Digital Fabrication in Architecture

Feb. 17, 2017 — Society faces enormous challenges in constructing high-quality, future-oriented built environments. Construction sites today look much like the building sites did at the beginning of the 20th ... read more

Feb. 7, 2017 — An international team has, for the first time, developed a way of combining anonymized data from mobile phones and satellite imagery data to create high resolution maps to measure ... read more

Jan. 26, 2017 — Surgeons have operated on a patient with retinal vein occlusion using a surgical robot. Operated by an eye surgeon, the robot uses a needle of barely 0.03 millimeter to inject a thrombolytic drug ... read more

Jan. 26, 2017 — Autonomous systems -- like driverless cars -- perform tasks that previously could only be performed by humans. In a new article, artificial intelligence ethics experts argue that current safety ... read more

Passing the Chemical Turing Test: Making Artificial and Real Cells Talk

Jan. 25, 2017 — The classic Turing test evaluates a machine's ability to mimic human behavior and intelligence. To pass, a computer must fool the tester into thinking it is human -- typically through the use of ... read more

Jan. 23, 2017 — Using a novel approach for computing real-time game strategy, engineers have developed an artificial Ms. Pac-Man player that chomps the existing high score for computerized ... read more

Jan. 4, 2017 — Researchers have developed a way to manufacture microscale-sized machines from biomaterials that can safely be implanted in the body. Working with hydrogels, they have invented a new technique that ... read more

Novel Hardware-Based Modeling Approach for Multi-Robot Tasks

Dec. 29, 2016 — Technological revolution means robots no longer are the song of the future. The Governor of the Bank of England predicts today that up to half of British workforce face redundancy in the imminent ... read more

Dec. 27, 2016 — Controls engineers have developed practical strategies for building and coordinating scores of sensor-laden balloons within hurricanes. Using onboard GPS and cellphone-grade sensors, each drifting ... read more

Dec. 25, 2016 — Scientists have developed a transparent, self-healing, highly stretchable conductive material that can be electrically activated to power artificial muscles and could be used to improve batteries, ... read more

Dec. 20, 2016 — Researchers have, for the first time, successfully demonstrated the basic operation of spintronics-based artificial ... read more

Astronauts to Get Help from Snake Robots

Dec. 20, 2016 — Researchers are looking into how a snake robot might carry out maintenance work on the International Space Station (ISS), study comets, and explore the possibility of living and working in lava ... read more

Dec. 19, 2016 — Designing a soft robot to move organically -- to bend like a finger or twist like a wrist -- has always been a process of trial and error. Now, researchers have developed a method to automatically ... read more

Dec. 14, 2016 — In democratic societies, it is considered an obligation of researchers and politicians to inform the public about modern technologies and their potential risks. Researchers recently found that ... read more

Dec. 13, 2016 — A group of researchers has developed a prototype construction robot for disaster relief situations. This prototype has drastically improved operability and mobility compared to conventional ... read more

Dec. 12, 2016 — Most robots achieve grasping and tactile sensing through motorized means, which can be excessively bulky and rigid. Scientists have now devised a way for a soft robot to feel its surroundings ... read more

Researchers' Discovery of New Verbal Working Memory Architecture Has Implications for Artificial Intelligence

Dec. 12, 2016 — The neural structure we use to store and process information in verbal working memory is more complex than previously understood--a discovery that has implications for the creation of artificial ... read more

Dec. 6, 2016 — Roboticists have designed a small robot that can leap into the air and then spring off a wall, or perform multiple vertical jumps in a row, resulting in the highest robotic vertical jumping agility ... read more

Dec. 6, 2016 — Parrotlets flying through a field of lasers and microparticles helped test three popular models that predict the lift generated by flying animals. The work could help develop better flying ... read more

Dec. 6, 2016 — Researchers have published the first demonstration of humans playing a simple, two-dimensional computer game using only input from direct brain stimulation -- without relying on any usual sensory ... read more
