Scientists have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery.
Smart microrobots that can adapt to their surroundings
Unsere Autorin wagt einen Blick in die Zukunft und probiert, sich mit einem Roboter anzufreunden. Dann gerät der Versuch etwas außer Kontrolle.
Künstliche Intelligenz: Anna schreibt: "Ich kann nicht schlafen". Bot antwortet: Du kannst mit mir über alles reden"
Columbus is piloting a fleet of autonomous electric shuttles as part of a multimillion-dollar smart transportation initiative
Passerine’s fixed-wing drones can take off (and land) using a pair of legs
Researchers have developed an intelligent system for ‘tuning’ powered prosthetic knees, allowing patients to walk comfortably with the prosthetic device in minutes, rather than the hours necessary if the device is tuned by a trained clinical practitioner. The system is the first to rely solely on reinforcement learning to tune the robotic prosthesis.
Reinforcement learning expedites 'tuning' of robotic prosthetics
Vor rund 300 Millionen Jahren – lange vor den Dinosauriern – krabbelte das echsenartige Tier Orobates pabsti über die Erde. Forscher haben es nun wiederbelebt.

Insulators that are conducting at their edges hold promise for interesting technological applications. However, until now their characteristics have not been fully understood. Physicists have now modeled what are known as topological insulators with the help of ultracold quantum gases. They now demonstrate how the edge states could be experimentally detected.

Dex-Net 4.0 enables “ambidextrous” robots to choose the best gripper for the job
Engineers present a novel, ‘ambidextrous’ approach to grasping a diverse range of object shapes without training.
