The robot was built by engineers at City University of Hong Kong. It can move efficiently along surfaces within the body lined with, or entirely immersed in, body fluids such as blood or mucus.
Is the rise of the robot the demise of the restaurant server, chef and bartender?
In a new paper, researchers at MIT have detailed a neural network capable of detecting depression. Unlike previous methods using machine learning, MIT’s neural net doesn’t require the subject to answer specific questions – it can make an assessment based on everyday conversation, or even text.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Engineers are deploying a trash collection device to corral plastic litter floating between California and Hawaii in an attempt to clean up the world’s larges
Although seizures can be controlled via pharmaceuticals, there are often some unpleasant side effects – plus the medications don’t work on all people. According to new research, however, a soft and flexible neurotransmitter-dispensing brain implant may someday do a better job.
As more culinary robots find their way into commercial food prep, one restaurant in San Francisco called Creator is hoping to strike a balance between high tech and the human touch.
Following a 3D-printed heel bone, a 3D-printed mouth guard and the world’s first 3D-printed jet engine, the CSIRO’s Lab 22 has added to the growing list of 3D-printed medical implants by designing and printing a replacement titanium sternum and rib cage for a 54-year-old cancer patient.
Plays can be bought for pennies and delivered in bulk, inflating videos’ popularity and making the social media giant vulnerable to manipulation.
When a clot blocks a blood vessel in the heart, a heart attack is the unfortunate result. Frequently, surgery is required in order to remove that clot. Thanks to an experimental new drug-delivery system, however, that approach may become increasingly unnecessary.
Airbus’ Zephyr program has claimed another record, with a production model unmanned solar-powered aircraft touching down after more than 25 days in the air. That voyage is the longest flight ever made by any aircraft, and was achieved on this particular vehicle’s maiden voyage, no less.
