Robotit, erityisesti autonomiset, joiden ei välttämättä tarvitse olla humanoidirobotteja, ovat aina kiinnostaneet minua. Itsekseen, tai muiden robottikavereiden ja ihmistenkin kanssa, maailmaa ihmettelevä ja oudossa ympäristössä selviytymistä yrittävä robotti on varsin mielenkiintoinen sekä ohjelmistojensa että rakenteellisten ominaisuuksiensa kannalta. Sellaisen tekemisessä on edelleen melkoisia haasteita, mutta eiköhän lähitulevaisuudessa nähdä itsestään ajelevien autojen lisäksi myös itsenäisesti toimivia palvelurobotteja sekä siviili- että sotilastehtävissä. Tämä jälkimmäinen aihealue näkyy etenevän melkoista vauhtia eräässä suuressa läntisessä valtiossa, mutta muillakin tekniikan kärkimailla on vastaavia kehityshankkeita.

New type of mobile tracking link shoppers' physical movements, buying choices
Posted on Monday March 25, 2019

A new study used a targeting strategy that tracks where, when, and for how long consumers are in a shopping mall to determine how shoppers' physical movements affect their economic choices. The study found that targeting potential customers in this way can significantly improve advertising via mobile phones.

Researchers get humans to think like computers
Posted on Friday March 22, 2019

Computers, like those that power self-driving cars, can be tricked into mistaking random scribbles for trains, fences and even school buses. People aren't supposed to be able to see how those images trip up computers but in a new study, researchers show most people actually can.

Brain-inspired AI inspires insights about the brain (and vice versa)
Posted on Wednesday March 20, 2019

Researchers have described the results of experiments that used artificial neural networks to predict with greater accuracy than ever before how different areas in the brain respond to specific words. The work employed a type of recurrent neural network called long short-term memory (LSTM) that includes in its calculations the relationships of each word to what came before to better preserve context.

Robotic 'gray goo'
Posted on Wednesday March 20, 2019

Researchers have demonstrated for the first time a way to make a robot composed of many loosely coupled components, or 'particles.' Unlike swarm or modular robots, each component is simple, and has no individual address or identity. In their system, which the researchers call a 'particle robot,' each particle can perform only uniform volumetric oscillations (slightly expanding and contracting), but cannot move independently.
