This robot knows what you're thinking

This robot knows what you're thinking We want the human to do what’s natural and teach [the] robot to interpret that as input signal,” said Gil.Otherwise, they won’t notice any errors made by the robot, meaning that the researchers won't be able to signal that the robot is wrong.

Scientists develop a robot capable of listening when told it's wrong, in real time

Scientists develop a robot capable of listening when told it's wrong, in real time Now a research team from Boston University and MIT’s CSAIL have successfully enabled Baxter to interpret and obey brain waves in real time.” Their setup gave Baxter a simple sorting task and a human judge wearing an EEG cap.

New advances in directed self-assembly could push silicon below 10nm more efficiently than EUV

New advances in directed self-assembly could push silicon below 10nm more efficiently than EUV It’s a complementary method of printing structures using chemical processes.There are materials that self-assemble at the nanoscale when “directed” to do so with one of a variety of techniques.

Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee wins Turing Award, comes out against erosion of online privacy Famed British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee has been honored repeatedly over the years for his role inventing the World Wide Web as we know it.Now, he’s won the 2016 Turing Award, widely considered to be the Nobel Prize of computing.

This ingenious app teaches you a new language in your spare seconds

This ingenious app teaches you a new language in your spare seconds Every day, there are countless seconds that slip by that could probably be put to better use.A set of new apps from researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) looks to take advantage of those "micro-moments," giving lifehack junkies a new opportunity to wring every last bit of productivity out of their days to learn a new language.

Researchers Wring Clean Water From the Desert Air

Researchers Wring Clean Water From the Desert Air Diseases like cholera are spread by contaminated water, and the minerals dissolved in deeply buried desert groundwater salt the earth when we use that water on croplands.To answer the need for a low-overhead water catchment solution, scientists from MIT and UC Berkeley turned to the power of zirconium crystals.

Talend: The reality of the artificial intelligence revolution

Talend: The reality of the artificial intelligence revolution While only a small percentage of respondents are currently investing in AI development in Asia, 25% of firms have already made investments at a global level – with another 50% considering doing so.We have seen a machine master the complex game of Go, previously thought to be the most difficult challenge of artificial processing.
