Screen time before bed linked with less sleep, higher BMIs in kids
It may be tempting to let your kids stay up late playing games on their smartphones, but using digital devices before bed may contribute to sleep and nutrition problems in children, according to researchers.
New computational method provides optimized design of wind up toys
A team of leading computer scientists has developed a novel computational system to aid the design and fabrication of wind-up toys, focusing on automating the intricate interior machinery responsible for the toys' wind-up motion.
Speedy collision detector could make robots better human assistants
A faster collision detection algorithm could enable robots to work more fluidly in the operating room or at home for assisted living. The algorithm, dubbed 'Fastron,' runs up to eight times faster than existing collision detection algorithms. It uses machine learning to help robots avoid moving objects and weave through complex, rapidly changing environments in real time.
Wikipedia used to give AI context clues
A team of computer scientists is teaching artificial intelligence agents how to interact with the world in a way that makes sense.
How can humans keep the upper hand on artificial intelligence?
Researchers have shown how human operators can maintain control over a system comprising several agents that are guided by artificial intelligence.
Supercomputing speeds up deep learning training
Researchers used Stampede2 to complete a 100-epoch ImageNet deep neural network training in 11 minutes -- the fastest time recorded to date. Using 1600 Skylake processors they also bested Facebook's prior results by finishing a 90-epoch ImageNet training with ResNet-50 in 32 minutes. Given TACC's large user base and huge capacity, this capability will have a major impact across all fields of science.
Amputees can learn to control a robotic arm with their minds
Neuroscientists have shown how amputees can learn to control a robotic arm through electrodes implanted in the brain. The research details changes that take place in both sides of the brain used to control the amputated limb and the remaining, intact limb. The results show both areas can create new connections to learn how to control the device, even several years after an amputation.
High-speed quantum encryption may help secure the future internet
Quantum encryption may be one step closer to wide-scale use thanks to a newly developed system. The system is capable of distributing encryption codes at megabit-per-second rates, five to 10 times faster than existing methods and on par with current internet speeds when running several systems in parallel. New theory shows that the technique is secure from common security attacks.
Linguistics team using Ohio Supercomputer Center to translate lesser-known languages
Scientists are developing technology for languages about which translators and linguists know nothing.
Advances to brain-interface technology provide clearer insight into visual system
Engineers and cognitive neuroscientists have demonstrated that a new high-density EEG can capture the brain's neural activity at a higher spatial resolution than ever before. This next-generation brain-interface technology is the first noninvasive, high-resolution system of its kind, providing higher density and coverage than any existing system. It has the potential to revolutionize future clinical and neuroscience research as well as brain-computer interfaces.
