Imprint Energy expands access to safe, flexible batteries
Imprint Energy announced the expanded availability of its developer's kit for its ultrathin, safe, flexible, printed batteries.
IDTechEx spoke to Dr Cory Kidd, CEO of Catalia Health. The company developed Mabu, a 'Wellness coach' robot designed to improve chronic disease care management.
Artificial intelligence assisted knitting
Researchers have come up with a new approach to streamline the knitting process: a new system and design tool for automating knitted garments.
Analog Photonics are developing a lidar module, and are a spin out from MIT (USA).
Artificial "muscles" achieve powerful pulling force
As a cucumber plant grows, it sprouts tightly coiled tendrils that seek out supports in order to pull the plant upward. This ensures the plant receives as much sunlight exposure as possible. Now, researchers have found a way to imitate this coiling-and-pulling mechanism to produce contracting fibers that could be used as artificial muscles for robots, prosthetic limbs, or other mechanical and biomedical applications.
Simple 'smart' glass reveals the future of artificial vision
The sophisticated technology that powers face recognition in many modern smartphones someday could receive a high-tech upgrade that sounds — and looks — surprisingly low-tech.
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?
Mobile motor could lead robots to assembling other robots
A set of five tiny fundamental parts can be assembled into a wide variety of functional devices, including a tiny "walking" motor that can move back and forth across a surface or turn the gears of a machine.
New AI programming language goes beyond deep learning
General-purpose language works for computer vision, robotics, statistics, and more.
Social robots can benefit hospitalized children
A new study demonstrates, for the first time, that "social robots" used in support sessions held in pediatric units at hospitals can lead to more positive emotions in sick children.
Engineers 3-D print flexible mesh for ankle and knee braces
Hearing aids, dental crowns, and limb prosthetics are some of the medical devices that can now be digitally designed and customized for individual patients, thanks to 3-D printing. However, these devices are typically designed to replace or support bones and other rigid parts of the body, and are often printed from solid, relatively inflexible material.
Teaching AI to connect senses like vision and touch
While our sense of touch gives us a channel to feel the physical world, our eyes help us immediately understand the full picture of these tactile signals. Robots that have been programmed to see or feel can't use these signals quite as interchangeably.
Algorithm tells robots where nearby humans are headed
A new tool for predicting a person's movement trajectory may help humans and robots work together in close proximity.
AI generates human faces based on their voices
How much can we infer about a person's looks from the way they speak? A group of researchers from MIT has created an artificial intelligence system that can reconstruct people's faces by listening to their voices.
Using AI to predict breast cancer and personalize care
Researchers have created a new deep-learning model that can predict from a mammogram if a patient is likely to develop breast cancer as much as five years in the future. Trained on mammograms and known outcomes from over 60,000 MGH patients, the model learned the subtle patterns in breast tissue that are precursors to malignant tumors.
CNI are a photonic products manufacturer specialising in laser diodes. CNI area a key player in the global laser diodes market.
Fleet of "roboats" could collect garbage
The city of Amsterdam envisions a future where fleets of autonomous boats cruise its many canals to transport goods and people, collect trash, or self-assemble into floating stages and bridges.
A 3-D printer powered by machine vision and artificial intelligence
Objects made with 3-D printing can be lighter, stronger, and more complex than those produced through traditional manufacturing methods. But several technical challenges must be overcome before 3-D printing transforms the production of most devices.
