Robot controlled remotely with thoughts

ScienceDaily's AI News - mar, 23/06/2015 - 10:36
For someone suffering from paralysis or limited mobility, visiting with other people is extremely difficult. Scientists have been working on a revolutionary brain-machine approach in order to restore a sense of independence to the disabled. The idea is to remotely control a robot from home with one's thoughts. The research, involving numerous subjects located in different countries, produced excellent results in both human and technical terms.

Car of the future: Autonomous, or cooperative

ScienceDaily's AI News - lun, 22/06/2015 - 12:48
The self-driving car has strong potential for improving traffic flow, road safety, and reducing the environmental impact of traffic. But only if it is designed to communicate with other cars and smart road systems. Not all self-driving cars fulfill this requirement. Scientists call for an integral innovation approach that requires European policy makers and companies to set up standards for the development and implementation of this new technology.

Micro-tentacles created so tiny robots can handle delicate objects

ScienceDaily's AI News - lun, 22/06/2015 - 09:23
Robotics experts have developed microrobotic tentacles that can be the hands and fingers of small robots designed to safely handle delicate objects.

Carrying a table together with a co-operative robot

ScienceDaily's AI News - ven, 19/06/2015 - 08:44
From a robot’s perspective, humans are normally a nuisance: when robots and humans have to work together, it often leads to problems. Researchers want to teach robots how to interact with humans and work together to accomplish tasks. CogIMon stands for “cognitive compliant interaction in motion.” This research group is working on humanoid as well as industrial robots.

Squid inspires camouflaging smart materials

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 10/06/2015 - 09:31
Researchers have made a robot that learns like a young child. At least, that's the idea. The machine starts with nothing -- it has to learn everything from scratch.

Using Minecraft to unboggle the robot mind

ScienceDaily's AI News - lun, 08/06/2015 - 12:02
Researchers are developing a new algorithm to help robots better plan their actions in complex environments. It's designed to help robots be more useful in the real world, but it's being developed with the help of a virtual world -- that of the video game Minecraft.

Planarian regeneration model discovered by artificial intelligence

ScienceDaily's AI News - jeu, 04/06/2015 - 16:24
An artificial intelligence system has for the first time reverse-engineered the regeneration mechanism of planaria -- the small worms whose power to regrow body parts makes them a research model in human regenerative medicine. The discovery presents the first model of regeneration discovered by a non-human intelligence and the first comprehensive model of planarian regeneration, which has eluded human scientists for a century.

Helping robots handle uncertainty

ScienceDaily's AI News - mer, 03/06/2015 - 12:44
Decentralized partially observable Markov decision processes are a way to model autonomous robots' behavior in circumstances where neither their communication with each other nor their judgments about the outside world are perfect. Now researchers note that an algorithm for planning robot collaborations makes complex models practical.
