New UI for K-Glass 2 that Works with Eye Blinking

New UI for K-Glass 2 that Works with Eye Blinking

A newly developed user interface, the “i-Mouse,” in the K-Glass 2 tracks the user’s gaze and connects the device to the Internet through blinking eyes such as winks. This low-power interface provides smart glasses with an excellent user experience, with a long-lasting battery and augmented reality. Smart glasses are wearable computers that will likely lead [...]

Reading Speed Harnessed to Automatically Control Text Display Rates

Reading Speed Harnessed to Automatically Control Text Display Rates

Reading a text is something that each of us does at our own individual pace. This simple fact has been exploited by computer scientists in Saarbrücken who have developed a software system that recognizes how fast a text on a display screen is being read and then allows the text to scroll forward line by [...]

A Picture is Worth 1000 Words, But How Many Emotions?

Researchers use big data to progressively train computers to understand sentiments conveyed by images ‪Log on to Twitter, Facebook or other social media and you will find that much of the content shared with you comes in the form of images, not just words. Those images can convey a lot more than a sentence might, [...]

Programming Safety into Self-driving Cars: Better AI Algorithms for Semi-Autonomous Vehicles

Programming Safety into Self-driving Cars: Better AI Algorithms for Semi-Autonomous Vehicles

For decades, researchers in artificial intelligence, or AI, worked on specialized problems, developing theoretical concepts and workable algorithms for various aspects of the field. Computer vision, planning and reasoning experts all struggled independently in areas that many thought would be easy to solve, but which proved incredibly difficult. However, in recent years, as the individual [...]

New Programming Language for Fast Simulations

New Programming Language for Fast Simulations

Norwegian researchers have developed an entirely new language for faster programming and simulations.   Programming is a time-consuming process, and it may take many years to develop even a basic simulator. Researchers want to simplify this process. They have created a language similar to the language of mathematics. This allows them to subdivide the work [...]

NASA, Microsoft: Scientists to ‘Work on Mars’

NASA, Microsoft: Scientists to ‘Work on Mars’

NASA and Microsoft have teamed up to develop software called OnSight, a new technology that will enable scientists to work virtually on Mars using wearable technology called Microsoft HoloLens. Developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, OnSight will give scientists a means to plan and, along with the Mars Curiosity rover, conduct science [...]

Vision System for Household Robots

Vision System for Household Robots

For household robots ever to be practical, they’ll need to be able to recognize the objects they’re supposed to manipulate. But while object recognition is one of the most widely studied topics in artificial intelligence, even the best object detectors still fail much of the time.   Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence [...]

Using Robots to Get More Food from Raw Materials

Using Robots to Get More Food from Raw Materials

Can an industrial robot succeed both at removing the breast fillet from a chicken, and at the same time get more out of the raw materials? This is one of the questions to which researchers working on the CYCLE project now have the answer.   They have built a fully-functional robot in the lab to [...]

Underwater Robots: ‘Eel-Lectrifying’ Future

Underwater Robots: ‘Eel-Lectrifying’ Future

On 24 October 2014, Sweden called off the hunt for a submarine after a week-long underwater search in the Stockholm archipelago. Triggered by a reported sighting of a Russian submarine, the alleged ‘invasion’ had been widely anticipated by military specialists and the media.   “Our assessment is that in the inner archipelago there was a [...]
