Scientific discovery game significantly speeds up neuroscience research process

Mon, 24/04/2017 - 15:38
A new scientific discovery game called Mozak is allowing video gamers to significantly speed up reconstructing the intricate architecture of brain cells, a fundamental task in 21st century brain science. These citizen scientists have outperformed computers in tracing the intricate shapes of neurons, a first step in understanding how our brain circuitry works.

Space technologies improve surgeries back on earth

Sat, 22/04/2017 - 10:20
A novel surgical robotic system has been developed that provides tactile feedback and is capable of single-incision and natural orifice (incision-free) robotic surgery. The system minimizes surgical trauma and is safer than currently available robotic systems.

Gaming helps personalized therapy level up

Wed, 19/04/2017 - 10:08
Using game features in non-game contexts, computers can learn to build personalized mental- and physical-therapy programs that enhance individual motivation, according to engineers.

Robotic cheetah created

Wed, 19/04/2017 - 09:31
Engineers have developed a prototype cheetah robot. They have constructed a scaled-down robotic version of the fastest land animal in the world, with a view to replicating its movements. Relatively speaking, the robot moves using only about fifteen percent more energy than a real cheetah.

Helping students learn by sketching

Mon, 17/04/2017 - 08:48
New software Sketch Worksheets analyzes and provides feedback on student sketches, helping them learn multiple subjects.

Computer game helps scientists understand animal camouflage

Thu, 13/04/2017 - 08:46
Online computer games played by more than 30,000 people have helped scientists understand animal camouflage and color vision.

How to color a lizard: From biology to mathematics

Wed, 12/04/2017 - 13:23
Skin color patterns in animals arise from microscopic interactions among colored cells that obey equations, say investigators. Researchers report that a lizard acquires its adult skin color by changing the color of individual skin scales. The work shows that the 3-D geometry of the lizard's skin scales causes the Turing mechanism to transform into the von Neumann computing system.

New machine learning models can detect hate speech, violence from texts

Wed, 12/04/2017 - 09:12
The words we use and our writing styles can reveal information about our preferences, thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Using this information, a new study has developed machine learning models that can detect antisocial behaviors, such as hate speech and indications of violence, from texts.

Did you catch that? Robot's speed of light communication could protect you from danger

Tue, 11/04/2017 - 10:47
If you were monitoring a security camera and saw someone set down a backpack and walk away, you might pay special attention -- especially if you had been alerted to watch that particular person. According to researchers, this might be a job robots could do better than humans, by communicating at the speed of light and sharing images.

When industrial robots overheat: Continuous fitness check predicts potential machine faults

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 12:44
It keeps a constant eye on the condition of the machine, it carries out diagnostic analyses and it notifies the operator when a part needs to be replaced. The research team has developed an early warning system for industrial assembly, handling and packaging processes. Intelligent sensors continuously collect a wide array of measurement data from inside plant machinery and compare the signal patterns against those for normal operating conditions. If the system detects a difference in the patterns that indicates a potential fault, it immediately notifies the equipment operator about what remedial measures should be taken. This helps engineers to plan maintenance more effectively and protects them from unpleasant surprises and unexpected production losses.

In the future, we will control our mobiles using gestures

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 08:57
Being able to interact with mobile phones and other smart devices using gestures with our hands and fingers in three dimensions would make the digital world more like the real one. A new project will help develop this next-generation interface.

'Doctor' robot could help solve sports-concussion dilemma in rural America

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 21:56
From bustling cities to tiny farming communities, the bright lights of the local stadium are common beacons to the Friday night ritual of high school football. But these stadiums are commonly far from doctors who could quickly diagnose and treat head injuries that have brought so much scrutiny to the sport. A first-of-its-kind study shows the technology exists to ease this dilemma: By using a remote-controlled robot, a neurologist sitting hundreds of miles from the field can evaluate athletes for concussion with the same accuracy as on-site physicians.

Electronic synapses that can learn: Towards an artificial brain?

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 14:02
Researchers have created an artificial synapse capable of learning autonomously. They were also able to model the device, which is essential for developing more complex circuits.

Robot epigenetics: Adding complexity to embodied robot evolution

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 12:33
For the first time, researchers in the field of evolutionary robotics have used physically embodied robots to study epigenetic effects on robot evolution. The study confirms the great importance of taking epigenetic factors into account and provides a conceptual and physical methodology for this type of research.

Controlling soft robots using magnetic fields

Wed, 29/03/2017 - 10:24
Engineering researchers have made a fundamental advance in controlling so-called soft robots, using magnetic fields to remotely manipulate microparticle chains embedded in soft robotic devices. The researchers have already created several devices that make use of the new technique.

System better allots network bandwidth, for faster page loads

Tue, 28/03/2017 - 19:08
Researchers are presenting a new system for allocating bandwidth in data center networks. In tests, the system maintained the same overall data transmission rate -- or network 'throughput' -- as those currently in use, but it allocated bandwidth much more fairly, completing the download of all of a page's components up to four times as quickly.

Machines and the modern day labor market

Tue, 28/03/2017 - 13:27
Technological advances, particularly in machines that can perform complex tasks, have begun to dramatically change jobs and labor markets.

Can artificial intelligence detect fake news?

Mon, 27/03/2017 - 14:36
