Printable device points toward sensor-laden robot skin

Thu, 23/03/2017 - 10:58
In this age of smartphones and tablet computers, touch-sensitive surfaces are everywhere. They're also brittle, as people with cracked phone screens everywhere can attest. Covering a robot -- or an airplane or a bridge -- with sensors will require a technology that is both flexible and cost-effective to manufacture in bulk. A team of researchers thinks that 3-D printing could be the answer.

Controlling turtle motion with human thought

Thu, 23/03/2017 - 08:50
Researchers have developed a technology that can remotely control an animal's movement with human thought.

Quadruped robot exhibits spontaneous changes in step with speed

Wed, 22/03/2017 - 09:24
A research group has demonstrated that by changing only its parameter related to speed, a quadruped robot can spontaneously change its steps.

People afraid of robots are much more likely to fear losing their jobs and suffer anxiety-related mental health issues, study finds

Tue, 21/03/2017 - 12:50
“Technophobes” — people who fear robots, artificial intelligence and new technology that they don’t understand — are much more likely to be afraid of losing their jobs due to technology and to suffer anxiety-related mental health issues, a researcher says.

New brain-inspired cybersecurity system detects 'bad apples' 100 times faster

Tue, 21/03/2017 - 12:25
The Neuromorphic Cyber Microscope can look for the complex patterns that indicate specific 'bad apples,' all while using less electricity than a standard 60-watt light bulb, due to its brain-inspired design.

People remain calm as the world ends, video game study suggests

Mon, 20/03/2017 - 16:23
As the world ends, will you lock arms and sing 'Kumbayah' or embark on a path of law-breaking, anti-social behavior? A new study, based upon the virtual actions of more than 80,000 players of the role-playing video game ArcheAge, suggests you'll be singing. The study found that despite some violent acts, most players tended toward behavior that was helpful to others as their virtual world came to an end.

'Tree-on-a-chip' passively pumps water for days

Mon, 20/03/2017 - 14:38
Engineers have created a 'tree-on-a-chip' -- a microfluidic pump inspired by the way trees and plants circulate nutrients. The chip pumps water for days, at constant rates that could power small robots.

Using big data to analyze images, video better than the human brain

Mon, 20/03/2017 - 09:04
Improving traffic safety, better health services and environmental benefits: Big Data experts see a wide range of possibilities for advanced image analysis and recognition technology.

New flexible sensor holds potential for foldable touch screens

Wed, 15/03/2017 - 14:07
Picture a tablet that you can fold into the size of a phone and put away in your pocket, or an artificial skin that can sense your body's movements and vital signs. A new, inexpensive sensor could help make advanced devices like these a reality.

World’s first 'lip password' utilizes a user's lip motions to create password

Mon, 13/03/2017 - 11:07
Scientists have invented a new technology entitled “lip motion password” (lip password) which utilizes a person’s lip motions to create a password.

Computer linguists are developing an intelligent system aid for air traffic controllers

Wed, 08/03/2017 - 11:48
Human lives depend on their decisions, and psychological stress levels are high. An average radio contact takes 3.5 to 11.3 seconds, during which the air traffic controller checks in with the pilot, examines the radar screens and gives out new instructions. The current technical support systems typically lack the ability to understand and process these brief radio exchanges.

Artificial intelligence virtual consultant helps deliver better patient care

Wed, 08/03/2017 - 11:48
Interventional radiologists are using technology found in self-driving cars to power a machine learning application that helps guide patients' interventional radiology care.

Robot uses social feedback to fetch objects intelligently

Mon, 06/03/2017 - 15:17
By enabling them to ask a question when they're confused, an algorithm helps robots get better at fetching objects, an important task for future robot assistants.

Aging faces could increase security risks

Thu, 02/03/2017 - 11:58
Biometrics experts set out to investigate what extent facial aging affects the performance of automatic facial recognition systems. They found that 99 percent of the face images can still be recognized up to six years later.

Shape-shifting molecular robots respond to DNA signals

Thu, 02/03/2017 - 09:08
A molecular robot consisting of biomolecules, such as DNA and protein, has now been developed by a team of scientists.

Mathematician breaks down how to defend against quantum computing attacks

Tue, 28/02/2017 - 18:53
Newly written code, called the Generalized Knapsack Code, could thwart hackers armed with next generation quantum computers.

New software allows for 'decoding digital brain data'

Fri, 24/02/2017 - 13:39
New software allows for 'decoding digital brain data' to reveal how neural activity gives rise to learning, memory and other cognitive functions. The software can be used in real time during an fMRI brain scan.

Computer bots are more like humans than you might think, having fights lasting years

Thu, 23/02/2017 - 14:21
Bots appear to behave differently in culturally distinct online environments. A new paper says the findings are a warning to those using artificial intelligence for building autonomous vehicles, cyber security systems or for managing social media.

Cameras can steal data from computer hard drive LED lights, study finds

Wed, 22/02/2017 - 14:57
Researchers have found that once malware is on a computer, it can indirectly control a hard-drive (HDD) activity LED, turning it on and off rapidly (thousands of flickers per second) -- a rate that exceeds the human visual perception capabilities. As a result, highly sensitive information can be encoded and leaked over the fast LED signals, which are received and recorded by remote cameras or light sensors.

Artificial synapse for neural networks

Tue, 21/02/2017 - 14:20
A new organic artificial synapse could support computers that better recreate the way the human brain processes information. It could also lead to improvements in brain-machine technologies.
