Computers learn to understand humans better by modelling them

Wed, 03/05/2017 - 09:30
Despite significant breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, it has been notoriously hard for computers to understand why a user behaves the way s/he does. Now researchers report that computers are able to learn to explain the behavior of individuals by tracking their glances and movements.

Deep learning helps scientists keep track of cell's inner parts

Tue, 02/05/2017 - 11:25
High throughput screens of image-based data allow a direct view of proteins' whereabouts in the cell but the lack of fast and accurate analysis tools has been a bottleneck. Scientists reveal DeepLoc, a deep learning algorithm that is faster and more accurate than the human eye and brings analysis time down from months to hours.

Device allows users to manipulate 3-D virtual objects more quickly

Mon, 01/05/2017 - 09:43
Researchers have developed a user-friendly, inexpensive controller for manipulating virtual objects in a computer program in three dimensions. The device allows users to manipulate objects more quickly -- with less lag time -- than existing technologies.

Artificial Intelligence Shows Potential to Fight Blindness

Thu, 27/04/2017 - 19:07
Researchers have found a way to use artificial intelligence to fight a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes.

Can early experiences with computers, robots increase STEM interest among young girls?

Thu, 27/04/2017 - 13:07
Girls start believing they aren't good at math, science and even computers at a young age -- but providing fun STEM activities at school and home may spark interest and inspire confidence, suggests a new study.

How state-of-the-art camera that behaves like the human eye could benefit robots and smart devices

Thu, 27/04/2017 - 11:09
Experts will explore how an artificial vision system inspired by the human eye could be used by robots of the future -- opening up new possibilities for securing footage from deep forests, war zones and even distant planets.

Artificial intelligence may help diagnose tuberculosis in remote areas

Tue, 25/04/2017 - 12:49
Researchers are training artificial intelligence models to identify tuberculosis (TB) on chest X-rays, which may help screening and evaluation efforts in TB-prevalent areas with limited access to radiologists, according to a new study.

New interface allows more efficient, faster technique to remotely operate robots

Tue, 25/04/2017 - 12:43
A new interface allows users to simply point and click on an item, then choose a grasp, to control a robot remotely.

Click-on arm prosthesis controlled by patient's thoughts

Tue, 25/04/2017 - 09:30
Last Friday, the first patient in the Netherlands received his click-on robotic arm. By means of a new technique, this robotic arm is clicked directly onto the bone. A unique characteristic of this prosthesis is that it can be controlled by the patient's own thoughts. Worldwide, there are only a handful of patients with such a prosthesis.

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.
