The Machine as Extension of the Body

Combining neuroscience and robotic research has gained impressive results in the rehabilitation of paraplegic patients. A research team led by Prof. Gordon Cheng from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was able to show that exoskeleton training not only helped... Continue Reading →

Scientists develop ‘mini-brains’ to help robots recognize pain and to self-repair

Using a brain-inspired approach, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a way for robots to have the artificial intelligence (AI) to recognise pain and to self-repair when damaged. The system has AI-enabled sensor nodes to process... Continue Reading →

New scavenger technology allows robots to ‘eat’ metal for energy

When electronics need their own power sources, there are two basic options: batteries and harvesters. Batteries store energy internally, but are therefore heavy and have a limited supply. Harvesters, such as solar panels, collect energy from their environments. This gets... Continue Reading →

Living robots built using frog cells

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells -- scraped from frog embryos -- and assembled them... Continue Reading →

You can’t squash this roach-inspired robot

If the sight of a skittering bug makes you squirm, you may want to look away -- a new insect-sized robot created by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can scurry across the floor at nearly the speed of... Continue Reading →

New e-skin innovation gives robots and prosthetics an exceptional sense of touch

Robots and prosthetic devices may soon have a sense of touch equivalent to, or better than, the human skin with the Asynchronous Coded Electronic Skin (ACES), an artificial nervous system developed by a team of researchers at the National University... Continue Reading →

Tempted to cheat on a written exam? Artificial intelligence is 90% certain to nab you

Combining big data with artificial intelligence has allowed University of Copenhagen researchers to determine whether you wrote your assignment or whether a ghostwriter penned it for you -- with nearly 90 percent accuracy. Several studies have shown that cheating on... Continue Reading →
