Tough robots making an ImPACT

ven, 21/07/2017 - 10:46
New and improved rescue robots tough enough to function in extreme and hostile environments were unveiled recently at a demonstration at Tohoku University, Japan.

New type of soft, growing robot created

jeu, 20/07/2017 - 15:53
A newly developed vine-like robot can grow across long distances without moving its whole body. It could prove useful in search and rescue operations and medical applications.

Folding robots: No battery, no wire, no problem

mer, 19/07/2017 - 14:09
Folding robots based on origami have emerged as an exciting new frontier of robotic design, but generally require onboard batteries or a wired connection to a power source, limiting their functionality. Scientist have now created battery-free folding robots that are capable of complex, repeatable movements powered and controlled through a wireless magnetic field.

A personalized rehabilitation algorithm helps stroke patients walk again

mer, 19/07/2017 - 14:09
Scientists have developed an algorithm for a robot-assistive rehabilitation approach that helps people learn to walk again after neurological injuries.

Empowering robots for ethical behavior

mar, 18/07/2017 - 10:35
Scientists have developed a concept called Empowerment to help robots to protect and serve humans, while keeping themselves safe. Rather than trying to make a machine understand complex ethical questions, the concept is based on robots always seeking to keep their options open, and doing the same for the humans around them.

Helping robots learn to see in 3-D

ven, 14/07/2017 - 16:49
While it's relatively straightforward for robots to 'see' objects with cameras and other sensors, interpreting what they see, from a single glimpse, is difficult. New technology enables robots to spot a new object and recognize what it is, whether it is right side up or upside down, without examining it from multiple angles. It can also fill in the blind spots in its field of vision and 'imagine' any parts that are hidden from view.

Research makes robots better at following spoken instructions

jeu, 13/07/2017 - 15:48
A new software system helps robots to more effectively act on instructions from people, who by nature give commands that range from simple and straightforward to those that are more complex and imply a myriad of subtasks.

Why you might trust a quantum computer with secrets, even over the internet

mer, 12/07/2017 - 11:06
Researchers have proposed a way you could use a quantum computer securely, even over the internet, explains a new report.

Teaching personal care robots about human poses

mar, 11/07/2017 - 09:28
A research group has developed a method to estimate various poses using deep learning with depth data alone. Although it requires a large volume of data, the group has realized a technology which efficiently generates data using computer graphics and motion capture technologies. This data is freely available, and expected to contribute to the progress of research across a wide range of related fields.

Computer that reads body language

jeu, 06/07/2017 - 14:31
A computer has been created that understands the body poses and movements of multiple people from video in real time -- including, for the first time, the pose of each individual's fingers.

Tracking humans in 3D with off-the-shelf webcams

mer, 05/07/2017 - 11:33
Whether it's for computer games, motion analysis in sports, or even medical examinations, many applications require that people and their movements are captured digitally in 3D in real-time. Until now, this was possible only with expensive systems of several cameras, or by having people wear special suits. Computer scientists have now developed a system that requires only a single video camera. It can even estimate the 3D pose of a person acting in a pre-recorded video, for instance a YouTube video.

Seeing the colored light: Bee brains open way for better cameras

lun, 03/07/2017 - 17:00
Cameras in drones and robots have trouble dealing with detecting color when the light is changing. But bees, it turns out, have a mechanism that solves this problem and that can be used to improve cameras.

3D-printed robot aims to fight cancer

lun, 03/07/2017 - 12:11
The world’s smallest and most accurate 3D-printed biopsy robot has been revealed by developers.

Milking it: A new robot to extract scorpion venom

lun, 03/07/2017 - 08:33
A new scorpion-milking robot designed to extract venom could replace the traditional manual method. Scorpion venom is used in medical applications such as immunosuppressants, anti-malarial drugs and cancer research, but the extraction process can be potentially life-threatening.

Hackers could use brainwaves to steal passwords, study finds

sam, 01/07/2017 - 08:17
EEG headsets, growing in popularity among consumers, need better security, suggests a team of researchers who say that hackers could use the items to steal passwords.

Who is responsible if a brain-controlled robot drops a baby?

jeu, 29/06/2017 - 14:29
As brain-controlled robots enter everyday life, an article states that now is the time to take action and put in place guidelines that ensure the safe and beneficial use of direct brain-machine interaction.

Dual-arm construction robot with remote-control function

jeu, 29/06/2017 - 08:51
A new concept construction robot has been developed for disaster relief situations. This robot has a double swing dual arm mechanism and has drastically improved operability and mobility compared to conventional construction machines.

Engineers design a robotic gripper for cleaning up space debris

mer, 28/06/2017 - 14:49
Researchers combined gecko-inspired adhesives and a custom robotic gripper to create a device for grabbing space debris. They tested their gripper in multiple zero gravity settings, including the International Space Station.

Hacking the human brain: Lab-made synapses for artificial intelligence

mer, 28/06/2017 - 09:58
One of the greatest challenges facing artificial intelligence development is understanding the human brain and figuring out how to mimic it. Now, one group reports that they have developed an artificial synapse capable of simulating a fundamental function of our nervous system -- the release of inhibitory and stimulatory signals from the same 'pre-synaptic' terminal.

Hey Siri, an ancient algorithm may help you grasp metaphors

mar, 27/06/2017 - 15:26
Ask Siri to find a math tutor to help you 'grasp' calculus and she's likely to respond that your request is beyond her abilities. That's because metaphors like 'grasp' are difficult for Apple's voice-controlled personal assistant to, well, grasp. But new research suggests digital helpers could someday learn the algorithms that humans have used for centuries to create and understand metaphorical language.
