In this informative video, Seth Bling discusses neural evolution and explains how a machine learning Mario teaches us about evolution.
James Harrison is ‘the man with the golden arm’. His blood contains antibodies that can fight the deadly Rhesus disease, so he has donated over 1,100 times and saved more than 2 million lives.
Google’s Project Soli is developing a new interaction sensor using radar technology. The sensor can track sub-millimeter motions at high speed and accuracy. It fits onto a chip, can be produced at scale and built into small devices and everyday objects. The team adds: “Our hands are fast and precise instruments, but so far,…
A miniature robotic device that can fold-up on the spot, accomplish tasks and disappear by degradation into the environment promises a range of medical applications.
In a leap for robotic development, the MIT researchers who built a robotic cheetah have now trained it to see and jump over hurdles as it runs — making this the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously.
Coffee, caffeine and circadian rhythms; oh my!
