  • 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.

  • Robot jaws shows medicated chewing gum could be...
    on July 14, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    Medicated chewing gum has been recognized as a new advanced drug delivery method but currently there is no gold standard for testing drug release from chewing gum in vitro. New research has shown a chewing robot with built-in humanoid jaws could provide opportunities for pharmaceutical companies to […]

  • Context reduces racial bias in hate speech...
    on July 7, 2020 at 3:32 pm

    When it comes to accurately flagging hate speech on social media, context matters, says a new study aimed at reducing errors that could amplify racial bias.

  • Quantum classifiers with tailored quantum kernel?
    on July 7, 2020 at 3:32 pm

    Quantum information scientists have introduced a new method for machine learning classifications in quantum computing. The non-linear quantum kernels in a quantum binary classifier provide new insights for improving the accuracy of quantum machine learning, deemed able to outperform the current AI […]

    on July 2, 2020 at 7:24 pm

    Intrigued by how reflection changes images in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, a team of researchers used artificial intelligence to investigate what sets originals apart from their reflections. Their algorithms learned to pick up on unexpected clues such as hair parts, gaze direction and, […]

  • Teleportation in live musical performance
    on July 2, 2020 at 3:36 pm

    A new study explains for the first time how quantum supercomputers could be helpful in the world of making and performing music.

    on July 1, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    Engineering researchers have developed soft robots inspired by jellyfish that can outswim their real-life counterparts. More practically, the new jellyfish-bots highlight a technique that uses pre-stressed polymers to make soft robots more powerful.

  • Coordinating complex behaviors between hundreds...
    on July 1, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    Researchers propose a new approach to finding an optimal solution for controlling large numbers of robots collaboratively completing a set of complex linear temporal logic commands called STyLuS*, for large-Scale optimal Temporal Logic Synthesis, that can solve problems massively larger than what […]

  • Computational model decodes speech by predicting...
    on June 26, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    UNIGE scientists developed a neuro-computer model which helps explain how the brain identifies syllables in natural speech. The model uses the equivalent of neuronal oscillations produced by brain activity to process the continuous sound flow of connected speech. The model functions according to a […]
