Neurorobotics Magazine

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.

Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting

Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting

A group of researchers from the UK and the US have used machine learning techniques to successfully predict earthquakes. Although their work was performed in a laboratory setting, the experiment closely mimics real-life conditions, and the results could be used to predict the timing of a real earthquake.

ROBOTICS
New RoboBee flies, dives, swims, and explodes out the of water

New RoboBee flies, dives, swims, and explodes out the of water

Hybrid robot could perform search and rescue missions, research studies, environmental monitoring. We’ve seen RoboBees that can fly, stick to walls, and dive into water. Now, get ready for a hybrid RoboBee that can fly, dive into water, swim, propel itself back out of water, and safely land.

Flexible ‘skin’ can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Flexible ‘skin’ can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Engineers from the University of Washington and UCLA have developed a flexible sensor “skin” to accurately convey information about shear forces and vibration to grasp, manipulate objects. If a robot is sent to disable a roadside bomb — or delicately handle an egg while cooking you an omelet — it needs to be able to sense when objects are slipping out of its grasp.

NEUROSCIENCE
Advanced artificial limbs mapped in the brain

Advanced artificial limbs mapped in the brain

EPFL scientists from the Center for Neuroprosthetics have used functional MRI to show how the brain re-maps motor and sensory pathways following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation (TMSR), a neuroprosthetic approach where residual limb nerves are rerouted towards intact muscles and skin regions to control a robotic limb.

PHILOSOPHY
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.
