Organic semiconductors are lightweight, flexible and easy to manufacture. But they often fail to meet expectations regarding efficiency and stability. Researchers are now deploying data mining approaches to identify promising organic compounds for the electronics of the future.
Chemical data mining boosts search for new organic semiconductors
Desert ants are extraordinary solitary navigators. Researchers were inspired by these ants as they designed AntBot, the first walking robot that can explore its environment randomly and go home automatically, without GPS or mapping. This work opens up new strategies for navigation in autonomous vehicles and robotics.

There is a time when a successful cooperation between humans and robots has decisive importance: it is in the precise moment that one “actor” is required to hand an object to another “actor” and, therefore, to coordinate their actions accordingly. But how can we make this interaction more natural for robots?
Getting a grip on human-robot cooperation
Desert ants can navigate remarkably well with the aid of the sun, a skill that robots are trying to duplicate
