Deep Learning predicts hematopoietic stem cell development

Tue, 21/02/2017 - 08:17
Autonomous driving, automatic speech recognition, and the game Go: Deep Learning is generating more and more public awareness. Scientists have now used it to determine the development of hematopoietic stem cells in advance. In a new article, they describe how their software predicts the future cell type based on microscopy images.

How to build a bio-bot: Researchers share design and development of biological machines

Sun, 19/02/2017 - 16:51
Creating tiny muscle-powered robots that can walk or swim by themselves -- or better yet, when prompted -- is more complicated than it looks.

Researchers design facial recognition system as less invasive way to track lemurs in wild

Fri, 17/02/2017 - 10:00
A team of researchers has developed a new computer-assisted recognition system that can identify individual lemurs in the wild by their facial characteristics and ultimately help to build a database for long-term research on lemur species.

Six-legged robots faster than nature-inspired gait

Fri, 17/02/2017 - 10:00
Researchers have discovered a faster and more efficient gait, never observed in nature, for six-legged robots walking on flat ground. Bio-inspired gaits -- less efficient for robots -- are used by real insects since they have adhesive pads to walk in three dimensions. The results provide novel approaches for roboticists and new information to biologists.

DNA computer brings 'intelligent drugs' a step closer

Fri, 17/02/2017 - 09:59
Researchers present a new method that should enable controlled drug delivery into the bloodstream using DNA computers. The team developed the first DNA computer capable of detecting several antibodies in the blood and performing subsequent calculations based on this input. This is an important step towards the development of smart, 'intelligent' drugs that may allow better control of medication with fewer side-effects and at lower cost.

GameSpace offers a playable visualization of 16,000 videogames

Tue, 14/02/2017 - 19:16
Finding information about videogames can now be a game in itself, thanks to researchers. They created GameSpace, a playable visualization of 16,000 videogames grouped according to common features and displayed in 3-dimensional space like a vast galaxy of games available for exploration.

Chip could make voice control ubiquitous in electronics

Mon, 13/02/2017 - 17:14
In anticipation of the age of voice-controlled electronics, researchers have built a low-power chip specialized for automatic speech recognition. Whereas a cellphone running speech-recognition software might require about 1 watt of power, the new chip requires between 0.2 and 10 milliwatts, depending on the number of words it has to recognize.

Taming complexity

Fri, 10/02/2017 - 13:09
Quantum systems consisting of many particles are a major challenge for physicists, since their behavior can be determined only with immense computational power. Physicists have now discovered an elegant way to simplify the problem.

Sticky gels turn insect-sized drones into artificial pollinators

Thu, 09/02/2017 - 13:35
As bees slip onto the endangered species lists, researchers in Japan are pollinating lilies with insect-sized drones. The undersides of these artificial pollinators are coated with horse hairs and an ionic gel just sticky enough to pick up pollen from one flower and deposit it onto another. The drones' designers are hopeful that their invention could someday help carry the burden that modern agricultural demand has put on colonies.

Human intuition added to planning algorithms

Tue, 07/02/2017 - 16:21
Researchers are trying to improve automated planners by giving them the benefit of human intuition. By encoding the strategies of high-performing human planners in a machine-readable form, they were able to improve the performance of planning algorithms by 10 to 15 percent on a challenging set of problems.

Watching computers think

Mon, 06/02/2017 - 08:41
Neural networks are commonly used today to analyze complex data -- for instance to find clues to illnesses in genetic information. Ultimately, though, no one knows how these networks actually work exactly. That is why researchers developed software that enables them to look into these black boxes and analyze how they function.
