Researchers unveil Adaptive Virtual Organisms of the Future

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking the world to frontiers where stuff of legends that Hollywood movies are made of, seems possible today. A team of researchers from University of Bucharest have developed something similar. They have created a virtual organism, which combines reconfigurable hardware agents, abstract intelligent thinking, and adaptive software agents. This research combines entities that have puzzled and intrigued scientists for ages. For example, psychology often aims to

AutoSaw Helps in Production and Assembling of Custom Furniture Using Robots

A team from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has created a robotic system AutoSaw to help reduce the chances of injuries to carpenters and let them focus on bigger tasks such as designing. The robots are said to be able to construct different items that have been customized using the system. Tasks such as sawing often cause injuries to hands and

Robot Learning to Augment Student Engagement in Coming Days

Positioned around the class, every robot has a video screen placed, which is handled by the remote client that gives the understudy an opportunity to dish around the space to interact and see with the teacher and agnate understudies taking an interest face to face. As per the analysis by Online Learning, it is concluded that robot adapting by and large benefits remote understudies more than normal videoconferencing, where numerous

Researchers Create Artificial Muscles to Support Soft Robots

Over the past few years, soft robotics has been making rapid growth across the world, with researchers continuously experimenting with various materials and designs to incorporate flexibility in once rigid and jerky machines in a way that it can easily interact with living organisms more naturally. However, the heightened flexibility and deftness has a led to reduced strength, since softer and malleable materials are usually not as resilient and sturdy

New Algorithm to Enhance Performance of Robots

A speedy collision detection algorithm is likely to improve the performance robots that would now act more like a human assistant at home or in operating rooms. Electrical engineers of the University of California San Diego have come up with a program called ‘Fastron’. This algorithm, Fastron, runs 8 times faster than the prevailing algorithms of collision detection. Applications of Fastron The team that is led by a computer and
