University of California, Berkeley, researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before.
Artificial intelligence is getting some better perspective. Like a person who can read someone else’s penmanship without studying lots of handwriting samples, next-gen image recognition AI can more easily identify familiar sights in new situations.
Uranium can perform reactions that previously no one thought possible, which could transform the way industry makes bulk chemicals, polymers, and the precursors to new drugs and plastics, according to new findings from The University of Manchester.
Since the 2009 discovery of a highly energy-efficient class of solar cell materials known as HOIPs — hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites —researchers have been working to understand exactly how these promising materials tick at the molecular level, in order to improve the durability of their performance.
