Neurorobotics

The Intersection of Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics

The Neurorobotics online magazine is on open access resource devoted to informing multidisciplinary researchers, developers, manufacturers and the general public about the  science and technology of embodied autonomous neural systems. We focus on both biologically-inspired algorithms and computational models as well as actual neural networks. We report on advances in the embodiment of such neural systems in artificial software and hardware devices, machines, interfaces, robots, and the impact such systems are having in our lives.

Noninvasive Brain Imaging Shows Readiness of Trainees To Perform Operations

Noninvasive Brain Imaging Shows Readiness of Trainees To Perform Operations

Study led by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute faculty and graduate student shows that surgeons who trained on simulator had higher level of cortical activation and faster times for cutting tasks. While simulation platforms have been used to train surgeons before they enter an actual operating room (OR), few studies have evaluated how well trainees transfer those skills from the simulator to the OR.

First-Of-Its-Kind Bioengineered Robotic Hand To Sense Touch

First-Of-Its-Kind Bioengineered Robotic Hand To Sense Touch

The sense of touch is often taken for granted. For someone without a limb or hand, losing that sense of touch can be devastating. While highly sophisticated prostheses with complex moving fingers and joints are available to mimic almost every hand motion, they remain frustratingly difficult and unnatural for the user. This is largely because they lack the tactile experience that guides every movement.

Engineers teaching robots how to push back

Imagine you are moving a couch with a friend. As you start, you both need to crouch down, securely grab it and simultaneously lift it up. As you carry it, you may say a word here and there, but that is not enough to coordinate your actions. You mostly communicate...

Multiplayer video games: Researchers discover link between skill and intelligence

Multiplayer video games: Researchers discover link between skill and intelligence

Researchers at the University of York have discovered a link between young people’s ability to perform well at two popular video games and high levels of intelligence. Studies carried out at the Digital Creativity Labs (DC Labs) at York found that some action strategy video games can act like IQ tests. The researchers’ findings are published today in the journal PLOS ONE.

What Is the Computational Power of the Universe?

What Is the Computational Power of the Universe?

Can a close look at the universe give us solutions to problems too difficult even for a planet-sized computer to solve? National Institute of Standards and Technology physicist Stephen Jordan asks, “What if we consider the cosmos to be the output of a 13.7-billion-year computation?” After all, computers crunch numbers to simulate complex change and the universe has undergone billions of years of change in accordance with the laws of nature.

Preservation For The (Digital) Ages

Preservation For The (Digital) Ages

Digital archivists from TACC collaborate with classicists from The University of Texas at Austin to improve database preservation methods. When Deborah Beck was preparing her book, Speech Presentation in Homeric Epic, her publisher suggested she make the database she had started in 2008 — a searchable catalogue of features from every speech in the Homeric poems — available to the public as a web application and companion resource.
