Now your phone can become a robot that does the boring work

Tue, 18/06/2019 - 11:31
Researchers have developed a smartphone app that allows a user to easily program any robot to perform a task, dramatically bringing down the costs of building and programming mobile robots.

Translating university lectures in multiple languages

Fri, 14/06/2019 - 08:29
Researchers report a new machine translation system that outputs subtitles in multiple languages for archived university lectures. As countries like China and Japan expand their international student cohort, this system could relax language demands and allow the students to study in their mother tongue.

Algorithm tells robots where nearby humans are headed

Wed, 12/06/2019 - 14:13
A new tool for predicting a person's movement trajectory may help humans and robots work together in close proximity.

Could playing computer games improve your peripheral vision?

Wed, 12/06/2019 - 11:01
Researchers have found a significant improvement in the peripheral awareness of people who played computer games specially designed around using peripheral vision. This finding opens up the possibility that these types of games can be used to help improve players' performance in team sports - so they can spot team-mates quicker - or to help them to identify potential hazards at the side of their vision.

How artificial intelligence can help detect rare diseases

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 13:38
In a study of 679 patients with 105 different rare diseases, scientists have shown that artificial intelligence can be used to diagnose rare diseases more efficiently and reliably. A neural network automatically combines portrait photos with genetic and patient data.

Autonomous boats can target and latch onto each other

Wed, 05/06/2019 - 13:48
Researchers have given new capabilities to their fleet of robotic boats that let them target and clasp onto each other, and keep trying if they fail.

Enabling transportation agencies to automate traffic monitoring

Tue, 04/06/2019 - 08:48
Scientists announce the release of ActiveVision, a machine vision tool that transportation agencies can use to autonomously detect and report traffic condition changes. ActiveVision's algorithms process camera data to provide real-time information on weather conditions and other anomalies affecting congestion. Designed for integration with intelligent transportation systems (ITS), ActiveVision can be configured with existing traffic cameras to analyze roadway conditions with no human monitoring required.

Do video games with shooting affect kids' behavior with real guns?

Fri, 31/05/2019 - 14:31
A randomized clinical trial in a university laboratory examined the effects of video games with weapons on children's behavior when they found a real gun.

'Slothbot' takes a leisurely approach to environmental monitoring

Thu, 30/05/2019 - 10:12
For environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, infrastructure maintenance and certain security applications, slow and energy efficient can be better than fast and always needing a recharge. That's where 'SlothBot' comes in.

Tempted to cheat on a written exam? Artificial intelligence is 90% certain to nab you

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 14:50
Combining big data with artificial intelligence has allowed researchers to determine whether you wrote your assignment or whether a ghostwriter penned it for you -- with nearly 90 percent accuracy.

Outsmarting deep fakes: AI-driven imaging system protects authenticity

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 13:11
To thwart sophisticated deep fake methods of altering photos and video, researchers have devised a technique to authenticate images throughout the entire pipeline, from acquisition to delivery, using artificial intelligence.

Sensor-packed glove learns signatures of the human grasp

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 13:11
Wearing a sensor-packed glove while handling a variety of objects, researchers have compiled a massive dataset that enables an AI system to recognize objects through touch alone. The information could be leveraged to help robots identify and manipulate objects, and may aid in prosthetics design.

Better together: human and robot co-workers

Fri, 24/05/2019 - 11:35
More and more processes are being automated. Self-driving delivery vehicles are finding their way into many areas. However, an interdisciplinary research team has observed that cooperation between humans and machines can work much better than just human or just robot teams alone.

Nature inspires a novel new form of computing, using light

Fri, 24/05/2019 - 08:16
Researchers have developed a simple and highly novel form of computing by shining patterned bands of light and shadow through different facets of a polymer cube and reading the combined results that emerge.

Bringing human-like reasoning to driverless car navigation

Thu, 23/05/2019 - 13:02
With aims of bringing more human-like reasoning to autonomous vehicles, researchers have created a system that uses only simple maps and visual data to enable driverless cars to navigate routes in new, complex environments.

Big energy savings for tiny machines

Wed, 22/05/2019 - 15:31
Physicists demonstrate for the first time a strategy for manipulating the trillions of tiny molecular nanomachines inside us that work to keep us alive, to maximize efficiency and conserve energy. The breakthrough could impact numerous fields, including creating more efficient computer chips and solar cells for energy generation.

Soft, social robot brings coziness to homes, and classrooms

Wed, 22/05/2019 - 14:19
A new social robot that can be customized with handcrafted material, such as wood and wool, brings simplicity and fun to home robotics -- and will soon be used to help teach math to fourth graders.

With a hop, a skip and a jump, high-flying robot leaps through obstacles with ease

Tue, 21/05/2019 - 16:24
First unveiled in 2016, Salto the jumping robot stands at little less than a foot, but can vault over three times its height in a single bound. Now researchers have equipped the robot with a slew of new skills, giving it the ability to bounce in place like a pogo stick and jump through obstacle courses like an agility dog. Salto can even take short jaunts outside, powered by radio controller.

New framework improves performance of deep neural networks

Tue, 21/05/2019 - 12:45
Researchers have developed a new framework for building deep neural networks via grammar-guided network generators. In experimental testing, the new networks -- called AOGNets -- have outperformed existing state-of-the-art frameworks, including the widely used ResNet and DenseNet systems, in visual recognition tasks.

'Spider-like senses' could help autonomous machines see better

Mon, 20/05/2019 - 15:30
Researchers are building 'spidey senses' into the shells of autonomous cars and drones so that they could detect and avoid objects better.
