The seventh successful launch of Blue Origin’s New Shepard reusable suborbital spacecraft. (Image credit: Blue Origin)   The Skywalker’s have always been a family of many talents- young Anakin became a notable Sith Lord, his son Luke became a Jedi Knight, his daughter lead a great Rebellion
ot-so-great Resistance, and distant cousin Mannequin made it through a successful test flight aboard a reusable suborbital spacecraft. “Always two there are; no more, no less-” ...
While the city won’t be outright banning these bots, they are now not allowed on crowded city sidewalks. These bots have a lot of rules to follow before they hit the streets (Image via Reuters)   When it was first introduced, the idea of delivery robots sounded absurd. Now, it’s close to becoming a reality, but maybe not in San Francisco. Companies are currently testing out these bots, but are hitting a road block when it comes to San Fran. Recently, the city’s Board of S ...
Google’s AutoML utilizes reinforcement learning to build superior versions of itself.   Earlier this year (May 2017), the Google Brain Team unveiled their AutoML AI (Artificial Intelligence) platform capable of creating its own AIs. Moving forward, the Team recently announced that the same AI platform has succeeded in creating an offspring (or child) that has outperformed anything made by Google engineers. AutoML used deep learning to build the new AI, which uses multiple layers of ...
The needle is cost effective and allows doctors to see targeted tissue that’s normally difficult to spot during procedures. If you have trypanophonia you may want to look away. (Photo via Nature)   No one ever looks forward to having surgery, but if it has to be done, minimally invasive procedures are more appealing. Usually, they leave less scar tissue, have a quicker recovery time, and have a lower risk of infection. But there are also several downsides, like getting a detailed loo ...
These new artificial muscles not only prove to be strong, but are also easy to make and cost effective. Though it looks like a snake made in origami, it’s actually a new soft robot (Photo from MIT CSAIL)   Because soft robotics are flexible, it allows these machines to move in ways similar to living organisms. The only problem is the more flexibility these bots have, the more their strength is reduced. This may no longer be an issue thanks to a new discovery from MIT scientists. A te ...
