Working closely with blind and low-vision (BLV) users, researchers at the University of Waterloo and the Rochester Institute of Technology have developed a new authentication method that could help BLV technology users more securely access […]
Researchers at the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine intelligence (MIRMI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a model that enables a robot to serve tea and coffee faster and more safely […]
More is not always better—sometimes, it’s a problem. With highly complex data, which have many dimensions due to their numerous parameters, correlations are often no longer recognizable. Especially since experimentally obtained data are additionally disturbed […]
Electronic devices made from the semiconductor gallium nitride stand to revolutionize wireless communications. They can operate at higher speeds and temperatures than devices made from silicon, so they can be used to control the higher […]
Researchers from EPFL and ETH Zurich, working together with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Bin Khalifa Unversity (Qatar), have developed a program that can generate population density estimates with unparalleled precision, […]
Cornell University researchers have created an interface that allows users to handwrite and sketch within computer code—a challenge to conventional coding, which typically relies on typing.This article was originally published on this website.
Many computer systems that people interact with on a daily basis require knowledge about certain aspects of the world, or models, to work. These systems have to be trained, often needing to learn how to […]
Robotic systems are set to be introduced in a wide range of real-world settings, ranging from roads to malls, offices, airports, and healthcare facilities. To perform consistently well in these environments, however, robots should be […]
Three researchers at University of Waterloo in Canada have recently developed a unique comic authoring tool that can automatically create stories and comics based on code. This system, called CodeToon, could open interesting possibilities for […]
The security of data relies on the use of proper, well-executed cryptography—the science and art of constructing algorithms that make information safe from prying and possibly malicious eyes.This article was originally published on this website.
