Spiking tool improves artificially intelligent devices

Wed, 27/02/2019 - 15:58
The aptly named software package Whetstone enables neural computer networks to process information up to 100 times more efficiently than current standards, making possible an increased use of artificial intelligence in mobile phones, self-driving cars, and image interpretation.

Robots track moving objects with unprecedented precision

Tue, 19/02/2019 - 13:26
A novel system uses RFID tags to help robots home in on moving objects with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The system could enable greater collaboration and precision by robots working on packaging and assembly, and by swarms of drones carrying out search-and-rescue missions.

Artificial intelligence to boost Earth system science

Thu, 14/02/2019 - 11:55
A new study shows that artificial intelligence can substantially improve our understanding of the climate and the Earth system.

The first walking robot that moves without GPS

Wed, 13/02/2019 - 14:27
Desert ants are extraordinary solitary navigators. Researchers were inspired by these ants as they designed AntBot, the first walking robot that can explore its environment randomly and go home automatically, without GPS or mapping. This work opens up new strategies for navigation in autonomous vehicles and robotics.

Getting a grip on human-robot cooperation

Wed, 13/02/2019 - 14:26
There is a time when a successful cooperation between humans and robots has decisive importance: it is in the precise moment that one "actor" is required to hand an object to another "actor" and, therefore, to coordinate their actions accordingly. But how can we make this interaction more natural for robots?

Teaching self-driving cars to predict pedestrian movement

Tue, 12/02/2019 - 13:47
By zeroing in on humans' gait, body symmetry and foot placement, researchers are teaching self-driving cars to recognize and predict pedestrian movements with greater precision than current technologies.

Toward automated animal identification in wildlife research

Mon, 11/02/2019 - 14:00
A new program automatically detects regions of interest within images, alleviating a serious bottleneck in processing photos for wildlife research.

Psychology: Robot saved, people take the hit

Fri, 08/02/2019 - 11:53
To what extent are people prepared to show consideration for robots? A new study suggests that, under certain circumstances, some people are willing to endanger human lives -- out of concern for robots.

Citizen science projects have a surprising new partner, the computer

Wed, 06/02/2019 - 11:56
Data scientists and citizen science experts partnered with ecologists who often study wildlife populations by deploying camera traps. These camera traps are remote, independent devices, triggered by motion and infrared sensors that provide researchers with images of passing animals. The researchers built skill sets to help computers identify other animals, such as a deer or squirrel, with even fewer images.

Walking with Pokémon

Tue, 05/02/2019 - 11:53
In a recent study, researchers reveal how the Pokémon GO augmented reality game positively impact the physical activity in players over 40. The authors hope the findings will inform urban planners and game designers to inspire people to be more active.
