Lightweight robots harvest cucumbers

Fri, 02/02/2018 - 12:39
Automation-intensive sectors such as the automotive industry are not the only ones to rely on robots. In more and more agricultural settings, automation systems are superseding strenuous manual labor. Scientists are now developing and testing a dual-arm robot for the automated harvesting of cucumbers.

New algorithms to train robots

Fri, 02/02/2018 - 12:37
Researchers have developed new techniques for robots or computer programs to learn how to perform tasks by interacting with a human instructor.

Quantum algorithm could help AI think faster

Fri, 02/02/2018 - 11:26
One of the ways that computers 'think' is by analyzing relationships within large sets of data. An international team has shown that quantum computers can do one such analysis faster than classical computers, for a wider array of data types than was previously expected.

Letting molecular robots swarm like birds

Wed, 31/01/2018 - 09:56
A team of researchers has developed DNA-assisted molecular robots that autonomously swarm in response to chemical and physical signals, paving the way for developing future nano-machines.

Applying machine learning to the universe's mysteries

Tue, 30/01/2018 - 12:36
Physicists have demonstrated that computers are ready to tackle the universe's greatest mysteries -- they used neural networks to perform a deep dive into data simulating the subatomic particle soup that may have existed just microseconds after the big bang.

Superconducting synapse may be missing piece for 'artificial brains'

Fri, 26/01/2018 - 16:38
Researchers have built a superconducting switch that 'learns' like a biological system and could connect processors and store memories in future computers operating like the human brain.

Drones learn to navigate autonomously by imitating cars and bicycles

Tue, 23/01/2018 - 10:18
A new algorithm allows drones to fly completely by themselves through the streets of a city and in indoor environments. The algorithm had to learn traffic rules and adapt training examples from cyclists and car drivers.

Engineers design artificial synapse for 'brain-on-a-chip' hardware

Mon, 22/01/2018 - 15:08
Engineers have designed an artificial synapse in such a way that they can precisely control the strength of an electric current flowing across it, similar to the way ions flow between neurons. The team has built a small chip with artificial synapses, made from silicon germanium. In simulations, the researchers found that the chip and its synapses could be used to recognize samples of handwriting, with 95 percent accuracy.

Speech analysis software predicted psychosis in at-risk patients with up to 83 percent accuracy

Mon, 22/01/2018 - 10:40
Computer-based analyses of speech transcripts obtained from interviews with at-risk youths were able to predict which youths would later develop psychosis within two years, with an accuracy of up to 83 percent. In two independent cohorts of young people at risk for psychosis, a disturbance in the flow of meaning when speaking, otherwise known as being tangential or going off track, predicted who would later develop psychosis.

Piecework at the nano assembly line

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 12:58
Scientists have developed a novel electric propulsion technology for nanorobots. It allows molecular machines to move a hundred thousand times faster than with the biochemical processes used to date. This makes nanobots fast enough to do assembly line work in molecular factories.

Let's make a deal: Could AI compromise better than humans?

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 11:35
Researchers developed an algorithm that teaches machines not just to win games, but to cooperate and compromise -- and sometimes do a little trash-talking too.

Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

Fri, 19/01/2018 - 09:00
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

Engineers invent tiny vision processing chip for ultra-small smart vision systems and IoT applications

Thu, 18/01/2018 - 08:39
Novel video feature extractor uses 20 times less power than existing chips and could reduce the size of untethered vision systems down to the millimeter range.

AI 'scientist' finds that toothpaste ingredient may help fight drug-resistant malaria

Thu, 18/01/2018 - 08:34
An ingredient commonly found in toothpaste could be employed as an anti-malarial drug against strains of malaria parasite that have grown resistant to one of the currently used drugs. This discovery was aided by Eve, an artificially intelligent 'robot scientist.'

Small but fast: A miniaturized origami-inspired robot combines micrometer precision with high speed

Wed, 17/01/2018 - 14:13
The milliDelta robot integrates a new microfabrication technique with high-performance composite materials that can incorporate flexural joints and bending actuators, the milliDelta can operate with high speed, force, and micrometer precision, which make it compatible with a range of micromanipulation tasks in manufacturing and medicine.

Quick quick slow is no-go in crab courtship dance

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 22:25
Female fiddler crabs are sensitive to changes in the speed of a male's courtship display, significantly preferring displays that accelerate to those that are performed at a constant speed or slow down.

No evidence to support link between violent video games and behavior

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 13:13
Researchers have found no evidence to support the theory that video games make players more violent.

Computer-aided facial analysis helps diagnosis

Tue, 16/01/2018 - 11:06
In rare diseases, the computer-aided image analysis of patient portraits can facilitate and significantly improve diagnosis. This has been demonstrated on the basis of so-called GPI anchor deficiencies. Using data on genetic material, cell surface texture and typical facial features, researchers utilized artificial intelligence methods to simulate disease models.
