  • This system helps robots better navigate...
    on May 10, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    Computer scientists have developed a more accurate navigation system that will allow robots to better negotiate busy clinical environments in general and emergency departments more specifically. The researchers have also developed a dataset of open source videos to help train robotic navigation […]

  • Reaching your life goals as a single-celled...
    on May 10, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    How is it possible to move in the desired direction without a brain or nervous system? Single-celled organisms apparently manage this feat without any problems: for example, they can swim towards food with the help of small flagellar tails. A research team has now been able to simulate this process […]

    Properly understanding and responding to customer feedback on social media platforms is crucial for brands, and it may have just gotten a little easier thanks to new research.

  • New law of physics helps humans and robots grasp...
    on April 29, 2021 at 4:33 pm

    Although robotic devices are used in everything from assembly lines to medicine, engineers have a hard time accounting for the friction that occurs when those robots grip objects - particularly in wet environments. Researchers have now discovered a new law of physics that accounts for this type of […]

  • Simple robots, smart algorithms
    on April 24, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Inspired by a theoretical model of particles moving around on a chessboard, new robot swarm research shows that, as magnetic interactions increase, dispersed 'dumb robots' can abruptly gather in large, compact clusters to accomplish complex tasks. Researchers report that these 'BOBbots' (behaving, […]

    on April 21, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Researchers have developed a new, high-performance artificial muscle technology. The new technology enables more human-like motion due to its flexibility and adaptability, but outperforms human skeletal muscle in several metrics.

  • Pepper the robot talks to itself to improve its...
    on April 21, 2021 at 4:46 pm

    Ever wondered why your virtual home assistant doesn't understand your questions? Or why your navigation app took you on the side street instead of the highway? Researchers have now designed a robot that 'thinks out loud' so that users can hear its thought process and better understand the robot's […]

  • Combining light, superconductors could boost AI...
    on April 20, 2021 at 5:10 pm

    As artificial intelligence has attracted interest, researchers are focused on understanding how the brain accomplishes cognition so they can construct systems with general intelligence comparable to humans' intelligence. Researchers propose an approach to AI that focuses on integrating photonic […]

  • Researcher uses bat-inspired design to develop...
    on April 15, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    Inspired by the workings of a bat's ear, a professor of mechanical engineering has created bio-inspired technology that determines the location of a sound's origin.

  • 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 […]
