Automotive modular robot could change it’s configuration to overcome obstacles.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the Cornell University developed an algorithm for robot so it could only by itself trespass obstacles and different tests at specially built area. For testing of their software they used robot which is known as SMORES-EP. It was developed at the University of Pennsylvania. This researchers modified this … Continue reading Automotive modular robot could change it’s configuration to overcome obstacles.

Chemists made a super-resistant and solid artificial wood.

Chinese scientists from Heifei University of Science and Technology of China invented an artificial wood that has useful properties of natural material but at the same time lacks its flaws such as vulnerabilities to fire and water. When the researchers were trying to generate this wood-like substance, they decided to mix a solution of polymer … Continue reading Chemists made a super-resistant and solid artificial wood.

Robust fuel cell runs on methane at practical temperatures.

A group of scientists led by Meilin Liu from the Georgia Institute of Technology created a new fuel cell, which had been reimagined with the help of a newly invented fuel catalyst. This catalyst uses readily available methane instead of usual high-priced hydrogen fuel. It gonna make its production much cheaper. Hydrogen is the best … Continue reading Robust fuel cell runs on methane at practical temperatures.

Russian researchers developed method of getting water from the air.

Researchers from Samara University created fully autonomous device for collecting water from the air which is called "The Vortex Spring". It is quite small construction for industrial tech, from 6 to 10 meters in hight and from 1 to 2 meters in diameter. HIs invention is the most effective in dry and arid areas where … Continue reading Russian researchers developed method of getting water from the air.

Scientists used machine learning to detect mentally ill people on Twitter.

A team of American psychologists and computer scientists developed a method that can help to identify people who are on the verge of having depression or PTSD. Their technique turned out to be quite effective as the results were correct 9 times out of 10 To achieve that they collected the data from Twitter accounts … Continue reading Scientists used machine learning to detect mentally ill people on Twitter.

How to teach an artificial intelligence systems using video games.

Researchers from University of Pittsburgh develop an algorithm which could help them to teach an artificial intelligence. Their method is based on usage of video games. Now, this researchers are developing optimal method for algorithms to learn strategies for decision making.  They are trying to imminent this to the stimulation of real world to teach … Continue reading How to teach an artificial intelligence systems using video games.

Scientists are developing superior biodegradable implants.

Assistant professor of industrial engineering at the Swanson School Mostafa Bedewy and his research group from NanoProduct Lab have found an advantage of using silk and carbon nanotubes (CNT) during their experiments with those materials. They were planning to invent a revolutionary biomedical devices and have already managed to get some promising results. The researchers … Continue reading Scientists are developing superior biodegradable implants.

New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies.

A group of scientists from Stanford University headed by chemist Matthew Kanan has developed a device which enables to transform a received CO into beneficial compounds a way more effectively than ever before. The scientists claim that they learned how to use 84% of the carbon monoxide, which they obtain from carbon dioxide– the colorless, … Continue reading New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies.

MIT researchers created autonomous fleet of drones which has no need in GPS.

Researchers from MIT presented in a paper an autonomous fleet of drones which has no need in GPS and have to work on rescue missions. The drones would have an object detection systems, laser-range finders for position estimation and path planing. They already started tests. A few of them were in randomly generated forest simulation … Continue reading MIT researchers created autonomous fleet of drones which has no need in GPS.

Egineers found a way to make traffic lights and speeding tickets obsolete by using AI.

Andreas Malikopolous and his disciples from the University of Delware are designing a new automated vehicle system that would get us rid of lots of traffic troubles. At the current moment they are testing it in laboratories of their university: the UD Scaled Smart City (UDSSC) testbed and a driving simulator facility. The first major … Continue reading Egineers found a way to make traffic lights and speeding tickets obsolete by using AI.
