    Humans have a hard time identifying individual birds just by looking at the patterns on their plumage. An international study has now shown how computers can learn to differentiate individual birds of a same species.

  • Soft robot actuators heal themselves
    on July 27, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Repeated activity wears on soft robotic actuators, but these machine's moving parts need to be reliable and easily fixed. Now a team of researchers has a biosynthetic polymer, patterned after squid ring teeth, that is self-healing and biodegradable, creating a material not only good for actuators, […]

  • Powerful human-like hands create safer...

    New model helps robots understand their environment as humans do.

  • Researchers gives robots intelligent sensing...
    on July 15, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    The novel system developed by computer scientists and materials engineers combines an artificial brain system with human-like electronic skin, and vision sensors, to make robots smarter.

  • Wireless aquatic robot could clean water and...
    on July 14, 2020 at 3:17 pm

    Researchers have developed a tiny plastic robot, made of responsive polymers, which moves under the influence of light and magnetism. In the future this 'wireless aquatic polyp' should be able to attract and capture contaminant particles from the surrounding liquid or pick up and transport cells […]

  • Artificial 'neurotransistor' created
    on July 14, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    While the optimization of conventional microelectronics is slowly reaching its physical limits, nature offers us a blueprint how information can be processed and stored efficiently: our own brain. Scientists have now successfully imitated the functioning of neurons using semiconductor materials.
