Artificial intelligence controls robotic arm to pack boxes and cut costs

Thu, 27/06/2019 - 11:40
Computer scientists used artificial intelligence to control a robotic arm that provides a more efficient way to pack boxes, saving businesses time and money.

Safe, low-cost, modular, self-programming robots

Thu, 27/06/2019 - 11:39
Many work processes would be almost unthinkable today without robots. But robots operating in manufacturing facilities have often posed risks to workers because they are not responsive enough to their surroundings. To make it easier for people and robots to work in close proximity in the future, scientists have developed a new system: IMPROV.

3D-printed prosthetic hand can guess how you play rock, paper, scissors

Thu, 27/06/2019 - 11:39
A new 3D-printed prosthetic hand can learn the wearers' movement patterns to help amputee patients perform daily tasks, reports a new study.

Soft robots for all

Wed, 26/06/2019 - 16:03
Each year, soft robots gain new abilities. They can jump, squirm, and grip. Unlike hard robots, they can handle tomatoes without bruising the fruit, resurface unscathed after being run over by a car, and journey through radiation, disaster zones, and outer-space with few scars. Now, a new invention gives soft robots the ability to roll, undulate, sort, meter liquids, and swallow. Customizable designs could find use in labs, hospitals, and even inside the human body.

Robot arm tastes with engineered bacteria

Wed, 26/06/2019 - 16:03
A robotic gripping arm that uses engineered bacteria to 'taste' for a specific chemical has been developed by engineers. The gripper is a proof-of-concept for biologically-based soft robotics.

Social robots can benefit hospitalized children

Wed, 26/06/2019 - 12:50
A new study demonstrates, for the first time, that 'social robots' used in support sessions held in pediatric units at hospitals can lead to more positive emotions in sick children.

Computer scientists predict lightning and thunder with the help of artificial intelligence

Wed, 26/06/2019 - 12:49
Computer scientists are working on a system that is supposed to predict local thunderstorms more precisely than before.

Researchers teach robots what humans want

Mon, 24/06/2019 - 12:44
Researchers are developing better, faster ways of providing human guidance to autonomous robots.

Play games with no latency

Mon, 24/06/2019 - 11:10
One of the most challenging issues for game players looks to be resolved soon with the introduction of a zero-latency gaming environment. A team has now developed technology that helps game players maintain zero-latency performance. The new technology transforms the shapes of game design according to the amount of latency.

'Robot blood' powers machines for lengthy tasks

Thu, 20/06/2019 - 15:34
Researchers have created a system of circulating liquid -- 'robot blood' -- within robotic structures, to store energy and power robotic applications for sophisticated, long-duration tasks.

A miniature robot that could check colons for early signs of disease

Wed, 19/06/2019 - 14:25
Engineers have shown it is technically possible to guide a tiny robotic capsule inside the colon to take micro-ultrasound images. Known as a Sonopill, the device could one day replace the need for patients to undergo an endoscopic examination, where a semi-rigid scope is passed into the bowel - an invasive procedure that can be painful.

From one brain scan, more information for medical artificial intelligence

Wed, 19/06/2019 - 13:48
Researchers have devised a novel method to glean training information for machine-learning models, including those that can analyze medical images to help diagnose and treat brain conditions.

Researchers see around corners to detect object shapes

Wed, 19/06/2019 - 13:02
Computer vision researchers have demonstrated they can use special light sources and sensors to see around corners or through gauzy filters, enabling them to reconstruct the shapes of unseen objects. The researchers said this technique enables them to reconstruct images in great detail, including the relief of George Washington's profile on a US quarter.

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.
