Artificial intelligence is getting some better perspective. Like a person who can read someone else’s penmanship without studying lots of handwriting samples, next-gen image recognition AI can more easily identify familiar sights in new situations.
Professor Martijn Kemerink of Linköping University (LiU) has worked with colleagues in Spain and the Netherlands to develop the first material with conductivity properties that can be switched on and off using ferroelectric polarization.
Biochemical engineers at the Johns Hopkins University have used sequences of DNA molecules to induce shape-changing in water-based gels, demonstrating a new tactic to produce ‘soft’ robots and ‘smart’ medical devices that do not rely on cumbersome wires, batteries or tethers.
A new project led by Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) will combine artificial intelligence (AI) with massive amounts of data and industry experience to identify places where the electric grid is vulnerable to disruption.
