Researchers have now developed the first passively flying robot equipped with artificial muscle. Could this artificial fairy be utilized in pollination?

  • AI technology generates original proteins from scratch
    on January 26, 2023 at 5:43 pm

    Scientists have created an AI system capable of generating artificial enzymes from scratch. In laboratory tests, some of these enzymes worked as well as those found in nature, even when their artificially generated amino acid sequences diverged significantly from any known natural protein.

  • Versatile robo-dog runs through the sandy beach at 3 meters per second
    on January 26, 2023 at 3:01 pm

    Meet the new addition to the robo-dog family, 'RaiBo', that can run along the sandy beach without losing balance and walk through grassy fields and back on the hard-floored tracking fields all on its own -- no further tinkering necessary.

  • Person-shaped robot can liquify and escape jail, all with the power of magnets
    on January 25, 2023 at 5:15 pm

    Inspired by sea cucumbers, engineers have designed miniature robots that rapidly and reversibly shift between liquid and solid states. On top of being able to shape-shift, the robots are magnetic and can conduct electricity. The researchers put the robots through an obstacle course of mobility and […]

  • Fish sensory organ key to improving navigational skills of underwater robots
    on January 25, 2023 at 12:26 am

    Scientists have been studying a fish sensory organ to understand cues for collective behavior which could be employed on underwater robots.

  • Altered speech may be the first sign of Parkinson's disease
    on January 24, 2023 at 3:38 pm

    Researchers attempted to identify early symptoms of Parkinson's disease using voice data. In their study, the researchers used artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze and assess speech signals, where calculations are done and diagnoses made in seconds rather than hours.

  • New soft robots poised to be more agile, controlled
    on January 23, 2023 at 5:33 pm

    One of the virtues of untethered soft robots is their ability to mechanically adapt to their surroundings and tasks. Now they are poised to become even more agile and controlled.

  • 'Smart' walking stick could help visually impaired with groceries, finding a seat
    on January 19, 2023 at 11:58 pm

    For people who are blind or visually impaired, finding the right products in a crowded grocery store can be difficult without help. A team of computer scientists is trying to change that.

  • A precision arm for miniature robots
    on January 13, 2023 at 4:27 pm

    Until now, microscopic robotic systems have had to make do without arms. Now researchers have developed an ultrasonically actuated glass needle that can be attached to a robotic arm. This lets them pump and mix minuscule amounts of liquid and trap particles.

  • Feathered robotic wing paves way for flapping drones
    on January 13, 2023 at 4:27 pm

    Birds fly more efficiently by folding their wings during the upstroke, according to a recent study. The results could mean that wing-folding is the next step in increasing the propulsive and aerodynamic efficiency of flapping drones.

  • Project aims to expand language technologies
    on January 10, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    Only a fraction of the 7,000 to 8,000 languages spoken around the world benefit from modern language technologies like voice-to-text transcription, automatic captioning, instantaneous translation and voice recognition. Researchers want to expand the number of languages with automatic speech […]

  • Can the AI driving ChatGPT help to detect early signs of Alzheimer's disease?
    on December 22, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    The artificial intelligence algorithms behind the chatbot program ChatGPT -- which has drawn attention for its ability to generate humanlike written responses to some of the most creative queries -- might one day be able to help doctors detect Alzheimer's Disease in its early stages. Research […]

  • Words prove their worth as teaching tools for robots
    on December 22, 2022 at 3:10 pm

    What is the best way to teach a robot? Sometimes it may simply be to speak to it clearly. Researchers found that human-language descriptions of tools can accelerate the learning of a simulated robotic arm lifting and using a variety of tools.

  • Cheerful chatbots don't necessarily improve customer service
    on December 21, 2022 at 11:57 pm
