  • Artificial Intelligence could 'crack the language...
    on April 8, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    Powerful algorithms can 'predict' the biological language of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, scientists have found. Big data produced during decades of research was fed into a computer language model to see if artificial intelligence can make more advanced discoveries than […]

  • Robots can be more aware of human co-workers,...
    on April 7, 2021 at 4:40 pm

    A new context-aware system for robots is ready for implementation on the factory floor. A recent study shows the system is more efficient because it can recognize co-workers and their body shapes, and even predict their movements.

  • Screening for skin disease on your laptop
    on April 6, 2021 at 5:20 pm

    A biomedical engineer is reporting a new deep neural network architecture - to be used on a standard laptop - that provides early diagnosis of systemic sclerosis (SSc), a rare autoimmune disease marked by hardened or fibrous skin and internal organs.

  • Deep learning networks prefer the human voice --...
    on April 6, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    A study proves that AI systems might reach higher levels of performance if they are programmed with sound files of human language rather than with numerical data labels. The researchers discovered that in a side-by-side comparison, a neural network whose 'training labels' consisted of sound files […]

  • A robot that senses hidden objects
    on April 1, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    RF Grasp is a picking robot that combines vision with radio frequency (RF) sensing to find and grasps objects, even if they're hidden from view. The technology could aid fulfillment in e-commerce warehouses.

  • Even without a brain, metal-eating robots can...
    on March 31, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    This 'metal-eating' robot can follow a metal path without using a computer or needing a battery. By wiring the power-supplying units to the wheels on the opposite side, the robot autonomously navigates towards aluminum surfaces and away from hazards that block its energy source.

  • Scientists create next gen living robots
    on March 31, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    Scientists up to create the next version of Xenobots - tiny biological robots that self-assemble, carry out tasks, and can repair themselves. Now they can move faster, and record information.

  • New early warning system for self-driving cars
    on March 30, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    A team of researchers has developed a new early warning system for vehicles that uses artificial intelligence to learn from thousands of real traffic situations. The results show that, if used in today's self-driving vehicles, it can warn seven seconds in advance against potentially critical […]

  • Soft robotic dragonfly signals environmental...
    on March 25, 2021 at 4:08 pm

    Engineers have developed an electronics-free, entirely soft robot shaped like a dragonfly that can skim across the water and react to environmental conditions such as pH, temperature or the presence of oil. The proof-of-principle demonstration could be the precursor to more advanced, autonomous, […]

  • How tiny machines become capable of learning
    on March 25, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    Living organisms, from bacteria to animals and humans, can perceive their environment and process, store and retrieve this information. They learn how to react to later situations using appropriate actions. A team of physicists have developed a method for giving tiny artificial microswimmers a […]
