What happens if a robot is damaged in a dangerous area? It has to be able to adapt and now, scientists may have succeeded in creating a robot that does just that.
Can you imagine a biodegradable computer chip made out of wood? It sounds farfetched, but it's a goal that researchers are aiming for. Now, scientists have created a new, semiconductor chip made almost entirely out of wood.
Imagine if handheld tools knew what needed to be done and could guide an inexperienced user.
Imagine a robot that learns by trial and error--just like a human. UC Berkeley researchers have now developed algorithms that enable robots to learn motor tasks in this way, marking a milestone in artificial intelligence.
3D printing has been moving forward by leaps and bounds and now, scientists have used it to create something a bit unusual: artificial eggs.
Previous studies have shown that looking or posting excessively to Facebook can spur depression and anxiety in some individuals. Other forms of social media have also been known to cause a pinch of low self-esteem in individuals who may worry their life doesn't quite incorporate enough selfies and v...
Could some dating apps be to blame for a recent surge of STDs in Rhode Island?
Drones may be getting a bit smarter. Scientists have created a new vision and learning system that allow drones to learn a control themselves without relying on a GPS signal or trained personnel.
New findings published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B reveal that too much time spent playing video games could be linked to a higher risk of neurological disorders.
The field of prosthetics is moving forward by leaps and bounds and now, researchers have created robotic arms that move by mere thought.
A new class of magnets that expand their volume when placed in a magnetic field and generate negligible amounts of wasteful heat during energy harvesting could be the future of new actuators.
Could the rumble of an airplane's engine affect how our in-flight meal tastes? New findings published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance suggests that it could influence the flavor of our food.
