Can cartoons be used to teach machines to understand the visual world? (9/29/2014)

Can cartoons be used to teach machines to understand the visual world?Google has awarded Devi Parikh of Virginia Tech's Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering a Faculty Research Award that comes with $92,000 of unrestricted funding and allows her to work directly with Google researchers and engineers as they explore how to best teach machines from visual abstractions. ...> Full Article


Blood-cleansing biospleen device developed for sepsis therapy (9/17/2014)

Blood-cleansing biospleen device developed for sepsis therapyThings can go downhill fast when a patient has sepsis, a life-threatening condition in which bacteria or fungi multiply in a patient's blood -- often too fast for antibiotics to help. A new device inspired by the human spleen and developed by a team at Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering may radically transform the way doctors treat sepsis. ...> Full Article


Cutting the cord on soft robots (9/14/2014)

Engineers at Harvard's School for Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have developed the world's first untethered soft robot -- and demonstrated that the quadruped, which can literally stand up and walk away from its designers, can walk through snow, fire and even be run over by a car. The hope is that such robots might one day serve as a search and rescue tool following disasters. ...> Full Article


Artificial membranes on silicon (9/13/2014)

Artificial membranes on siliconArtificial membranes mimicking those found in living organisms have many potential applications ranging from detecting bacterial contaminants in food to toxic pollution in the environment to dangerous diseases in people. Now a group of scientists in Chile has developed a way to create these delicate, ultra-thin constructs through a 'dry' process, by evaporating two commercial, off-the-shelf chemicals onto silicon surfaces. ...> Full Article


Researchers advance artificial intelligence for player goal prediction in gaming (9/12/2014)

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed artificial intelligence software that is significantly better than any previous technology at predicting what goal a player is trying to achieve in a video game. The advance holds promise for helping game developers design new ways of improving the gameplay experience for players. ...> Full Article


Soft robot squirms over fire, ice, and withstands crushing force (9/11/2014)

Engineers have created a shape-changing 'soft' robot that can tread over a variety of adverse environmental conditions including snow, puddles of water, flames and the crushing force of being run over by an automobile. The pneumatically powered, fully untethered robot was enabled by the careful selection of materials and composites, including silicone elastomer. It can carry its own weight and the authors say the robot demonstrates surprising resilience with implications for search and rescue missions. ...> Full Article

Electric current to brain boosts memory (9/2/2014)

Stimulating a region in the brain via non-invasive delivery of electrical current using magnetic pulses, called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, improves memory. The discovery opens a new field of possibilities for treating memory impairments caused by conditions such as stroke, early-stage Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, cardiac arrest and the memory problems that occur in healthy aging. ...> Full Article
