Smart Bikes to Improve Cycling Safety, Efficiency

Manufacturers haven't yet incorporated the advanced technologies of smart cars into bicycles on a level widespread enough to make smart bikes affordable. But the industry recognizes that as the challenge of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions grows, the need to encourage more people to use bicycles instead of cars is becoming more urgent—and a critical component of this imperative is making cycling safer and easier for cyclists to share road conditions and other factors with other cyclists and with municipal managers.

Sensors and AI Boost Profitability of Agricultural Facilities

Sensors and AI Boost Profitability of Agricultural Facilities

Developing and installing sensors that accurately measure the amount of feed in the silos in each pig farm and designing algorithms that can achieve a more efficient distribution of feed from production plants to each farm. The study was carried out on some 500 silos on farms in the province of Girona, Spain, as well as in Wales, on the Swedish island of Gotland and in the area surrounding Manchester, England.

Three Reasons Radar is Critical for the Future of Mobility

Radar is fundamental to automotive safety and critical to achieving emerging level 4 autonomy. While today more than 50% of new cars are shipped with one or more radars, by 2042 all new vehicles will come with multiple radars as they become a key enabler for future mobility modes, according to IDTechEx's latest report, "Automotive Radar 2022-2042".

3D Printing of Prosthetic Eyes

3D Printing of Prosthetic Eyes

Not only is a 3D-printed prosthetic eye produced in a fraction of the time taken by the conventional process, but the resulting prosthesis also looks more realistic. This is made possible by the algorithms of Cuttlefish:Eye, a software solution from the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD.

Deep Learning Dreams up New Protein Structures

Just as convincing images of cats can be created using artificial intelligence, new proteins can now be made using similar tools. In a report in Nature, researchers describe the development of a neural network that "hallucinates" proteins with new, stable structures.

Robotics and Artificial Intelligence to Improve Health Rehabilitation

Researchers have developed a robotic device that provides an innovative motor and cognitive rehabilitation service that can be used at health centres as well as at home. The team has developed a platform made up of four elements: a robot that interacts with the patient, an artificial intelligence system that uses a 3D sensor to control the robot, an application that can be used by health care staff to set up and track sessions, and a cloud-based storage system which contains information and analytics from all of the rehabilitation processes.

Fighting Blood Diseases with Artificial Intelligence

Fighting Blood Diseases with Artificial Intelligence

Every day, cytologists around the world use optical microscopes to analyze and classify samples of bone marrow cells thousands of times. This method to diagnose blood diseases was established more than 150 years ago, but it suffers from being very complex. Looking for rare but diagnostically important cells is both a laborious and time-consuming task. Artificial intelligence has the potential to boost this method - however it needs a large amount of high-quality data to train an AI algorithm.

Eye Movements Read by AI Reveal Thoughts, Memories - and Brain Disease

Whenever you explore an environment or search for something, you scan the scene using continuous rapid eye movements. Your eyes also make short stops to fixate on certain elements of the scene that you want more detailed information about. The way you move your eyes and the selection of details you fixate your gaze upon can be summed up as your viewing behaviour.

Machine Learning Helps to Locally Restore Wetlands

Machine Learning Helps to Locally Restore Wetlands

Worldwide, coastal wetlands like salt marshes and mangroves are increasingly recognized as valuable natural defenses that protect coasts. Tidal salt marshes enhance flood safety by being 'wave absorbers' that protect the dikes behind them, and by being 'flood fighters' that lower the flood depth by limiting the size of breaches when a dike would fail during severe storms. This raises the question if we can establish and restore these wetlands where needed, now that the sea level is rising, and storms become stronger and more frequent.
