A network of artificial neurons learns to use human language

mer, 11/11/2015 - 17:07
A group of researchers has developed a cognitive model, made up of two million interconnected artificial neurons, able to learn to communicate using human language starting from a state of 'tabula rasa', only through communication with a human interlocutor. This research sheds light on the neural processes that underlie the development of language.

Imitating synapses of the human brain could lead to smarter electronics

mer, 11/11/2015 - 16:53
Making a computer that learns and remembers like a human brain is a daunting challenge. The complex organ has 86 billion neurons and trillions of connections -- or synapses -- that can grow stronger or weaker over time. But now scientists report the development of a first-of-its-kind synthetic synapse that mimics the plasticity of the real thing, bringing us one step closer to human-like artificial intelligence.

Robotic worm for head surgery can cut around corners

ven, 06/11/2015 - 06:27
Removing tumors from within the inner ear is a very delicate matter that typically requires surgeons to remove the entire mastoid bone. However, in the future, all doctors will need to do is cut a tunnel of 5 mm in diameter through the bone using a miniature robot named NiLiBoRo. The system is capable of adjusting its path while drilling through bone to steer around sensitive tissue such as blood vessels and nerves.

System automatically converts 2D video to 3D

By exploiting the graphics-rendering software that powers sports video games, researchers have developed a system that automatically converts 2-D video of soccer games into 3-D.

Almost human robots: how to tell them apart form a real person?

mar, 03/11/2015 - 14:07
Approximately 50 percent of the people involved in a recent study said they could not confirm between a human and an almost-human robot, which one was the robot.

Humans can empathize with robots

mar, 03/11/2015 - 06:45
Researchers have presented the first neurophysiological evidence of humans' ability to empathize with a robot in perceived pain. Event-related brain potentials in human observers, reflecting empathy with humanoid robots in perceived pain, were similar to those for other humans in pain, except at the beginning of the top-down process of empathy. This difference may be caused by humans' inability in taking a robot's perspective.

Robots for future human missions to Mars

mer, 28/10/2015 - 05:49
Scientists have developed a communication solution that can allow orbiting space station in outer space to maintain uninterrupted contact with robots working on the surface of a planet. The technology also has potential industrial applications, such as to reduce lags and jitters in mobile gaming. The technology is an important step forward for initiatives such as the human mission to Mars. Before humans can land on Mars, the planet needs infrastructure, such as housing and laboratories, which need to be built by robots. These robots need to be controlled by astronauts from a space station orbiting the planet.

'Spring-mass' technology heralds the future of walking robots

mar, 27/10/2015 - 13:29
A new study suggests that researchers have achieved the most realistic robotic implementation of human walking dynamics that has ever been done, which may ultimately allow human-like versatility and performance. The work opens the door for robots to be more fully integrated into our daily lives.

Bridging the human-computer interaction

mar, 27/10/2015 - 12:55
With the goal of revolutionizing everyday interactions between humans and computers, researchers are developing new technologies for making computers recognize not just traditional commands, but also non-verbal ones – gestures, body language and facial expressions.

Robotic systems: How sensorimotor intelligence may develop

mar, 27/10/2015 - 12:33
Researchers propose a novel learning rule to explain the development of sensorimotor intelligence.

Artificial intelligence finds messy galaxies

mar, 27/10/2015 - 12:31
An astrophysics student has turned to artificial intelligence to help her to see into the hearts of galaxies. She was inspired by neural networks to create a program to single out from thousands of galaxies the subjects of her study -- the most turbulent and messy galaxies.

Simulator of human behavior advances research

mar, 27/10/2015 - 07:49
A Spanish research team is investigating how to build a system that recreates human behavior. This technology could be applied to anticipate behavior in socioeconomic crises, create more human-like robots or develop avatars of artificial intelligence which are almost indistinguishable from those that represent people.

Pupils learn poorly when using most computer programs

lun, 26/10/2015 - 11:20
 “Most digital learning tools used in schools are unsatisfactory and only test the knowledge the pupils already have”, says Björn Sjödén, who has reviewed a large number of computer programs in his doctoral thesis “What Makes Good Educational Software?”

A friendly robot: Robot adjusts path to keep out of the way of people

ven, 23/10/2015 - 08:45
Researchers have developed a robot that adjusts its movements in order to avoid colliding with the people and objects around it. This provides new opportunities for more friendly interaction between people and machines.

Robot adapts voice and gestures just to get attention from you

jeu, 22/10/2015 - 10:35
Researchers have developed Talking-Ally, the novel robot that dynamically generate appropriate utterance and gestures based on the person's attention as indicated by his or her actions. The experiments show that this new communicational approach significantly enhances the attention engagement with interactive user.

Dive of the RoboBee
