Computers are excellent at most tasks but there is one such thing at which they are consistently beaten by humans, Pattern Recognition. But it seems our trump card to supremacy may be soon slipping away. Brain Scientists like Charles Cadieu have been pitting computers against monkeys at key image recognition tests for a decade. Up until now, monkeys were doing at least ten times better than a machine, at what Cadieu calls the “neural substrate that makes recognition possible.” This was done by...

Videocon has announced VPhone Grande, a budget phone priced at Rs. 1950.00 for Indian mobile consumers. Budget phones we've seen so far (and we're talking about those priced under Rs. 5000) were all pale looking and boring without exception. Videocon seems to have found a ray of hope in making these phones look funky and stylish to attract consumers. Make no mistake, the phone is quite decent one for the price and can easily give a non-geek an impression of a premium phone. Let's have a look at...

A team from University of Washington researchers, led by Maya Cakmak and Rajesh P. N. Rao, has developed a new way of Goal-based Imitation Learning. The computer scientists have shown how a robot can efficiently complete the task through crowdsourcing. The robot can learn by imitating a human to perform a particular task but it will take a considerable amount of time as the robot in the study uses machine-learning techniques. However, according to the team, a lot of time could be saved if the...

Taking cue from nature for your next robotics project might be the most sane thing to do. As engineers and researchers from across the globe are developing interesting robots that mimic different animals and birds from nature, a new breed of robotics known as 'bio-bots' has taken to rise. Now a group of engineers from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed “bio-bots” that can walk and are powered by muscle cells and controlled using electrical pulses. In their research of...
