AI beats professionals in six-player poker

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 14:13
An artificial intelligence program has defeated leading professionals in six-player no-limit Texas hold'em poker, the world's most popular form of poker.

The best of both worlds: How to solve real problems on modern quantum computers

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 12:26
Researchers have developed hybrid algorithms to run on size-limited quantum machines and have demonstrated them for practical applications.

New filter enhances robot vision on 6D pose estimation

Wed, 10/07/2019 - 13:19
Robots are good at making identical repetitive movements, such as a simple task on an assembly line. But they lack the ability to perceive objects as they move through an environment. A recent study has developed a filter to give robots greater spatial perception so they can manipulate objects and navigate through space more accurately.

Robot-ants that can jump, communicate with each other and work together

Wed, 10/07/2019 - 13:19
A team of researchers has developed tiny 10-gram robots that are inspired by ants: they can communicate with each other, assign roles among themselves and complete complex tasks together. These reconfigurable robots are simple in structure, yet they can jump and crawl to explore uneven surfaces.

Quantum sensor breakthrough using naturally occurring vibrations in artificial atoms

Wed, 10/07/2019 - 10:32
A team of scientists have discovered a new method that could be used to build quantum sensors with ultra-high precision.

Want to boost creativity? Try playing Minecraft

Mon, 08/07/2019 - 14:00
Video games that foster creative freedom can increase creativity under certain conditions, according to new research. The experimental study compared the effect of playing Minecraft, with or without instruction, to watching a TV show or playing a race car video game. Those given the freedom to play Minecraft without instruction were most creative.

Hate spoilers? This AI tool spots them for you

Mon, 08/07/2019 - 13:57
Researchers have have developed an AI-based system that can flag spoilers in online reviews of books and TV shows.

Simple 'smart' glass reveals the future of artificial vision

Mon, 08/07/2019 - 09:28
Engineers have devised a method to create pieces of 'smart' glass that can recognize images without requiring any sensors or circuits or power sources.

Using artificial intelligence to better predict severe weather

Tue, 02/07/2019 - 16:01
When forecasting weather, meteorologists use a number of models and data sources to track shapes and movements of clouds that could indicate severe storms. However, with increasingly expanding weather data sets and looming deadlines, it is nearly impossible for them to monitor all storm formations -- especially smaller-scale ones -- in real time.

Brain network evaluates robot likeability

Mon, 01/07/2019 - 14:46
Researchers have identified a network of brain regions that work together to determine if a robot is a worthy social partner, according to a new study.

Robots that are not quite life-like: 'Uncanny valley' in the brain

Mon, 01/07/2019 - 14:43
Scientists have identified mechanisms in the human brain that could help explain the phenomenon of the 'Uncanny Valley' -- the unsettling feeling we get from robots and virtual agents that are too human-like. They have also shown that some people respond more adversely to human-like agents than others.

Going the distance: Brain cells for 3D vision discovered

Fri, 28/06/2019 - 12:04
Scientists have discovered neurons in insect brains that compute 3D distance and direction. Understanding these could help vision in robots.

New AI tool captures top players' strategies in RNA video game

Thu, 27/06/2019 - 14:33
A new artificial-intelligence tool captures strategies used by top players of an internet-based videogame to design new RNA molecules.

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.
