Computer Vision, Deep Learning Aid Prosthetic Hands

A built-in camera and artificial intelligence can improve the speed and grasping ability of a prosthetic hand, as shown in tests with people missing a hand. Test results and a description of the technology developed by engineers at Newcastle University in the U.K. appear in yesterday's issue of the Journal of Neural Engineering.


Google's new AI has learned to become "highly aggressive" in stressful situations

Late last year, famed physicist Stephen Hawking issued a warning that the continued advancement of artificial intelligence will either be "the best, or the worst thing, ever to happen to humanity".


Scientists evade the Heisenberg uncertainty principle

ICFO Researchers report the discovery of a new technique that could drastically improve the sensitivity of instruments such as magnetic resonance imagers (MRIs) and atomic clocks. The study, published in Nature, reports a technique to bypass the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. This technique hides quantum uncertainty in atomic features not seen by the instrument, allowing the scientists to make very high precision measurements.


New metamaterial is proved to be the world's first to achieve the performance predicted by theoretical bounds

In 2015 UC Santa Barbara mechanical engineer and materials scientist Jonathan Berger developed an idea that could change the way people think about high-performance structural materials. Two years later, his concept is paying research dividends.


Researchers accidentally made batteries that could last 400 times longer

Researchers in the US have created a battery capable of being recharged hundreds of thousands of times without showing signs of wear, spelling a potential end to electronics rendered useless by dead cells.

British Researchers Set New Record For Fastest Data Transmission Rate

As part of a recent research, scientists from the University College London have achieved the fastest data transfer rate ever recorded between a transmitter and a receiver. With the help of an advanced optical communications system, the team has been able to send data at an incredibly high rate of 1.125 terabits per second. As the...

New artificial skin can let robots 'feel' heat and pressure simultaneously

A team of researchers with Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology and Dong-A University, both in South Korea, has developed an artificial skin that can detect both pressure and heat with a high degree of sensitivity, at the same time.

Artificial Intelligence breakthrough as intuition algorithm beats humans in data test

Big-data analysis consists of searching for buried patterns that have some kind of predictive power. But choosing which "features" of the data to analysis usually requires some human intuition. In this case, though, the researchers tested their first prototype system that analysis big-data against human teams in three data science competitions. The machine managed to finish ahead of a total of 615 human teams.
