CSAIL invented deep-learning vision system that predicts human actions

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab’s (CSAIL’s) deep-learning vision system predicted human interaction using videos of TV shows. Humans are quite efficient in anticipating human actions, but a machine does not know anything about human behavior, unless it is not trained to anticipate. Machines made with deep learning vision capability could transform future of robotics.

Detection of gravitational waves for second time may help scientists to know more about black holes

Detection of gravitational waves for second time may help scientists to know more about black holes

A new era of astronomy has kick-started as scientists have directly detected gravitational waves and for the first time. Scientists said that the gravitational waves were created owing to the creation of two black holes.

First time also, the signal was created with the collision of two black holes, but the only difference this time is that it was a completely different binary black hole system. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) has detected the signals.

Key to perfect cup of coffee: Colder the beans the finer and more uniform particles from grind

Key to perfect cup of coffee: Colder the beans the finer and more uniform particles from grind

Want to have a better tasting cup of coffee? A new study has found a solution, before grinding your roasted coffee beans put them in fridge for some time and it will result into a perfect cup of coffee.

A new study has found that colder temperature results into finer and more uniform particles that result into enhanced flavored coffee. The study findings can prove immensely beneficial for the coffee industry as they use them to even better their coffee products.

Researchers demonstrate algorithm that has learnt how to predict sound

Researchers demonstrate algorithm that has learnt how to predict sound

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed an algorithm that has learnt how to predict sound. In the future, researchers predict that future versions of similar algorithms could be used to automatically produce sound effects for movies and TV shows.

Study’s lead author Andrew Owens said that such an algorithm that simulates sounds can unveil vital information about objects’ shapes and material types. In the study, the research team has used techniques from the field of ‘deep learning’.

2016 Kavli Prize: Nine scientists honored for groundbreaking work

2016 Kavli Prize: Nine scientists honored for groundbreaking work

This year nine scientists have received the Kavli Prize for their revolutionary work on topics, including gravitational waves, brain plasticity and atomic force microscopy.

The Kavli Prize is awarded every couple of years in Norway. It honors the researchers who have done any revolutionary work making vital contributions to various fields ranging from astrophysics to nanoscience and neuroscience. Winners share a $1-million cash prize in each of the three categories.

Completing a game of ‘Super Mario Brothers’ can be very hard: MIT

Completing a game of ‘Super Mario Brothers’ can be very hard: MIT

You can’t complete the game of ‘Super Mario Brothers’ easily. That’s exactly what the researchers at MIT, the University of Ottawa, and Bard College at Simon’s Rock, have concluded in their latest paper.

They have demonstrated that the problem of solving a ‘Super Mario Brothers’ level is as difficult as the toughest problems in the ‘complexity class’ PSPACE, which means it is harder and complex as compared to the traveling-salesman problem, or any other tough problems that belong to the better-known complexity class NP.

Small ingestible robot developed to grasp and remove swallowed battery

Small ingestible robot developed to grasp and remove swallowed battery

Every year, nearly 3,500 young children swallow button batteries in the United States. In most of the cases such batteries go into the body without incident due to their small size. However, in case they come into prolonged touch with esophagus or stomach tissue, the consequences can be dangerous. The batteries can result into an electric current producing hydroxide, which harms body tissue.
