Video Games: When lag time gets you shot

jeu, 17/11/2016 - 11:51
Do you always get 'shot' playing computer games? Do you, like a sore loser, also blame the equipment? Actually, rather surprisingly, you might be justified.

Tech would use drones and insect biobots to map disaster areas

jeu, 17/11/2016 - 10:44
Researchers have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas -- such as collapsed buildings after a disaster.

New AI algorithm taught by humans learns beyond its training

mer, 16/11/2016 - 10:22
Researchers have designed an algorithm that learns directly from human instructions, rather than an existing set of examples, and outperformed conventional methods of training neural networks by 160 per cent. But more surprisingly, their algorithm also outperformed its own training by nine per cent -- it learned to recognize hair in pictures with greater reliability than that enabled by the training, marking a significant leap forward for artificial intelligence.

Researchers question if banning of 'killer robots' actually will stop robots from killing

mar, 15/11/2016 - 15:53
A research team has published a paper that implies that the rush to ban and demonize autonomous weapons or "killer robots" may be a temporary solution, but the actual problem is that society is entering into a situation where systems like these have and will become possible.

Real men don't say 'cute'

What's in a tweet? From gender to education, the words used on social media carry impressions to others. Using publicly available tweets, social psychologists and computer scientists are helping us to parse out the stereotypes formed by word choices on the social media channel Twitter. Utilizing natural language processing (NLP), a form of artificial intelligence, the researchers show where stereotyping goes from "plausible" to wrong.

Paralyzed ALS patient operates speech computer with her mind

lun, 14/11/2016 - 11:29
A brain implant has been placed in a patient enabling her to operate a speech computer with her mind. The researchers and the patient worked intensively to get the settings right. She can now communicate at home with her family and caregivers via the implant. That a patient can use this technique at home is unique in the world.

Insect vector feeding recognized by machine learning

jeu, 10/11/2016 - 15:32
Scientists have used machine learning algorithms to teach computers to recognize the insect feeding patterns involved in pathogen transmission. The study also uncovers plant traits that might lead to the disruption of pathogen transmission and enable advances in agriculture, livestock and human health.

Artificial-intelligence system surfs web to improve its performance

jeu, 10/11/2016 - 12:02
Of the vast wealth of information unlocked by the Internet, most is plain text. The data necessary to answer myriad questions -- about, say, the correlations between the industrial use of certain chemicals and incidents of disease, or between patterns of news coverage and voter-poll results -- may all be online. But extracting it from plain text and organizing it for quantitative analysis may be prohibitively time consuming.

Dyke inspection robot with an innovative powertrain

mer, 09/11/2016 - 09:03
Future robots that continuously inspect our dykes, don’t come across an electrical charging station every few hours. Using a smart gear box for the robot, a researcher manages to drastically reduce the energy consumption. The energy-autonomous robot comes closer.
