Robot technicians from Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) together with colleagues from the Far Eastern Brach of the Russian Academy of Sciences (FEB RAS) developed a command-and-control plugin for intelligent industrial robots. The new software allows the robots to build up high quality 3D computer models of workpieces quickly, precisely, and in the fully automated mode. The related article was published in International Journal of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics Research.
DGIST announced on July 4 that Professor Min-Soo Kim's team in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering developed the DistME (Distributed Matrix Engine) technology that can analyze 100 times more data 14 times faster than the existing technologies. This new technology is expected to be used in machine learning that needs big data processing or various industry fields to analyze large-scale data in the future.
Modeling the shape and movement of near-Earth asteroids is now up to 25 times faster thanks to new WSU research.
A deep reinforcement learning algorithm developed by computer scientists at the University of California, Irvine can solve the Rubik's Cube puzzle in a fraction of a second. The work is a step toward making AI systems that can think, reason, plan and make decisions.
More than half of the world's active volcanoes are not monitored instrumentally. Hence, even eruptions that could have rung an alarm can occur without people at risk having a clue of the upcoming disaster. A research project by the Technical University of Berlin and the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences led to a volcano monitoring platform which analyses satellite images using - amongst other methods - 'artificial intelligence' (AI) for the monitoring of volcanoes.
An automated system developed by MIT researchers designs and 3D prints complex robotic parts called actuators that are optimized according to an enormous number of specifications. In short, the system does automatically what is virtually impossible for humans to do by hand.
An artificial intelligence program developed by Carnegie Mellon University in collaboration with Facebook AI has defeated leading professionals in six-player no-limit Texas hold'em poker, the world's most popular form of poker.
Online virtual worlds can help social movements raise awareness and create safe spaces for their members, according to a new study by an academic at the University of East Anglia (UEA). The research examined how an LGBT group used a virtual world for their own cause, which was different to its intended design.
A team of EPFL researchers has developed tiny 10-gram robots that are inspired by ants: they can communicate with each other, assign roles among themselves and complete complex tasks together. These reconfigurable robots are simple in structure, yet they can jump and crawl to explore uneven surfaces. The researchers have just published their work in Nature.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a technique for embedding data in music and transmitting it to a smartphone. Since the data is imperceptible to the human ear, it doesn't affect listening pleasure. This could have interesting applications in hotels, museums and department stores.
