Researchers have long been applying AI to protect wildlife. Initially, computer scientists were using AI and game theory to anticipate the poachers' haunts, and now they have applied artificial intelligence and deep learning to spot poachers in near real-time.
A team of researchers has developed a pair of '4-D goggles' that allows wearers to be physically 'touched' by a movie when they see a looming object on the screen, such as an approaching spacecraft.
Researchers discovered ways to further improve computing efficiency using management tools for cloud-based light-weight virtual machine replacements called containers.
The tiny worm C. elegans is the only living being whose neural network has been analyzed completely. It can therefore be transferred to a computer, creating a virtual copy of the worm which behaves in exactly the same way to external stimuli. Such a 'virtual worm' can learn amazing tricks -- its neural network can even be used to balance a pole, which is a standard control problem in computer science.
Using patient measurement data, researchers have succeeded in further refining the brain modeling platform 'The Virtual Brain'. The software, which has been downloaded almost 11,000 times to date, has been used in projects and publications across the globe.
Using augmented reality in the operating theatre could help surgeons to improve the outcome of reconstructive surgery for patients.
New technology is bringing the power of augmented reality into clinical practice. The system, called ProjectDR, allows medical images such as CT scans and MRI data to be displayed directly on a patient's body in a way that moves as the patient does.
Many new applications aim to make information systems and machines identify their users and take their individual needs and emotions into account.
Researchers found players with higher scores on computer-based vision and motor tasks had better on-base percentages, more walks and fewer strikeouts -- collectively referred to as plate discipline -- compared to their peers.
Virtual assistants have become increasingly sophisticated -- and more human-like -- since the days when Clippy asked if you needed help with your document. These assistants are intended to make programs and apps easier to use, but research suggests that human-like virtual assistants may actually deter some people from seeking help on tasks that are supposed to measure achievement.
Avatars -- virtual persons: A new system makes it possible to practice and improve motion sequences by providing individualized feedback in real time. The system is embodied by a virtual person acting as a coach. In addition, users see themselves as avatars -- virtual copies of themselves in the mirror of the virtual room. The creation of such personalized avatars used to take several days, but researchers have now developed an accelerated process.
Using a mathematical modeling approach, scientists have found that certain parameters of tumor growth in mice can predict the effectiveness of drugs that block formation of tumor-nourishing blood vessels.
Scientists have developed a drumming robot that plays along with human keyboard players and posts pictures of the sessions on Facebook.
Researchers have developed software that lets users control robots over the internet with off-the-shelf virtual reality hardware.
While engineers have had success building tiny, insect-like robots, programming them to behave autonomously like real insects continues to present technical challenges. Engineers have recently been experimenting with a new type of programming that mimics the way an insect’s brain works, which could soon have people wondering if that fly on the wall is actually a fly.
Virtual reality technology may help journalists pull an audience into their stories, but they should avoid being too flashy, or their credibility could suffer, according to a team of researchers.
Scientists have successfully applied magnetic assist recording to magnetic-holographic memory to reduce recording energy consumption and achieve error-free data reconstruction. This new technology is promising for practical application of magnetic-holographic memory as a rewritable, ultra-high-density, high-speed optical information storage medium.
When most people put on a virtual reality headset, they still treat what they see like it's happening on any run-of-the-mill TV screen, research finds.
Researchers explain computer control of cellular processes. Hybrid experimental platforms combining microscopes and software are enabling researchers to interface living cells with control algorithms in real time. The research illustrates that these solutions make it possible to create new and easily reprogrammable behaviors of cell populations. This external control of living tissue would then become a formidable research tool for acquiring a detailed understanding of the biological role of certain proteins.
Researchers have created alternative realities to mislead cyberintruders and cast doubt upon their disclosures.
