Teaching AI to create visuals with more common sense
Today's smartphones often use artificial intelligence to help make the photos we take crisper and clearer. But what if these AI tools could be used to create entire scenes from scratch?
New AI programming language goes beyond deep learning
General-purpose language works for computer vision, robotics, statistics, and more.
Sensor-packed glove learns signatures of the human grasp
Wearing a sensor-packed glove while handling a variety of objects, researchers have compiled a massive dataset that enables an AI system to recognize objects through touch alone. The information could be leveraged to help robots identify and manipulate objects, and may aid in prosthetics design.
Giving robots a better feel for object manipulation
A new learning system improves robots' abilities to mold materials into target shapes and make predictions about interacting with solid objects and liquids. The system, known as a learning-based particle simulator, could give industrial robots a more refined touch — and it may have fun applications in personal robotics, such as modelling clay shapes or rolling sticky rice for sushi.
In robotic planning, physical simulators are models that capture how different materials respon
IDTechEx interviewed Rohan Sonawane, MD, PhD, Clinical Marketing Manager at Medtronic Diabetes.
Machine-learning system tackles speech, object recognition at once
MIT computer scientists have developed a system that learns to identify objects within an image, based on a spoken description of the image. Given an image and an audio caption, the model will highlight in real-time the relevant regions of the image being described.
Report from the IBM-EnOcean Alliance meeting
On the 29th November at the IBM Watson IoT Centre in Munich, Germany, about 60 attendees took part in a meeting about the decision by IBM to become the 401st member of the EnOcean Alliance, a group of companies that focus on hardware and software for the Internet of Things (IoT). This network was initiated by EnOcean, a German company based around Munich that, about 15 years ago, developed a battery-less, wireless technology that enables sensor solution for the IoT, building automation, and smart homes. Technology Analyst Lorenzo Grande reports updates from the meeting.
EnOcean launches Dolphin brand for energy harvesting wireless modules
EnOcean, the world's leading developer of energy harvesting wireless technology, will offer its energy harvesting wireless modules and white label products under the new brand name "Dolphin - Self-powered IoT by EnOcean" in the future.
Self-driving, 3D-printed smart bus hits the streets
Local Motors has introduced the first self-driving vehicle to integrate the advanced cognitive computing capabilities of IBM Watson.
Royole develops the technology to manufacture flexible AMOLED displays. In 2014, the company demonstrated a flexible display with a thickness of only 10 microns. They are based in the Silicon Valley and in Shenzhen (China).
