Thanks in part to groundwork laid by the animators of Disney’s *Frozen*, this simulation may help develop better avalanche warning systems.
A simulated basketball player can teach itself through trial and error how to finely manipulate the ball, both while stationary and while running.
Scientists look at the eruptions of Mount Pinatubo and El Chichón to give us a glimpse at how geoengineering might affect a critical global system: agriculture.
It’s charming, it’s (relatively) smart, and it’s mobile. The question is: Can Vector succeed where other home robots have failed?
Airbnb: great for travelers, and even better for putting a robot's new manipulation skills to the test.
“As we have more natural disasters, one would expect to also have increases in those kinds of mental health consequences.”
The system, developed by OpenAI, ends up “inventing” characteristic grasps that we humans already commonly use to handle objects.
The highly engineered food with GM yeast finally makes its way through an FDA maze. Not everyone is jazzed, though.
ACDC and Lamb's Bread and Ghost OG, oh my: Researchers compare the genetics of cannabis strains and find ... irregularities.
Sending a robot into the icy depths and getting it back alive can be more challenging than communicating with a Mars rover millions of miles away.
You don’t typically find philosophical bickering at an FDA public meeting. But then again, lab-grown meat is no ordinary topic.
A new online sim computes how and where a robot should grip objects like vases and turbine housings. You can even upload designs of your own objects.
