System of quadcopters that fly and drive suggest another approach to developing flying cars

Mon, 26/06/2017 - 12:43
Being able to both walk and take flight is typical in nature many birds, insects, and other animals can do both. If we could program robots with similar versatility, it would open up many possibilities: Imagine machines that could fly into construction areas or disaster zones that aren't near roads and then squeeze through tight spaces on the ground to transport objects or rescue people.

Recognition technology a step closer to use in courtroom

Wed, 21/06/2017 - 16:59
Brain-based memory recognition technology may be one step closer to court. A report suggests American jurors can appropriately integrate the evidence in their evaluations of criminal defendants, which could ultimately lead to an additional expert witness on the stand.

Face recognition system 'K-Eye'

Thu, 15/06/2017 - 10:07
Scientists have developed a semiconductor chip, CNNP (CNN Processor), that runs AI algorithms with ultra-low power, and K-Eye, a face recognition system using CNNP.

Robot uses deep learning and big data to write and play its own music

Wed, 14/06/2017 - 12:04
A marimba-playing robot with four arms and eight sticks is writing and playing its own compositions in a lab in the USA. The pieces are generated using artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Learning with light: New system allows optical 'deep learning'

Mon, 12/06/2017 - 15:35
Computer scientists have come up with a new approach to complex computations, using light instead of electricity. The approach could vastly improve the speed and efficiency of such learning systems.

Comparing student performance on paper-and-pencil and computer-based-tests

Mon, 12/06/2017 - 11:57
Based on a study of more than 30,000 elementary, middle, and high school students conducted in winter 2015–16, researchers found that elementary and middle school students scored lower on a computer-based test that did not allow them to return to previous items than on two comparable tests—paper- or computer-based—that allowed them to skip, review, and change previous responses.

Smiling during victory could hurt future chances of cooperation

Fri, 09/06/2017 - 09:12
Researchers have studied how reacting with a smile affects game outcomes, hoping one day to empower virtual humans with this knowledge.

How the brain recognizes what the eye sees

Thu, 08/06/2017 - 14:56
New work outlining the brain's visual process could improve self-driving cars and point to therapies for sensory impairment, suggest investigators.

Self-learning robot hands

Thu, 08/06/2017 - 12:39
A new system that learns how to grasp objects has been developed by a team of researchers.

Combatting weeds with lasers

Wed, 07/06/2017 - 09:41
A robot automatically identifies weeds in a field and combats them with a short laser pulse. Sustainable agriculture, which avoids the use of herbicides as far as possible, could benefit from this smart idea.

Tactile sensor gives robots new capabilities

Mon, 05/06/2017 - 15:02
Eight years ago, researchers unveiled a new sensor technology, called GelSight, that uses physical contact with an object to provide a remarkably detailed 3-D map of its surface. Now, by mounting GelSight sensors on the grippers of robotic arms, two teams have given robots greater sensitivity and dexterity.

Meet the most nimble-fingered robot ever built

Thu, 01/06/2017 - 19:27
Roboticists have a built a robot that can pick up and move unfamiliar, real-world objects with a 99 percent success rate.

Scientists slash computations for deep learning

Thu, 01/06/2017 - 13:56
Computer scientists have adapted a widely used technique for rapid data-lookup to slash the amount of computation -- and thus energy and time -- required for 'deep learning.'

Artificial intelligence predicts patient lifespans

Thu, 01/06/2017 - 12:41
A computer's ability to predict a patient's lifespan simply by looking at images of their organs is a step closer to becoming a reality, thanks to new research.

Interactive tool helps novices and experts make custom robots

Tue, 30/05/2017 - 11:50
A new interactive design tool enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3-D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.

Shedding light on how humans walk, with robots

Wed, 24/05/2017 - 14:07
Patients walking in clinical robotic suits do not modify their gait in response to forces that are meant to alter the height of their steps, though they do respond to alterations in step length, providing insight into how the human brain executes walking and improving rehabilitative robot design, researchers have discovered.

Parasitic robot system for waypoint navigation of turtle

Tue, 23/05/2017 - 08:35
Scientists have presented a hybrid animal-robot interaction called "the parasitic robot system," that imitates the nature relationship between parasites and host.

Next-gen computing: Memristor chips that see patterns over pixels

Tue, 23/05/2017 - 08:32
Inspired by how mammals see, a new 'memristor' computer circuit prototype has the potential to process complex data, such as images and video orders of magnitude, faster and with much less power than today's most advanced systems.
