Piecework at the nano assembly line

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 12:58
Scientists have developed a novel electric propulsion technology for nanorobots. It allows molecular machines to move a hundred thousand times faster than with the biochemical processes used to date. This makes nanobots fast enough to do assembly line work in molecular factories.

Let's make a deal: Could AI compromise better than humans?

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 11:35
Researchers developed an algorithm that teaches machines not just to win games, but to cooperate and compromise -- and sometimes do a little trash-talking too.

Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 09:00
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

Engineers invent tiny vision processing chip for ultra-small smart vision systems and IoT applications

Thu, 18/01/2018 - 08:39
Novel video feature extractor uses 20 times less power than existing chips and could reduce the size of untethered vision systems down to the millimeter range.

AI 'scientist' finds that toothpaste ingredient may help fight drug-resistant malaria

Thu, 18/01/2018 - 08:34
An ingredient commonly found in toothpaste could be employed as an anti-malarial drug against strains of malaria parasite that have grown resistant to one of the currently used drugs. This discovery was aided by Eve, an artificially intelligent 'robot scientist.'

Small but fast: A miniaturized origami-inspired robot combines micrometer precision with high speed

Wed, 17/01/2018 - 14:13
The milliDelta robot integrates a new microfabrication technique with high-performance composite materials that can incorporate flexural joints and bending actuators, the milliDelta can operate with high speed, force, and micrometer precision, which make it compatible with a range of micromanipulation tasks in manufacturing and medicine.

Quick quick slow is no-go in crab courtship dance

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 22:25
Female fiddler crabs are sensitive to changes in the speed of a male's courtship display, significantly preferring displays that accelerate to those that are performed at a constant speed or slow down.

No evidence to support link between violent video games and behavior

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 13:13
Researchers have found no evidence to support the theory that video games make players more violent.

Computer-aided facial analysis helps diagnosis

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 11:06
In rare diseases, the computer-aided image analysis of patient portraits can facilitate and significantly improve diagnosis. This has been demonstrated on the basis of so-called GPI anchor deficiencies. Using data on genetic material, cell surface texture and typical facial features, researchers utilized artificial intelligence methods to simulate disease models.

Stingray soft robot could lead to bio-inspired robotics

Sat, 13/01/2018 - 09:23
Bioengineers have developed a tissue-based soft robot that mimics the biomechanics of a stingray. The new technology could lead to advances in bio-inspired robotics, regenerative medicine and medical diagnostics.

Robotic implants spur tissue regeneration inside the body

Wed, 10/01/2018 - 15:04
An implanted, programmable medical robot can gradually lengthen tubular organs by applying traction forces -- stimulating tissue growth in stunted organs without interfering with organ function or causing apparent discomfort, report researchers.

Making the internet of things possible with a new breed of 'memristors'

Wed, 10/01/2018 - 11:29
Easily printable, organic thin films can retain data for more than 10 years without power, work with low voltages -- and become the building block of future computers that mimic the human brain.

Artificial muscles power up with new gel-based robotics

Wed, 10/01/2018 - 10:10
Scientists are one step closer to artificial muscles. Orthotics have come a long way, yet innovation lapsed when it came to compensating for muscle power -- until now. A collaborative research team has designed a wearable robot to support a person's hip joint while walking.

Robotic weeders: To a farm near you?

Wed, 10/01/2018 - 08:01
The future of weeding is here, and it comes in the form of a robot. Specialty crops such as lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, and onions may be the first to benefit.

Using AI technology to chart immune cell receptor

Mon, 08/01/2018 - 10:13
Scientists have used a form of artificial intelligence to create a map that compares types of cellular receptors, the chemical "antennas" on the surface of immune system T-cells. Their experiments with lab-grown mouse and human T-cells suggest that people with cancer who have a greater variety of such receptors may respond better to immunotherapy drugs and vaccines.

Vision, sensory and motor testing could predict best batters in baseball

Mon, 08/01/2018 - 09:02
Researchers found players with higher scores on computer-based vision and motor tasks had better on-base percentages, more walks and fewer strikeouts -- collectively referred to as plate discipline -- compared to their peers.

'Will I look dumb?' Human-like virtual assistants can deter help-seeking

Thu, 04/01/2018 - 15:34
Virtual assistants have become increasingly sophisticated -- and more human-like -- since the days when Clippy asked if you needed help with your document. These assistants are intended to make programs and apps easier to use, but research suggests that human-like virtual assistants may actually deter some people from seeking help on tasks that are supposed to measure achievement. 

Virtual twin in ten minutes

Tue, 02/01/2018 - 10:38
Avatars -- virtual persons: A new system makes it possible to practice and improve motion sequences by providing individualized feedback in real time. The system is embodied by a virtual person acting as a coach. In addition, users see themselves as avatars -- virtual copies of themselves in the mirror of the virtual room. The creation of such personalized avatars used to take several days, but researchers have now developed an accelerated process.

Technique to allow AI to learn words in the flow of dialogue developed

Tue, 26/12/2017 - 13:46
A group of researchers has developed a new method for dialogue systems. This new method, lexical acquisition through implicit confirmation, is a method for a computer to acquire the category of an unknown word over multiple dialogues by confirming whether or not its predictions are correct in the flow of conversation.

Memristors power quick-learning neural network

Fri, 22/12/2017 - 09:03
A new type of neural network made with memristors can dramatically improve the efficiency of teaching machines to think like humans. The network, called a reservoir computing system, could predict words before they are said during conversation, and help predict future outcomes based on the present.
