NeuroroboticsThe Intersection of Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics
NEUROROBOTICS FACEBOOK GROUP
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.
Learning Tool Will Be Field-Tested in Africa for 15 Months. RoboTutor LLC, a Carnegie Mellon spinoff created by Professor Jack Mostow, was named one of five Global Learning XPRIZE finalists for its RoboTutor software — educational technology that teaches children basic math and reading skills.
Researchers will present a new general-purpose technique for making sense of neural networks trained to perform natural-language-processing tasks, in which computers attempt to interpret freeform texts written in ordinary, or natural language (as opposed to a programming language, for example). Artificial-intelligence research has been transformed by machine-learning systems called neural networks, which learn how to perform tasks by analyzing huge volumes of training data.
A new app gives UK residents the chance to get involved in an ambitious, ground-breaking science experiment that could save lives. Scientists from the University of Cambridge and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are attempting to collect a gold standard data set that can be used to predict how the next pandemic flu would spread through this country – and what can be done to stop it. They need your help.
Decision to share personal data need not be all or nothing. A smartphone app that uses the raw feed from a device’s microphone or accesses its contact list can raise red flags for a user concerned about privacy. In many cases, however, the app doesn’t need all the details that users find most sensitive.
A team of scientists from the University of Chicago designed a way to use microscopic capsules made out of DNA to deliver a payload of tiny molecules directly into a cell.
MIT engineers have now devised a way to automate the process of recording electrical signals from inside a neuron, using a computer algorithm that analyzes microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell.
An international team of scientists presents a thorough review in Nature on quantum machine learning, its current status and future prospects. Language acquisition in young children is apparently connected with their ability to detect patterns.
Technology has changed the way children develop and interact with others, and while it seems to change every day, many parents are forced to keep up or get left behind. Jessica Mirman, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology in the University of...
