Understanding the Inner Workings of the Human Heart

Researchers used artificial intelligence and genetic analyses to examine the structure of the inner surface of the heart using 25,000 MRI scans. They found that the complex network of muscle fibers ...

'Cyborg' Technology Could Enable New Diagnostics, Merger of Humans and AI

Although true 'cyborgs' are science fiction, researchers are moving toward integrating electronics with the body. Such devices could monitor tumors or replace damaged tissues. But ...

An AI Algorithm to Help Identify Homeless Youth at Risk of Substance Abuse

While many programs and initiatives have been implemented to address the prevalence of substance abuse among homeless youth in the United States, they don't always include data-driven insights ...

Sounds of Action: Using Ears, Not Just Eyes, Improves Robot Perception

People rarely use just one sense to understand the world, but robots usually only rely on vision and, increasingly, touch. Researchers find that robot perception could improve markedly by adding ...

AI System for High Precision Recognition of Hand Gestures

Scientists have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that recognises hand gestures by combining skin-like electronics with computer ...

Soldiers Could Teach Future Robots How to Outperform Humans

Researchers have designed an algorithm that allows an autonomous ground vehicle to improve its existing navigation systems by watching a human ...
