Underwater robot swarms use collective cognition to perform tasks

Thu, 28/05/2015 - 08:36
Scientists have created underwater robot swarms that function like schools of fish, exchanging information to monitor the environment, searching, maintaining, exploring and harvesting resources in underwater habitats. The project developed autonomous robots that interact with each other and exchange information, resulting in a cognitive system that is aware of its environment.

Job-sharing with nursing robots

Wed, 27/05/2015 - 15:11
Given the threat of a massive earthquake striking Japan, researchers have organized a cooperative project team to develop a new robot. They set about determining the factors that are most important to hospital patients in modern society, after which they set about developing the world's first medical round robot capable of job-sharing, making more time for face-to-face nursing care.

New algorithm lets autonomous robots divvy up assembly tasks on the fly

Wed, 27/05/2015 - 14:21
Today's industrial robots are remarkably efficient -- as long as they're in a controlled environment where everything is exactly where they expect it to be.

Robots can automatically recover from damage in minutes

Wed, 27/05/2015 - 13:40
Robots will one day provide tremendous benefits to society, such as in search and rescue missions and putting out forest fires -- but not until they can learn to keep working if they become damaged. A new article shows how to make robots automatically recover from injury in less than two minutes.

Making good use of social media

Wed, 27/05/2015 - 13:37
Researchers are extracting useful information from billions of social media posts to support businesses, governments and healthcare professionals.

Co-operative tools: Intelligent handheld robots

Tue, 26/05/2015 - 12:48
Researchers have developed and started studying a novel concept in robotics -- intelligent handheld robots.

Communication made easier for children with cerebral palsy

Tue, 26/05/2015 - 09:35
A European initiative has developed a new brain-computer interface system to enhance communication skills of people with cerebral palsy from childhood, improving the relationship with their environment and the expression of emotions.

Scientist created drones that fly autonomously and learn new routes

Tue, 26/05/2015 - 08:51
Drones, say goodbye to pilots. With the goal of achieving autonomous flight of these aerial vehicles, researchers have developed a vision and learning system to control and navigate them without relying on a GPS signal or trained personnel.

Robot masters new skills through trial and error

Fri, 22/05/2015 - 10:54
Researchers have developed algorithms that enable robots to learn motor tasks through trial and error using a process that more closely approximates the way humans learn, marking a major milestone in the field of artificial intelligence.

Intuitive control of robotic arm using thoughts alone

Thu, 21/05/2015 - 14:40
Through a clinical collaboration between Caltech, Keck Medicine of USC and Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, a 34-year-old paralyzed man is the first person in the world to have a neural prosthetic device implanted in a region of the brain where intentions are made, giving him the ability to perform a fluid hand-shaking gesture, drink a beverage, and even play 'rock, paper, scissors,' using a robotic arm.

Computing at the speed of light with ultracompact beamsplitter

Mon, 18/05/2015 - 12:11
Engineers have developed an ultracompact beamsplitter -- the smallest on record -- for dividing light waves into two separate channels of information. The device brings researchers closer to producing silicon photonic chips that compute and shuttle data with light instead of electrons.

Rehabilitation sleeve: An functional electrical stimulation-robot hybrid system

Thu, 14/05/2015 - 13:27
A wearable FES-robot hybrid training system has been designed for multi-joint upper limb rehabilitation. With successful combination of the two technologies' advantages, recovery achieved by the hybrid system was more prominent than using either technology alone in pilot clinical trials.

Computer intelligence system developed for acute stroke detection

Thu, 14/05/2015 - 09:57
A novel computer-aided detection system has been developed for acute stroke using computer intelligence technology. The detection accuracy is 90 percent, which is as high as that conducted by specialists, but at a much reduced time from 10-15 minutes to three minutes. The new system serves as a second opinion for frontline medical doctors, enabling timely and appropriate treatment for stroke patients.

Not good at sports strategies? Game intelligence can be learned

Thu, 14/05/2015 - 08:57
New theories on game intelligence could change the world of team sports forever. Game intelligence is not necessarily something you are born with but something you can learn, according to new research.

Novel computer intelligence system for acute stroke detection

Tue, 12/05/2015 - 11:23
Medical researchers have developed a novel computer-aided detection system for acute stroke using computer intelligence technology. The detection accuracy is 90%, which is as high as that conducted by specialists, but at a much reduced time from 10-15 minutes to 3 minutes.

Ants' movements hide mathematical patterns

Tue, 12/05/2015 - 10:35
When ants go exploring in search of food they end up choosing collective routes that fit statistical distributions of probability. This has been demonstrated by a team of mathematicians after analyzing the trails of a species of Argentine ant. Studies like this could be applied to coordinate the movement of micro-robots in cleaning contaminated areas for example.

Controlling swarms of cooperative robots with light and a single finger

Tue, 12/05/2015 - 07:54
Using a smart tablet and a red beam of light, researchers have created a system that allows people to control a fleet of robots with the swipe of a finger.
