Adobe Research has joined forces with scientists from Stanford University and Max Planck Institute to develop a program that can alter speech recorded on video. The development will help cut expenses on video clip recording.
For humans, it often takes one glance to make complex conclusions about the density, texture and weight of an object. The opposite is also true: after touching something with our eyes closed, we will instantly understand what it looks like. Robots are a different story. Scientists at the MIT Artificial Intelligence laboratory are hard at work trying to teach machines to effectively interact with the environment around them.
Nuclear power plants become obsolete and need to be decommissioned after a certain period of time. As this is a long and hazardous task, it is best solved it remotely, using special robots.
Canadian motorcycle manufacturer Damon is working on a next-generation motorcycle which will come equipped with a host of new technologies.
The US Air Force is currently considering the option of building landing strips using bacteria. Project Medusa was created to understand how microorganisms can be used to build durable flat surfaces.
In his recording, the pilot talks about the structure and characteristics of the plane while filming its systems on camera. The video is panoramic, giving viewers a chance to feel like professional pilots.
How to protect a serviceman's life without compromising the mobility of military hardware? Researchers from the North Carolina State University (NC State) have come up with a solution – they have created a unique bulletproof material much lighter than its counterparts.
Many fear that robots will one day take away our jobs. But who would have thought that technological advances can put animals out of work? So, for example, German Circus Roncalli completely stopped using four-legged performers replacing them with holograms.
Getting a flat tire is one of the most unpleasant situations on the road. However, motorists will soon forget about this problem with airless tires expected to be produced by 2024. Relevant plans were shared by representatives of the General Motors (GM) and Michelin.
From the outset, drones have been used for filming and entertainment, but who’s to say that they can’t be applied to more serious situations? Autonomous flying machines have a bright future in search operations, and it was recently proposed to use them to build sanctuaries in areas struck by disaster.
Most road accidents are caused by the driver's distraction. The famous car concern Jaguar Land Rover has come up with the concept of a smart steering wheel, which will prevent the driver from being distracted by irrelevant things.
New technologies are playing an increasingly important role in security matters. For example, drones are widely used to monitor and videotape new weapons testing.
Unfortunately, the world is a dangerous place, which means that society is in desperate need of weapons for self-defence. Tasers (electro-muscular devices that can reach an opponent from a distance) are a popular choice.
The Advanced Integrated CIC is a modern ship combat information center equipped with cutting-edge video surveillance systems, augmented reality technology and tactile feedback devices.
Drone manufacturers are currently hard at work developing mechanisms that will prevent air accidents. Chinese company DJI is no exception: their latest plan is to install special safety detectors onto their devices.
Can science and technology not only change a person's life, but contribute to their self-improvement? What are the pros and cons of artificial intervention in the evolutionary process? These questions are at the core of the concept of transhumanism.
The U.S. Army is actively equipping its infantry with Black Hornet UAVs to help soldiers inspect an area while remaining invisible to the enemy.
Elon Musk’s has long shared his plans to provide global Interne coverage with the world. There is still a long way to go before this goal – the launching of 12 thousand satellites into Earth orbit – is achieved, but the first step has been made.
A team of developers from Samsung AI Center-Moscow and Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology has created a program that can generate animated images based on one or several shots, whereas earlier this task required a whole image database.
Artificial intelligence is able to perform increasingly diverse tasks. As technologies have advanced this far, a computer was entrusted with the task of developing a new blend of whiskey in Sweden. The work will be performed by Swedish developers in partnership with Microsoft.
Construction is considered one of the most promising areas for 3D-printing application. It’ll soon help provide affordable housing to low-income families.
