Soft Robotic Exosuit for Stroke Survivors

To allow stroke patients to recover, many rehabilitation centers have looked to robotic exoskeletons. But although there are now a range of exciting devices that are enabling people to walk again who initially were utterly unable to do so, there remains significant active research trying to understand how to best apply wearable robotics for rehabilitation after stroke.

Machine Learning Robots Cook Perfect Hot Dogs

Engineers have made a jump in using machine learning to teach robots to perform complex tasks, a framework that could be applied to a host of tasks, like identifying cancerous spots on mammograms or better understanding spoken commands to play music. But first, as a proof of concept—they've learned how to prepare the perfect hot dog.

Hot Dog Making Robot

In a step forward, a team of researchers has developed a new approach to teaching a robot, or a team of robots, a high-risk, complex task—a framework that could be applied to a host of tasks. In a paper published in Science Robotics, the team demonstrated this framework with a proof-of-concept task by teaching two robots to cook, assemble and serve hot dogs together.

Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are

If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.
