Researchers have unveiled a novel video-editing solution this week that automatically sorts and edits untouched footage into the most picturesque highlights for a vacation reel that could fill anyone with envy.
Rustling leaves, a creaking branch: To a mouse, these sensory impressions may at first seem harmless -- but not if a cat suddenly bursts out of the bush. If so, they were clues of impending life-threatening danger. Scientists have now found how the brain can link sensory perceptions to events occurring after a delay. In a computer model, he has developed a learning procedure in which the model neurons can learn to distinguish between many different stimuli by adjusting their activity to the frequency of the cues. The model even works when there is a time delay between the cue and the event or outcome.
We do not merely recognize objects -- our brain is so good at this task that we can automatically supply the concept of a cup when shown a photo of a curved handle or identify a face from just an ear or nose. Neurobiologists, computer scientists, and robotics engineers are all interested in understanding how such recognition works -- in both human and computer vision systems. New research suggests that there is an "atomic" unit of recognition -- a minimum amount of information an image must contain for recognition to occur.
Remembering robots from film portrayals may help ease some of the anxiety that older adults have about using a robot, according to Penn State researchers.
Robot makers may want to follow Ikea's strategy for customer satisfaction and give people a chance to partially assemble their new robots to ease acceptance of the devices, according to researchers.
An amputee feels rough or smooth textures in real-time -- in his phantom hand -- using an artificial fingertip connected to nerves in the arm. The advancement will accelerate the development of touch enabled prosthetics.
