Mobiles Phones Can Soon Monitor Stress and Detect Breathing Problems

Mobiles Phones Can Soon Monitor Stress

The new software developed by optical society allows low-cost, portable, thermal cameras (usually attached to smartphones) to track how fast a person is breathing, and monitor his/her stress level. It could be used to detect breathing problems in older people, or who have sleep apnea, or small children at risk for SIDS (sudden infant death ...

Researcher Have Connected A Human Brain To The Internet | Brainternet

human brain connected to internet

Biomedical engineers at Wits University in Johannesburg, link human brain to the internet in real time. They have named the project “Brainternet”. It streams brainwaves on the internet, turning the brain into a IoT node on the World Wide Web. IoT stands for Internet of Things – linking any machine (having off and on switch) to the ...

HDD With High Storage Capacity Will Be Made Of Glass | 20TB and Beyond

glass hard drive

Hoya Corporation, Tokyo based company, unveiled its Hard Disk Drive prototype made of glass, which could push forward the development of high storage HDDs. They are now encouraging other manufacturers to ditch aluminum and use glass substrates. Over the last couple of years, the rate of improvements of hard drive density has significantly reduced. Although ...

Robotic Hand With Artificial Skin Gains A Sense of Touch

Robotic Hand With Artificial Skin

Scientists at the University of Houston have achieved a milestone in stretchable electronics, which can be used as an artificial skin to give robotic hand a sense of touch. This allows the robot to differentiate between what’s cold and what’s hot, while providing different advantages to tons of biomedical instruments. The new approach for creating ...

Inside A11 Bionic Chip | Apple’s Approach to Artificial Intelligence

A11 Bionic Chip

Launched on September 12, iPhone X, 8 and 8+ will run on new A11 Bionic chip, yet again raising the performance bar. Every new iPhone version comes with slightly better hardware, cameras and faster processors. However, for the first time, Apple’s smartphone, iPhone X will feature a custom-built chip developed for handling artificial intelligence workloads. ...

Machine Learning Can Now Better Predict Earthquakes

Machine Learning Can Now Better Predict Earthquakes

Scientists at Los Alamos National Lab have discovered a machine learning technique that can forecast the time remaining before the fault fails, by detecting acoustic signal emitted by lab-generated earthquake. ‘At any specific moment, the signals (noise) emerging from lab fault zone give significant data that tells when the fault will slip’ says Paul Johnson, lead ...

AI Can Accurately Analyze Gravitational Lenses 10 Million Times Faster

AI Can Accurately Analyze Gravitational Lenses

Scientists at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have demonstrated that neural networks can accurately analyze gravitational lenses (complex distortion in spacetime) about 10 million times faster than conventional techniques. Today’s methods require input from experts and are computationally demanding. They usually take weeks or even months to complete. However, the same results can be achieved ...

The 4D Printing Technique For Making Self-Assemble Objects

4d printing

Researchers at Singapore University of Technology and Design have developed a new 4d printing technique that can make complex structures in minutes. It can be used to create temperature-activated coronary stents, flat-pack furnitures, drug capsules and much more. Zhen Ding with his colleagues, has found a unique way to quickly print rigid 4d objects with a 3d printer ...

Facebook AI Learns Human Facial Reactions From Hundreds of Video Chats

Facebook AI Learns Human Facial Reactions

Researchers at Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Lab have created a new human-like bot. The algorithm is trained on tons of video conversations, so that it could analyze and learn how humans change their expressions in different scenarios. The study focuses on face-to-face conversations between an agent (animation controlled by AI) and human. The agent learns to alter its facial ...

A New Technology Might Power Your Air Conditioner Without Electricity

Worldwide, cooling systems consumes almost 17% of the total generated electricity and it’s also responsible for 10% of greenhouse gas emissions. With the increasing population, the demand for refrigerators and air conditioners will increase and according to estimations, by 2050 the rate will increase by tenfold. That’s a huge number. Right! So what we can do (at-least ...

Flip-Flop Qubit Is The New Design For Quantum Computing

New Design For Quantum Computing

These days, a lot of research is going on quantum computing. Engineers at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney have developed something impressive – a new quantum computing architecture based on flip-flop qubit, which could make large-scale manufacturing of quantum processors a lot easier. With this new design, silicon quantum processor could be scaled up ...

Deep Neural Networks Can Tell If You’re Gay Or Straight From Facial Images

Deep Neural Networks Can Tell If You're Gay

A new, unusual artificial intelligence can detect sexual orientation from a set of facial pictures. Michal Kosinski and Yilun Wang at Stanford University have developed a deep neural network that shows computers could have significantly better “sex-detection-ability” than humans. The new AI algorithm can differentiate between gay and straight men with 81% of accuracy and 74% in case of ...
