Computer models could replace animal testing

Computer models could replace animal testing

Jul 16, 2018 United States
A study suggests that advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests. The computer-based approach could replace many animal tests commonly used during consumer product testing. It could also evaluate more chemicals than animal testing, a change that could lead to wider safety assessments.

Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are

Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are

Jul 4, 2018 United States
If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.

Personalized deep learning equips robots for autism therapy

Personalized deep learning equips robots for autism therapy

Jul 3, 2018 United States
Children with autism spectrum conditions often have trouble recognizing the emotional states of people around them — distinguishing a happy face from a fearful face, for instance. To remedy this, some therapists use a kid-friendly robot to demonstrate those emotions and to engage the children in imitating the emotions and responding to them in appropriate ways.

Using AI to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Using AI to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Jul 2, 2018 Japan
Scientists have shown that an artificial intelligence program called a Convolutional Neural Network can be trained to categorize volcanic ash particle shapes. Because the shapes of volcanic particles are linked to the type of volcanic eruption, this categorization can help provide information on eruptions and aid volcanic hazard mitigation efforts.

Autonomous vehicles: researchers make advances with new algorithm

Autonomous vehicles: researchers make advances with new algorithm

Jun 27, 2018 Canada
A self-driving vehicle has to detect objects, track them over time, and predict where they will be in the future in order to plan a safe manoeuvre. These tasks are typically trained independently from one another, which could result in disasters should any one task fail.

Computer program looks five minutes into the future

Jun 26, 2018 Germany
Computer scientists have developed software that can look a few minutes into the future: The program first learns the typical sequence of actions, such as cooking, from video sequences. Based on this knowledge, it can then accurately predict in new situations what the chef will do at which point in time.

Crumple up this keyboard and stick it in your pocket

Jun 22, 2018 Korea
Bendable portable keyboards for use with computers and other electronic devices are already on the market, but they have limited flexibility, and they're fairly sizable when rolled up for transport. Now researchers have crafted an inexpensive keyboard that is so tough, flexible and thin that it can be crumpled up and tucked in a pocket without damaging it.

MIT engineers build smart power outlet

Jun 21, 2018 United States
An MIT team has developed a solution that they are calling a "smart power outlet," in the form of a device that can analyze electrical current usage from a single or multiple outlets, and can distinguish between benign arcs — harmless electrical spikes such as those caused by common household appliances — and dangerous arcs, such as sparking that results from faulty wiring and could lead to a fire. The device can also be trained to…
