New Automated Tool Maps the Movement of Particles Inside Cells

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 14 2019 According to a new eLife study, a new automated tool that can track the movement of particles within cells could speed up research in several fields. Beyond manual tracing: An artist’s impression of a deep neural network trained to recognize particle motion in space-time representations. (Image Credit: Eva Pillai) The movements of proteins, small molecules, and cellular constituents across the body play a key role in health and disease. For instance, they support brain development and the progression of certain diseases. The new tool, developed with advanced machine learning technology, will enable these movements to be mapped more quickly, easily, and less prone to bias. At present, researchers may use images known as kymographs, which represent the movem...

Machine Learning Used to Interpret Genetic Influence over Behavior

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 14 2019 Mice scamper around while searching for food, but genetics may be the hidden hand regulating these meandering movements. Scientists at the University of Utah Health are using machine learning to derive connections between genetic controls that outline the incremental steps of instinctive and learned behaviors. The results of the research can be seen in the August 13th online issue of Cell Reports. Genetics control behavioral sequences that are building blocks for complex behavior patterns. (Image credit: University of Utah Health) Patterns of complex behavior, like searching for food, are composed of sequences that feel random, spontaneous and free. Using machine learning, we are finding discrete sequences that are reproduced more frequently than you would...

Artificial Intelligence Assists Banana Growers by Scanning for Disease and Pest

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 13 2019 Artificial intelligence-powered tools are quickly becoming widely available, including for people in very remote corners of the world. This is encouraging for smallholder farmers, who can use handheld technologies to manage their farms more efficiently, connecting them to climate information, satellite images, extension workers, and markets. The technology is also becoming a first line of protection against crop diseases and pests that can possibly destroy their harvests. (Image credit: CIAT) A new smartphone tool created for banana farmers scans plants for signs of five main diseases and one common pest. In testing in Colombia, China, India, Benin, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Uganda, the tool delivered a 90% successful detection rate. This w...

New Robotic Neck Brace can Significantly Benefit ALS Patients

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 13 2019 Columbia engineers have designed an innovative new neck brace that supports the neck during its natural movement. A study participant wearing the neck brace. (Image credit: Columbia Engineering) This is the first-ever device that has been shown to significantly help patients afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in holding their heads and also actively supporting them during the range of movement. This latest development would lead to a better quality of life for patients—for example, it would not only enhance eye contact during a conversation but would also enable the eyes to be used as a joystick to regulate movements on a computer, just like how scientist Stephen Hawkins famously did. A group of neurologists and engineers, headed by Suni...

New AI Method Predicts Music Genres by Analyzing Lyrics and Chords of Songs

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 13 2019 According to an artificial intelligence (AI) tool created by a USC computer science student, the record-breaking track “Old Town Road” is slightly country, and slightly rock ’n roll. An interactive visualization featuring the hit songs analyzed by Greer and Narayanan. (Image credit: Timothy Greer) The debate can finally be brought to a conclusion—Lil Nas X’s record-setting, chart-topping hit “Old Town Road” is certainly country. However, it is also a bit of rock ’n roll. And while examining the lyrics and chords together, it is straight-up pop. Anyhow, that is according to an AI tool created by USC computer science PhD student Timothy Greer. Greer’s technique involves automatically guessing music genres by investigating how lyrics and chords interact with ...

Robots Need a New Philosophy to Get a Grip

Written by AZoRoboticsAug 13 2019 Robots need to know the reason why they are doing a job if they are to effectively and safely work alongside people in the near future. In simple terms, this means machines need to understand motive the way humans do, and not just perform tasks blindly, without context. According to a new article by the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics, based at the University of Birmingham, this could herald a profound change for the world of robotics, but one that is necessary. Lead author Dr. Valerio Ortenzi, at the University of Birmingham argues the shift in thinking will be necessary as economies embrace automation, connectivity and digitisation (‘Industry 4.0’) and levels of human–robot interaction, whether in factories or homes, increase dramatically. The paper...
