Metalens with artificial muscle simulates (and goes way beyond) human-eye and camera optical functions

3 Březen, 2018 - 04:56
Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a breakthrough electronically controlled artificial eye. The thin, flat, adaptive silicon nanostructure (“metalens”) can simultaneously control focus, astigmatism, and image shift (three of the major contributors to blurry images) in real time, which the human eye (and eyeglasses) cannot do.

Measuring deep-brain neurons’ electrical signals at high speed with light instead of electrodes

1 Březen, 2018 - 03:30
Researchers at MIT have developed a new approach to measure electrical activity deep in the brain: using light — an easier, faster, and more informative method than inserting electrodes. They’ve developed a new light-sensitive protein that can be embedded into neuron membranes, where it emits a fluorescent signal that indicates how much voltage a particular cell [...]

Low-cost EEG can now be used to reconstruct images of what you see

27 Únor, 2018 - 22:27
A new technique developed by University of Toronto Scarborough neuroscientists has, for the first time, used EEG detection of brain activity in reconstructing images of what people perceive. The new technique “could provide a means of communication for people who are unable to verbally communicate,” said Dan Nemrodov, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in Assistant Professor Adrian [...]

Do our brains use the same kind of deep-learning algorithms used in AI?

23 Únor, 2018 - 23:57
Deep-learning researchers have found that certain neurons in the brain have shape and electrical properties that appear to be well-suited for “deep learning” — the kind of machine-intelligence used in beating humans at Go and Chess. Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) Fellow Blake Richards and his colleagues — Jordan Guerguiev at the University of Toronto, [...]

Two new wearable sensors may replace traditional medical diagnostic devices

21 Únor, 2018 - 20:42
Throat-motion sensor monitors stroke effects more effectively A radical new type of stretchable, wearable sensor that measures vocal-cord movements could be a “game changer” for stroke rehabilitation, according to Northwestern University scientists. The sensors can also measure swallowing ability (which may be affected by stroke), heart function, muscle activity, and sleep quality. Developed in the [...]

Neuroscientists reverse Alzheimer’s disease in mice

19 Únor, 2018 - 22:05
Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute have completely reversed the formation of amyloid plaques in the brains of mice with Alzheimer’s disease by gradually depleting an enzyme called BACE1. The procedure also improved the animals’ cognitive function. The study, published February 14 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, raises hopes that drugs targeting this [...]

How to train a robot to do complex abstract thinking

16 Únor, 2018 - 21:29
Robots are great at following programmed steps. But asking a robot to “move the green bottle from the cooler to the cupboard” would require it to have abstract representations of these things and actions, plus knowledge of its surroundings. (“Hmm, which of those millions of pixels is a ‘cooler,’ whatever than means? How do I [...]
