Drones keep getting smaller and smaller, while their potential applications keep getting bigger and bigger.
Predicting what someone is about to do next based on their body language comes naturally to humans but not so for computers.
To make computer chips, technologists around the world rely on atomic layer deposition, which can create films as fine as one atom thick.
A new study performed at the University of Liverpool could help researchers alleviate the future spread of livestock and zoonotic diseases caused by viruses.
James Cook University scientists in Australia believe they have made a breakthrough in the science of keeping premature babies alive.
A socially intelligent robot is lending a helping hand to pupils at a special needs school in Somerset, England, as part of a project led by the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) researchers.
Increasingly, meteorologists are turning to AI to improve weather modeling, from predicting short and long-term patterns to predicting life-threatening extreme weather events.

'Precision agriculture' where farmers respond in real time to changes in crop growth using nanotechnology and artificial intelligence (AI) could offer a practical solution to the challenges threatening global food security, a new study reveals.
Ozone levels in the earth's troposphere can now be forecasted with accuracy up to two weeks in advance, a remarkable improvement over current systems that can accurately predict ozone levels only three days ahead.
The software that drives self-driving cars and digital assistants is machine learning, a method employed in artificial intelligence (AI).
Without GPS, autonomous systems get lost easily. Now a new algorithm developed at Caltech allows autonomous systems to recognize where they are simply by looking at the terrain around them--and for the first time, the technology works regardless of seasonal changes to that terrain.
Our homes and offices are only as solid as the ground beneath them. When that solid ground turns to liquid -- as sometimes happens during earthquakes -- it can topple buildings and bridges.
A challenging aspect in science and engineering fields is managing matter beyond the thermodynamic equilibrium to develop material systems that can rival those of living organisms.
Ultimaker, the global leader in professional 3D printing, today announced that Final Aim, Inc., a hands-on technology firm in Japan utilized the Ultimaker S3 to rapidly design the first autonomous delivery robot in use for Singapore.
A research team from Northwestern Engineering and the University of Messina in Italy have developed a new magnetic memory device that could lead to faster, more robust Artificial Intelligence systems.
