Can gaming mend damaged brains?

First person shooter computer games, such as Medal of Honor, can help rehabilitate patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries, suggests new research.

Computers can tell if you're bored, shows new study

mer, 24/02/2016 - 13:34
Computers are able to read a person's body language to tell whether they are bored or interested in what they see on the screen. The research shows that by measuring a person's movements as they use a computer, it is possible to judge their level of interest by monitoring whether they display the tiny movements that people usually constantly exhibit, known as non-instrumental movements.

New electronic stethoscope, computer program diagnose lung conditions

mar, 23/02/2016 - 10:28
The classic stethoscope has entered the digital age. Medical researchers have created a computer program that connects to an electronic stethoscope to classify lung sounds into five common diagnostic categories, with a high sensitivity for lung sounds, advancing diagnosis accuracy.

Planning algorithm also generates contingency plans

mar, 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?

sam, 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

ven, 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

jeu, 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

lun, 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

lun, 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.

Chip could bring deep learning to mobile devices

mer, 03/02/2016 - 13:48
A new chip has been designed specifically to implement neural networks. It is 10 times as efficient as a mobile GPU, so it could enable mobile devices to run powerful artificial-intelligence algorithms locally, rather than uploading data to the Internet for processing.

Collaboration between humans and robots

mer, 03/02/2016 - 09:11
The new dimension of collaboration between humans and robots can be measured in just a few centimeters: the latest generation of high-precision sensors tells the robotic arms of today’s manufacturing assistants to stop whenever a person gets near. This happens so fast and so reliably that the otherwise standard safety barrier can be dispensed with. And it is this level of safety that makes it possible for people and machines to work hand in hand, in turn allowing companies to completely redesign how humans and robots can share tasks.

Senior citizens may accept robot helpers, but fear robot masters

lun, 01/02/2016 - 12:55
Senior citizens would likely accept robots as helpers and entertainment providers, but are leery of giving up too much control to the machines, according to researchers.
