    The development of a new method to make non-volatile computer memory may have unlocked a problem that has been holding back machine learning and has the potential to revolutionize technologies like voice recognition, image processing and autonomous driving.

  • All-terrain microrobot flips through a live colon
    on October 15, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    A rectangular robot as tiny as a few human hairs can travel throughout a colon by doing back flips, engineers have demonstrated in live animal models.

  • Scientists develop 'mini-brains' to help robots...
    on October 15, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Using a brain-inspired approach, scientists have developed a way for robots to have the artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize pain and to self-repair when damaged.

  • Assessing state of the art in AI for brain...
    on October 14, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    The range of AI technologies available for dealing with brain disease is growing fast, and exciting new methods are being applied to brain problems as computer scientists gain a deeper understanding of the capabilities of advanced algorithms. Researchers conducted a systematic literature review to […]

  • Scientists voice concerns, call for transparency...
    on October 14, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Scientist challenge scientific journals to hold computational researchers to higher standards of transparency, and call for their colleagues to share their code, models and computational environments in publications.

  • New deep learning models: Fewer neurons, more...
    on October 13, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    An international research team has developed a new artificial intelligence system based on the brains of tiny animals, such as threadworms. This novel AI-system can control a vehicle with just a few artificial neurons. It copes much better with noisy input, and, because of its simplicity, its mode […]

  • Using robotic assistance to make colonoscopy...
    on October 12, 2020 at 7:20 pm

    Scientists have made a breakthrough in their work to develop semi-autonomous colonoscopy, using a robot to guide a medical device into the body. The milestone brings closer the prospect of an intelligent robotic system being able to guide instruments to precise locations in the body to take […]

  • This 'squidbot' jets around and takes pics of...
    on October 6, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Engineers have built a squid-like robot that can swim untethered, propelling itself by generating jets of water. The robot carries its own power source inside its body. It can also carry a sensor, such as a camera, for underwater exploration.

  • Underwater robots to autonomously dock...
    on October 6, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    Robots exploring deep bodies of water can only go so far before needing to recharge and upload data. Purdue University engineers have designed a mobile docking station system that would help them go farther.

  • Tool helps clear biases from computer vision
    on October 2, 2020 at 12:02 am

    Researchers have developed a tool that flags potential biases in sets of images used to train artificial intelligence (AI) systems. The work is part of a larger effort to remedy and prevent the biases that have crept into AI systems that influence everything from credit services to courtroom […]
