The first walking robot that moves without GPS

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 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

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 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

ScienceDaily's AI News - mar, 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

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

ScienceDaily's AI News - ven, 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

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 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

Most people overlook artificial intelligence despite flawless advice

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 30/01/2019 - 16:16
A team of researchers recently discovered that most people overlook artificial intelligence despite flawless advice. AI-like systems will be an integral part of the Army's strategy over the next five years, so system designers will need to start getting a bit more creative in order to appeal to users.

Engineers translate brain signals directly into speech

ScienceDaily's AI News - mar, 29/01/2019 - 08:19
In a scientific first, neuroengineers have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. This breakthrough, which harnesses the power of speech synthesizers and artificial intelligence, could lead to new ways for computers to communicate directly with the brain.

Defending against cyberattacks by giving attackers 'false hope'

ScienceDaily's AI News - lun, 28/01/2019 - 14:24
'The quarantine is a decoy that behaves very similar to the real compromised target to keep the attacker assuming that the attack is still succeeding. In a typical cyberattack the more deeply attackers go in the system, the more they have the ability to go many directions. It becomes like a Whack-A-Mole game for those defending the system. Our strategy simply changes the game, but makes the attackers think they are being successful.'

Self-driving cars, robots: Identifying AI 'blind spots'

ScienceDaily's AI News - ven, 25/01/2019 - 09:42
A novel model identifies instances in which autonomous systems have 'learned' from training examples that don't match what's actually happening in the real world. Engineers could use this model to improve the safety of artificial intelligence systems, such as driverless vehicles and autonomous robots.

The first tendril-like soft robot able to climb

ScienceDaily's AI News - jeu, 24/01/2019 - 10:53
Researchers have made the first soft robot mimicking plant tendrils: it is able to curl and climb, using the same physical principles determining water transport in plants. In the future this tendril-like soft robot could inspire the development of wearable devices, such as soft braces, able to actively morph their shape.

Increasing skepticism against robots

In Europe, people are more reserved regarding robots than they were five years ago.

Artificial intelligence can dramatically cut time needed to process abnormal chest X-rays

ScienceDaily's AI News - mar, 22/01/2019 - 08:44
New research has found that a novel Artificial Intelligence (AI) system can dramatically reduce the time needed to ensure that abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings will receive an expert radiologist opinion sooner, cutting the average delay from 11 days to less than three days. Chest X-rays are routinely performed to diagnose and monitor a wide range of conditions affecting the lungs, heart, bones, and soft tissues.
