the essential

Wed, 28/03/2018 - 11:59
Physicists have developed a novel machine-learning algorithm that analyses large data sets describing a physical system and extract from them the essential information needed to understand the underlying physics.

Dissecting artificial intelligence to better understand the human brain

Sun, 25/03/2018 - 11:57
In the natural world, intelligence takes many forms. It could be a bat using echolocation to expertly navigate in the dark, or an octopus adapting its behavior to survive in the deep ocean. Likewise, in the computer science world, multiple forms of artificial intelligence are emerging. Cognitive neuroscientists are using those emerging networks to enhance understanding of one of the most elusive intelligence systems, the human brain.

Can artificial intelligence be used to study gut microbes in patients?

Wed, 21/03/2018 - 09:05
A new article proposes that artificial intelligence tools, such as machine learning algorithms, have the potential for building predictive models for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases linked to imbalances in gut microbial communities, or microbiota.

Pipe-crawling robot will help decommission DOE nuclear facility

Tue, 20/03/2018 - 08:43
A pair of autonomous robots will soon be driving through miles of pipes at the US Department of Energy's former uranium enrichment plant in Piketon, Ohio, to identify uranium deposits on pipe walls.

Origami-inspired self-locking foldable robotic arm

Thu, 15/03/2018 - 09:18
A research team has developed an origami-inspired robotic arm that is foldable, self-assembling and also highly-rigid.

Is your smile male or female?

Wed, 14/03/2018 - 12:54
The dynamics of how men and women smile differs measurably, according to new research, enabling artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically assign gender purely based on a smile.

Google's AI program: Building better algorithms for detecting eye disease

Tue, 13/03/2018 - 13:06
A new study lays important groundwork for an automated system that can detect diabetic eye disease.

Ag robot speeds data collection, analyses of crops as they grow

Mon, 12/03/2018 - 20:16
A new lightweight, low-cost agricultural robot could transform data collection and field scouting for agronomists, seed companies and farmers. The TerraSentia crop phenotyping robot measures the traits of individual plants using a variety of sensors, including cameras, transmitting the data in real time to the operator's phone or laptop computer.

Six-legged robots get closer to nature

Fri, 09/03/2018 - 09:54
A study has uncovered new ways of driving multi-legged robots by means of a two-level controller. The proposed controller uses a network of so-called non-linear oscillators that enables the generation of diverse gaits and postures, which are specified by only a few high-level parameters. The study inspires new research into how multi-legged robots can be controlled, including in the future using brain-computer interfaces.

Scientists help robots understand humans with 20 questions game idea

Wed, 07/03/2018 - 09:52
Information scientists have borrowed from the popular game "20 Questions," to make an important step towards helping robots maintain continuous and purposeful conversation with humans. They have developed an optimal strategy for asking a series of yes/no questions that rapidly achieves the best answer.

Researchers want to teach computers to learn like humans

Mon, 05/03/2018 - 09:30
A new study describes a new cloud-based learning platform for artificial intelligence (A.I.) that teaches machines to learn like humans.
