Machine learning will change jobs

Thu, 21/12/2017 - 14:30
Machine learning computer systems, which get better with experience, are poised to transform the economy much as steam engines and electricity have in the past. They can outperform people in a number of tasks, though they are unlikely to replace people in all jobs, suggest researchers.

Quantum coupling

Thu, 21/12/2017 - 12:27
Physicists have linked atoms and superconductors in a key step towards new hardware for quantum computers and networks.

Robot drummer posts pictures of jamming sessions on Facebook

Wed, 20/12/2017 - 12:20
Scientists have developed a drumming robot that plays along with human keyboard players and posts pictures of the sessions on Facebook.

Inner workings of victorious AI revealed by researchers

Mon, 18/12/2017 - 09:10
Libratus, an artificial intelligence that defeated four top professional poker players in no-limit Texas Hold'em, uses a three-pronged approach to master a game with more decision points than atoms in the universe, researchers report. They explain how their AI broke the game into computationally manageable parts and fixed potential weaknesses in its strategy during the competition.

Computer systems predict objects' responses to physical forces

Thu, 14/12/2017 - 15:33
New research examines the fundamental cognitive abilities that an intelligent agent requires to navigate the world: discerning distinct objects and inferring how they respond to physical forces.

Software enables robots to be controlled in virtual reality

Thu, 14/12/2017 - 14:45
Researchers have developed software that lets users control robots over the internet with off-the-shelf virtual reality hardware.

Engineers program tiny robots to move, think like insects

Thu, 14/12/2017 - 14:19
While engineers have had success building tiny, insect-like robots, programming them to behave autonomously like real insects continues to present technical challenges. Engineers have recently been experimenting with a new type of programming that mimics the way an insect’s brain works, which could soon have people wondering if that fly on the wall is actually a fly.

Tailgating doesn't get you there faster: Study

Thu, 14/12/2017 - 09:23
We've all experienced "phantom traffic jams" that arise without any apparent cause. Researchers recently showed that we'd have fewer if we made one small change to how we drive: no more tailgating.

Researchers use WWII code-breaking techniques to interpret brain data

Wed, 13/12/2017 - 12:47
A team of researchers has used cryptographic techniques to decode the activity of motor neurons. Their approach has allowed them to predict, from brain data, and with only generic knowledge of typical movements, which direction monkeys will move their arms.

Gecko adhesion technology moves closer to industrial uses

Wed, 13/12/2017 - 09:56
While human-made devices inspired by gecko feet have emerged in recent years, enabling their wearers to slowly scale a glass wall, the possible applications of gecko-adhesion technology go far beyond Spiderman-esque antics. A researcher is looking into how the technology could be applied in a high-precision industrial setting, such as in robot arms used in manufacturing computer chips.

Engineers create artificial graphene in a nanofabricated semiconductor structure

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 18:41
Experts at manipulating matter at the nanoscale have made an important breakthrough in physics and materials science. They have engineered "artificial graphene" by recreating, for the first time, the electronic structure of graphene in a semiconductor device.

Insights on fast cockroaches can help teach robots to walk

Fri, 08/12/2017 - 09:55
Scientists show for the first time that fast insects can change their gait -- like a mammal's transition from trot to gallop. These new insights could contribute to making the locomotion of robots more energy efficient.

New algorithm repairs corrupted digital images in one step

Tue, 05/12/2017 - 14:48
Computer scientists have designed a new algorithm that incorporates artificial neural networks to simultaneously apply a wide range of fixes to corrupted digital images. The researchers tested their algorithm by taking high-quality, uncorrupted images, purposely introducing severe degradations, then using the algorithm to repair the damage. In many cases, the algorithm outperformed competitors' techniques, very nearly returning the images to their original state.

New robots can see into their future

Mon, 04/12/2017 - 16:23
Researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before. In the future, this technology could help self-driving cars anticipate future events on the road and produce more intelligent robotic assistants in homes, but the initial prototype focuses on learning simple manual skills entirely from autonomous play.

How can humans keep the upper hand on artificial intelligence?

Mon, 04/12/2017 - 09:49
Researchers have shown how human operators can maintain control over a system comprising several agents that are guided by artificial intelligence.

Helping hands guide robots as they learn

Mon, 04/12/2017 - 09:49
Researchers help humans and robots collaborate by enabling real-time interactions that modify a robot's path to its goal. The study will help robots make the transition from structured factory floors to interactive tasks like rehabilitation, surgery and training programs in which environments are less predictable.

Robot learning improves student engagement

Fri, 01/12/2017 - 10:40
Online students who use the innovative robots feel more engaged and connected to the instructor and students in the classroom, the first-ever study of a pioneering robot-learning course shows.

With 'material robotics,' intelligent products won't even look like robots

Wed, 29/11/2017 - 14:33
Robots as inconspicuous as they are ubiquitous represent the vision of researchers in the new and burgeoning field of material robotics.

Artificial muscles give soft robots superpowers

Mon, 27/11/2017 - 15:21
Researchers have created origami-inspired artificial muscles that add strength to soft robots, allowing them to lift objects that are up to 1,000 times their own weight using only air or water pressure. Consisting of an inner 'skeleton' folded into a specific pattern and enclosed within a plastic or fabric 'skin' bag, these muscles can perform a greater variety of tasks and are safer than other models.
