Ultra-light gloves let users "touch" virtual objects
Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra-light glove - weighing less than 8 grams per finger- that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement.

Explainable AI: What Happens Inside the Black Box
Carnegie Mellon University Professor Leman Akoglu specializes in anomaly detection models. The Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy faculty member is an expert on machine learning and data mining and uses that knowledge to explain how algorithms make decisions. A successful anomaly detection model will comb through transactions on those reports and flag items that seem out of place so they can be investigated.

Model helps robots navigate more like humans do
Model helps robots navigate more like humans do
In simulations, robots move through new environments by exploring, observing, and drawing from learned experiences. When moving through a crowd to reach some end goal, humans can usually navigate the space safely without thinking too much. They can learn from the behavior of others and note any obstacles to avoid.

Scientists ’virtually unravel’ burnt 16th century scroll
Scientists are on the look-out for damaged and unreadable ancient scrolls as brand new techniques have revealed the hidden text inside a severely burnt 16th century sample. The new development, the latest in a long line of advancements in the field in recent years, has shown how ‘virtual unravelling' can be achieved using a more autonomous approach and with scrolls that contain multiple pages.

Berkeley Lab to Push Quantum Information Frontiers With New Programs in Computing, Physics, Materials, and Chemistry
Berkeley Lab to Push Quantum Information Frontiers With New Programs in Computing, Physics, Materials, and Chemistry
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) this week announced support from the Department of Energy that significantly expands the Lab's research efforts in quantum information science, an area of research that harnesses the phenomenon of quantum coherence, in which two or more particles are so tightly entangled that a change to one simultaneously affects the other.

Berkeley Lab to Build an Advanced Quantum Computing Testbed
Berkeley Lab to Build an Advanced Quantum Computing Testbed
By Linda Vu The U.S. Department of Energy announced today that Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will receive $30 million over five years to build and operate an Advanced Quantum Testbed (AQT). Researchers will use the testbed to explore superconducting quantum processors and evaluate how these emerging quantum devices can be utilized to advance scientific research.

After the Big One: Understanding aftershock risk
Cranes dismantle buildings damaged by the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. (Photo credit: iStock) Geophysicist Gregory Beroza discusses the culprits behind destructive aftershocks and why scientists are harnessing artificial intelligence to gain new insights into earthquake risks. In early September 2018, a powerful earthquake on the island of Hokkaido in northern Japan triggered landslides, toppled buildings, cut power,  halted industry , killed more than 40 people and injured hundreds.

Reducing false positives in credit card fraud detection
Reducing false positives in credit card fraud detection
Model extracts granular behavioral patterns from transaction data to more accurately flag suspicious activity. Have you ever used your credit card at a new store or location only to have it declined? Has a sale ever been blocked because you charged a higher amount than usual? Consumers' credit cards are declined surprisingly often in legitimate transactions.

Mathematicians calculate the safest way home
A mobile app that guides pedestrians along the safest instead of quickest route to their destination is being developed by researchers at Cardiff University. Maths and computer science experts have devised a way of scoring the safety of any given area using sophisticated mathematical algorithms, which they believe could easily be implemented into a navigation mobile app to help reduce road traffic casualties.

Weather forecasting sheds light on where and when birds will fly
Using a combination of AI and weather forecasting can help scientists to predict the movements of millions of birds and support their conservation goals, according to new Oxford University research. Conducted in collaboration with Cornell University, the study published , reports that scientists can now reliably predict these waves of bird migration across the United States, up to seven days in advance.

Helping computers fill in the gaps between video frames
Helping computers fill in the gaps between video frames
Machine learning system efficiently recognizes activities by observing how objects change in only a few key frames. If we see an early frame of stacked cans, a middle frame with a finger at the stack's base, and a late frame showing the cans toppled over, we can guess that the finger knocked down the cans.

ANU algorithms define bot influence in 2016 US Election
New algorithms developed at the Australian National University (ANU) have found bots on Twitter were around two-and-a-half times more influential than humans during the first US Presidential debate in 2016. The researchers from the ANU Research School of Computer Science and School of Sociology also discovered there were far fewer bots than previously thought, but they had a disproportionate level of influence relative to their number.

Beyond Deep Fakes: Transforming Video Content Into Another Video’s Style, Automatically
Carnegie Mellon University researchers have created a method that automatically transforms the content of one video into the style of another. For instance, Barack Obama's style can be transformed into Donald Trump. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have devised a way to automatically transform the content of one video into the style of another, making it possible to transfer the facial expressions of comedian John Oliver to those of a cartoon character, or to make a daffodil bloom in much the same way as a hibiscus would.

Data science aims to find next El Niño
The El Niño/La Niña pattern in the Pacific Ocean is notorious for its long-distance effects on weather as far away as Africa and the Midwestern United States. But climate experts also know of several other such patterns, known as "teleconnections," and believe that there are many more to be discovered.

Smoothing out sketches’ rough edges
MIT-developed tool improves automated image vectorization, saving digital artists time and effort. Artists may soon have at their disposal a new MIT-developed tool that could help them create digital characters, logos, and other graphics more quickly and easily.  Many digital artists rely on image vectorization, a technique that converts a pixel-based image into an image comprising groupings of clearly defined shapes.
