Artificial 'skin' gives robotic hand a sense of touch

A team of researchers from the University of Houston has reported a breakthrough in stretchable electronics that can serve as an artificial skin, allowing a robotic hand to sense the...

DNA triggers shape-shifting in hydrogels, opening a new way to make 'soft robots'

Biochemical engineers have used sequences of DNA molecules to induce shape-changing in water-based gels, demonstrating a new tactic to produce "soft" robots and "smart" medical devices that do not rely...

One step closer to lifelike robots

Researchers have developed a 3-D-printable synthetic soft muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight. The muscle has intrinsic expansion ability and, unlike previous artificial muscles, it does not...

Wikipedia used to give AI context clues

A team of computer scientists is teaching artificial intelligence agents how to interact with the world in a way that makes sense. Source link

World's first 'molecular robot' capable of building molecules

Scientists have created the world's first 'molecular robot' that is capable of performing basic tasks including building other molecules. Source link

Automatic code reuse: System automatically modifies code for transfer to other programs

Researchers have developed a new system that allows programmers to transplant code from one program into another. The programmer can select the code from one program and an insertion point...

New non-contact, remote biometric tool could be next advance in computer security

Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. Scientists have now developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier. The system uses low-level Doppler radar...

Artificial intelligence for obtaining chemical fingerprints

Researchers have succeeded in developing a method for predicting molecular infrared spectra based on artificial intelligence. These chemical 'fingerprints' could only be simulated by common prediction techniques for small molecules...

The 3-D selfie has arrived

Computer scientists have solved a complex problem that has, until now, defeated experts in vision and graphics research. They have developed technology capable of producing 3-D facial reconstruction from a...

How old does your computer think you are?

Computerized face recognition is an important part of initiatives to develop security systems, in building social networks, in curating photographs, and many other applications. Systems can allow a computer to...
