University of California, Berkeley

HQ Country
United States
The University of California, Berkeley (Cal), established in 1868, is the oldest campus of the University of California system, which now includes nine campuses and a 10th under development. Graduate and undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences are offered in a wide range of disciplines, leading to bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. degrees. Cal is one of the world's leading research institutions. Cal has been ranked first nationally in the number of graduate programs in the top 10 in their fields and also first nationally in the number of "distinguished" programs for the scholarship of the faculty. Cal ranks first in the nation and first in the University of California system in the amount of federal research dollars awarded. Cal's renowned faculty currently includes seven recipients of the Nobel Prize and has included 17 Nobel laureates over time.

Autonomous mobile picking robots learn, fast

In the past five years or so several major research groups have demonstrated that robots can learn to grasp novel varied objects with accuracy levels around 80-85%. Still performance levels, even in the labs, are sub-human but this is changing fast.

Ideal material for smart photovoltaic windows

Imagine that when a window is darkened, it simultaneously produces electricity. Such a material - a photovoltaic glass that is also reversibly thermochromic - is a green technology researchers have long worked toward, and now, scientists have demonstrated a way to make it work.

Volumetric 3D printing builds on need for speed

While additive manufacturing is enabling engineers and scientists to build parts in configurations and designs never before possible, the impact of the technology has been limited by layer-based printing methods, which can take up to hours or days to build three-dimensional parts, depending on their complexity.

Helping hands guide robots as they learn

Like toddlers, robots can use a little help as they learn to function in the physical world. That's the purpose of a Rice University program that gently guides robots toward the most helpful, human-like ways to collaborate on tasks.
