Psychology: Robot saved, people take the hit

Fri, 08/02/2019 - 11:53
To what extent are people prepared to show consideration for robots? A new study suggests that, under certain circumstances, some people are willing to endanger human lives -- out of concern for robots.

Citizen science projects have a surprising new partner, the computer

Wed, 06/02/2019 - 11:56
Data scientists and citizen science experts partnered with ecologists who often study wildlife populations by deploying camera traps. These camera traps are remote, independent devices, triggered by motion and infrared sensors that provide researchers with images of passing animals. The researchers built skill sets to help computers identify other animals, such as a deer or squirrel, with even fewer images.

Walking with Pokémon

Tue, 05/02/2019 - 11:53
In a recent study, researchers reveal how the Pokémon GO augmented reality game positively impact the physical activity in players over 40. The authors hope the findings will inform urban planners and game designers to inspire people to be more active.

Robot combines vision and touch to learn the game of Jenga

Thu, 31/01/2019 - 10:10
Machine-learning approach could help robots assemble cellphones and other small parts in a manufacturing line.

Atari master: New AI smashes Google DeepMind in video game challenge

Thu, 31/01/2019 - 09:14
A new breed of algorithms has mastered Atari video games 10 times faster than state-of-the-art AI, with a breakthrough approach to problem solving.

Most people overlook artificial intelligence despite flawless advice

Wed, 30/01/2019 - 16:16
A team of researchers recently discovered that most people overlook artificial intelligence despite flawless advice. AI-like systems will be an integral part of the Army's strategy over the next five years, so system designers will need to start getting a bit more creative in order to appeal to users.

Engineers translate brain signals directly into speech

Tue, 29/01/2019 - 08:19
In a scientific first, neuroengineers have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. This breakthrough, which harnesses the power of speech synthesizers and artificial intelligence, could lead to new ways for computers to communicate directly with the brain.

Defending against cyberattacks by giving attackers 'false hope'

Mon, 28/01/2019 - 14:24
'The quarantine is a decoy that behaves very similar to the real compromised target to keep the attacker assuming that the attack is still succeeding. In a typical cyberattack the more deeply attackers go in the system, the more they have the ability to go many directions. It becomes like a Whack-A-Mole game for those defending the system. Our strategy simply changes the game, but makes the attackers think they are being successful.'

Self-driving cars, robots: Identifying AI 'blind spots'

Fri, 25/01/2019 - 09:42
A novel model identifies instances in which autonomous systems have 'learned' from training examples that don't match what's actually happening in the real world. Engineers could use this model to improve the safety of artificial intelligence systems, such as driverless vehicles and autonomous robots.

The first tendril-like soft robot able to climb

Thu, 24/01/2019 - 10:53
Researchers have made the first soft robot mimicking plant tendrils: it is able to curl and climb, using the same physical principles determining water transport in plants. In the future this tendril-like soft robot could inspire the development of wearable devices, such as soft braces, able to actively morph their shape.

Increasing skepticism against robots

Tue, 22/01/2019 - 10:45
In Europe, people are more reserved regarding robots than they were five years ago.

Artificial intelligence can dramatically cut time needed to process abnormal chest X-rays

Tue, 22/01/2019 - 08:44
New research has found that a novel Artificial Intelligence (AI) system can dramatically reduce the time needed to ensure that abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings will receive an expert radiologist opinion sooner, cutting the average delay from 11 days to less than three days. Chest X-rays are routinely performed to diagnose and monitor a wide range of conditions affecting the lungs, heart, bones, and soft tissues.

Smart microrobots that can adapt to their surroundings

Fri, 18/01/2019 - 14:55
Scientists have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery.

Measuring ability of artificial intelligence to learn is difficult

Thu, 17/01/2019 - 09:26
Organizations looking to benefit from the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution should be cautious about putting all their eggs in one basket, a study has found.

'Ambidextrous' robots could dramatically speed e-commerce

Wed, 16/01/2019 - 14:06
Engineers present a novel, 'ambidextrous' approach to grasping a diverse range of object shapes without training.

Smart home tests first elder care robot

Mon, 14/01/2019 - 13:09
Researchers believe the robot, nicknamed RAS, could eventually help those with dementia and other limitations continue to live independently in their own homes.

Artificial bug eyes

Wed, 09/01/2019 - 09:09
Single lens eyes, like those in humans and many other animals, can create sharp images, but the compound eyes of insects and crustaceans have an edge when it comes to peripheral vision, light sensitivity and motion detection. That's why scientists are developing artificial compound eyes to give sight to autonomous vehicles and robots, among other applications. Now, a new report describes the preparation of bioinspired artificial compound eyes using a simple low-cost approach.

Can artificial intelligence tell a teapot from a golf ball?

Mon, 07/01/2019 - 13:12
How smart is the form of artificial intelligence known as deep learning computer networks, and how closely do these machines mimic the human brain? They have improved greatly in recent years, but still have a long way to go, according to a team of cognitive psychologists.
