Machine learning identifies breast lesions likely to become cancer

A machine learning tool can help identify which high-risk breast lesions are likely to become cancerous, according to a new study. Researchers said the technology has the potential to reduce unnecessary surgeries. Machine learning identifies breast lesions likely to become cancer

Flexible 'skin' can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Engineers have developed a flexible sensor ‘skin’ that can be stretched over any part of a robot’s body or prosthetic to accurately convey information about shear forces and vibration, which are critical to tasks ranging from cooking an egg to dismantling a bomb. Flexible 'skin' can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear … [Read more…]
