  • Robots and Rights: Confucianism Offers Alternative
    on May 25, 2023 at 6:15 pm

    As robots assume more roles in the world, a new analysis reviewed research on robot rights, concluding that granting rights to robots is a bad idea. Instead, the article looks to Confucianism to offer an alternative.

  • Researchers build bee robot that can twist
    on May 23, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    A robotic bee that can fly fully in all directions has been developed. With four wings made out of carbon fiber and mylar as well as four light-weight actuators to control each wing, the Bee++ prototype is the first to fly stably in all directions. That includes the tricky twisting motion known as […]

  • Can't find your phone? There's a robot for that
    on May 15, 2023 at 5:20 pm

    Engineers have discovered a new way to program robots to help people with dementia locate medicine, glasses, phones and other objects they need but have lost.

  • Better than humans: Artificial intelligence in intensive care units
    on May 11, 2023 at 8:45 pm

    With the help of extensive data from intensive care units of various hospitals, an artificial intelligence was developed that provides suggestions for the treatment of people who require intensive care due to sepsis. Analyses show that artificial intelligence already surpasses the quality of human […]

  • Robotic proxy brings remote users to life in real time
    on May 11, 2023 at 8:45 pm

    Researchers have developed a robot, called ReMotion, that occupies physical space on a remote user's behalf, automatically mirroring the user's movements in real time and conveying key body language that is lost in standard virtual environments.

  • The influence of AI on trust in human interaction
    on May 8, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    As AI becomes increasingly realistic, our trust in those with whom we communicate may be compromised. Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have examined how advanced AI systems impact our trust in the individuals we interact with.

  • Scurrying centipedes inspire many-legged robots that can traverse difficult landscapes
    on May 5, 2023 at 2:17 pm

    Intrigued to see if the many limbs could be helpful for locomotion in this world, a team of physicists, engineers, and mathematicians are using this style of movement to their advantage. They developed a new theory of multilegged locomotion and created many-legged robotic models, discovering the […]

  • AI could run a million microbial experiments per year
    on May 4, 2023 at 7:56 pm

    Automation uncovers combinations of amino acids that feed two bacterial species and could tell us much more about the 90% of bacteria that humans have hardly studied. An artificial intelligence system enables robots to conduct autonomous scientific experiments -- as many as 10,000 per day -- […]

  • Deep neural network provides robust detection of disease biomarkers in real time
    on May 2, 2023 at 7:54 pm

    A lab has developed a deep neural network that improves the accuracy of their unique devices for detecting pathogen biomarkers.

  • A touch-responsive fabric armband -- for flexible keyboards, wearable sketchpads
    on May 2, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    It's time to roll up your sleeves for the next advance in wearable technology -- a fabric armband that's actually a touch pad. Researchers say they have devised a way to make playing video games, sketching cartoons and signing documents easier. Their proof-of-concept silk armband turns a person's […]

  • Highly dexterous robot hand can operate in the dark -- just like us
    on April 27, 2023 at 9:35 pm
