    A research team has created an electronic microsystem that can intelligently respond to information inputs without any external energy input, much like a self-autonomous living organism. The microsystem is constructed from a novel type of electronics that can process ultralow electronic signals and […]

  • New algorithm for modern quilting
    on June 3, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    When it comes to the art of quilting, determining the feasibility and order of steps in advanced patterns can be notoriously complicated - and frustrating. By automating that process, a new algorithm enables quilters to focus on design and creation.

    on June 2, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    It may only be a matter of time until the growing problem of 'deep fakes' converges with geographical information science (GIS). A research team are doing what they can to get ahead of the problem.

  • Researchers fine-tune control over AI image...
    on June 1, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    Researchers have developed a new state-of-the-art method for controlling how artificial intelligence (AI) systems create images. The work has applications for fields from autonomous robotics to AI training.

  • The role of computer voice in the future of...
    on June 1, 2021 at 4:17 pm

    Researchers have performed a meta-synthesis to understand how we perceive and interact with the voice (and the body) of various machines. Their findings have generated insights into human preferences, and can be used by engineers and designers to develop future vocal technologies.

  • A helping hand for working robots
    on May 28, 2021 at 3:40 pm

    Researchers have developed and tested a new type of human-like mechanical hand that combines the benefits of existing robot hands while eliminating their weaknesses.

  • Driving in the snow is a team effort for AI...
    on May 27, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    A major challenge for fully autonomous vehicles is navigating bad weather. Snow especially confounds crucial sensor data that helps a vehicle gauge depth, find obstacles and keep on the correct side of the yellow line, assuming it is visible. Averaging more than 200 inches of snow every winter, […]
