Intelligent neuroprostheses mimic natural motor control

Neuroscientists are taking inspiration from natural motor control to design new prosthetic devices that can better replace limb function. Researchers have tested a range of brain-controlled devices — from wheelchairs to robots to advanced limbs — that work with their users to intelligently perform tasks.

Wearable technology can help with public speaking

Speaking in public is the top fear for many people. Now, researchers have developed an intelligent user interface for ‘smart glasses’ that gives real-time feedback to the speaker on volume modulation and speaking rate, while being minimally distracting.

Citizen scientists map global forests

New global forest maps combine citizen science with multiple data sources, for an unprecedented level of accuracy about the location and extent of forestland worldwide. “The new maps rely on a combination of recent multisensory remote sensing data, statistics, and crowdsourcing,” says the lead author of the study. “By combining Read Full Article Here For…

Next important step toward quantum computer

Physicists have succeeded in linking two completely different quantum systems to one another. In doing so, they have taken an important step forward on the way to a quantum computer. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Computers & Math News

Earthlike ‘Star Wars’ tatooines may be common

Luke Skywalker’s home in “Star Wars” is the desert planet Tatooine, with twin sunsets because it orbits two stars. So far, only uninhabitable gas-giant planets have been identified circling such binary stars, and many researchers believe rocky planets cannot form there. Now, mathematical simulations show that Earthlike, solid planets such Read Full Article Here For…

Computational model simulates bacterial behavior

Applied mathematicians and environmental biotechnologists have developed a new computational model that effectively simulates the mechanical behavior of biofilms. Their model may lead to new strategies for studying a range of issues from blood clots to waste treatment systems. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Computers & Math News
