Planning algorithm also generates contingency plans

Tue, 16/02/2016 - 18:14
Planning algorithms are widely used in logistics and control. They can help schedule flights and bus routes, guide autonomous robots, and determine control policies for the power grid, among other things. Researchers have now developed a planning algorithm that also generates contingency plans, should the initial plan prove too risky. It also identifies the conditions -- say, sensor readings or delays incurred -- that should trigger a switch to a particular contingency plan.

When machines can do any job, what will humans do?

Sat, 13/02/2016 - 18:59
Computer scientists expects that within 30 years, machines will be capable of doing almost any job that humans can. In anticipation of this development, he is asking his colleagues, "What will humans do?"

Using stories to teach human values to artificial agents

Fri, 12/02/2016 - 20:02
Artificial intelligence technique Quixote teaches 'value alignment' to robots by training them to read stories, learn acceptable sequences of events and understand successful ways to behave in human societies.

Well-known game theory scenario solved

Thu, 11/02/2016 - 19:00
A team of computer scientists is the first to solve a game theory scenario that has vexed researchers for nearly a century. The game, known as 'Colonel Blotto,' has been used to analyze the potential outcomes of elections and other similar two-party conflicts since its invention in 1921. Until now, however, the game has been of limited use because it lacked a definitive solution.

Cockroach inspires robot squeezes through cracks

Mon, 08/02/2016 - 18:29
Ever wonder how roaches are able to get into anything, no matter how tight the seams? Biologists have now shown that the American cockroach can flatten its body to one-fifth normal running height to squeeze through cracks as small as two stacked pennies, and can run at high speed when flattened by half. These features were reproduced in a squishy robot that can run even when flattened: ideal for search and rescue.

New algorithm improves speed, accuracy of pedestrian detection

Mon, 08/02/2016 - 09:59
Electrical engineers have developed a pedestrian detection system that performs in near real-time (two-four frames per second) and with higher accuracy (close to half the error) compared to existing systems. The technology, which incorporates deep learning models, could be used in 'smart' vehicles, robotics and image and video search systems.
