Do video games with shooting affect kids' behavior with real guns?

Fri, 31/05/2019 - 14:31
A randomized clinical trial in a university laboratory examined the effects of video games with weapons on children's behavior when they found a real gun.

'Slothbot' takes a leisurely approach to environmental monitoring

Thu, 30/05/2019 - 10:12
For environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, infrastructure maintenance and certain security applications, slow and energy efficient can be better than fast and always needing a recharge. That's where 'SlothBot' comes in.

Tempted to cheat on a written exam? Artificial intelligence is 90% certain to nab you

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 14:50
Combining big data with artificial intelligence has allowed researchers to determine whether you wrote your assignment or whether a ghostwriter penned it for you -- with nearly 90 percent accuracy.

Outsmarting deep fakes: AI-driven imaging system protects authenticity

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 13:11
To thwart sophisticated deep fake methods of altering photos and video, researchers have devised a technique to authenticate images throughout the entire pipeline, from acquisition to delivery, using artificial intelligence.

Sensor-packed glove learns signatures of the human grasp

Wed, 29/05/2019 - 13:11
Wearing a sensor-packed glove while handling a variety of objects, researchers have compiled a massive dataset that enables an AI system to recognize objects through touch alone. The information could be leveraged to help robots identify and manipulate objects, and may aid in prosthetics design.

Better together: human and robot co-workers

Fri, 24/05/2019 - 11:35
More and more processes are being automated. Self-driving delivery vehicles are finding their way into many areas. However, an interdisciplinary research team has observed that cooperation between humans and machines can work much better than just human or just robot teams alone.

Nature inspires a novel new form of computing, using light

Fri, 24/05/2019 - 08:16
Researchers have developed a simple and highly novel form of computing by shining patterned bands of light and shadow through different facets of a polymer cube and reading the combined results that emerge.

Bringing human-like reasoning to driverless car navigation

Thu, 23/05/2019 - 13:02
With aims of bringing more human-like reasoning to autonomous vehicles, researchers have created a system that uses only simple maps and visual data to enable driverless cars to navigate routes in new, complex environments.

Big energy savings for tiny machines

Wed, 22/05/2019 - 15:31
Physicists demonstrate for the first time a strategy for manipulating the trillions of tiny molecular nanomachines inside us that work to keep us alive, to maximize efficiency and conserve energy. The breakthrough could impact numerous fields, including creating more efficient computer chips and solar cells for energy generation.

Soft, social robot brings coziness to homes, and classrooms

Wed, 22/05/2019 - 14:19
A new social robot that can be customized with handcrafted material, such as wood and wool, brings simplicity and fun to home robotics -- and will soon be used to help teach math to fourth graders.

With a hop, a skip and a jump, high-flying robot leaps through obstacles with ease

Tue, 21/05/2019 - 16:24
First unveiled in 2016, Salto the jumping robot stands at little less than a foot, but can vault over three times its height in a single bound. Now researchers have equipped the robot with a slew of new skills, giving it the ability to bounce in place like a pogo stick and jump through obstacle courses like an agility dog. Salto can even take short jaunts outside, powered by radio controller.

New framework improves performance of deep neural networks

Tue, 21/05/2019 - 12:45
Researchers have developed a new framework for building deep neural networks via grammar-guided network generators. In experimental testing, the new networks -- called AOGNets -- have outperformed existing state-of-the-art frameworks, including the widely used ResNet and DenseNet systems, in visual recognition tasks.

'Spider-like senses' could help autonomous machines see better

Mon, 20/05/2019 - 15:30
Researchers are building 'spidey senses' into the shells of autonomous cars and drones so that they could detect and avoid objects better.

Dog-like robot made by students jumps, flips and trots

Mon, 20/05/2019 - 12:58
Students developed a dog-like robot that can navigate tough terrain -- and they want you to make one too.

Artificial intelligence becomes life-long learner with new framework

Mon, 20/05/2019 - 11:56
Scientists have developed a new framework for deep neural networks that allows artificial intelligence systems to better learn new tasks while forgetting less of what they have learned regarding previous tasks.

Toy transformers and real-life whales inspire biohybrid robot

Fri, 17/05/2019 - 11:51
Researchers create a remote-controlled soft robot that can transform itself to conduct targeted drug delivery against cancer cells.

Helping robots remember: Hyperdimensional computing theory could change the way AI works

Wed, 15/05/2019 - 16:54
A new article introduces a new way of combining perception and motor commands using the so-called hyperdimensional computing theory, which could fundamentally alter and improve the basic artificial intelligence (AI) task of sensorimotor representation -- how agents like robots translate what they sense into what they do.

New AI sees like a human, filling in the blanks

Wed, 15/05/2019 - 14:40
Computer scientists have taught an artificial intelligence agent how to do something that usually only humans can do -- take a few quick glimpses around and infer its whole environment, a skill necessary for the development of effective search-and-rescue robots that one day can improve the effectiveness of dangerous missions.

Robot therapists need rules

Wed, 15/05/2019 - 11:03
Interactions with artificial intelligence (AI) will become an increasingly common aspect of our lives. A team has now completed the first study of how 'embodied AI' can help treat mental illness. Their conclusion: Important ethical questions of this technology remain unanswered. There is urgent need for action on the part of governments, professional associations and researchers.

Speech recognition technology is not a solution for poor readers

Mon, 13/05/2019 - 11:22
Could artificial intelligence be a solution for people who cannot read well (functional illiterates) or those who cannot read at all (complete illiterates)? According to psycholinguists, speech technology should never replace learning how to read. Researchers argue that literacy leads to a better understanding of speech because good readers are good at predicting words.
