String Art - from the Hand of a Robot
String Art - from the Hand of a Robot
String art is a technique for the creation of visual artwork where images emerge from a set of strings that are spanned between pins. Now, at TU Wien (Vienna) this work can be delegated to a robot - an example of a complex task that digital fabrication can solve. The basic idea of string art is simple: hooks distributed on a frame are connected by strings back and forth until they fuse to a perceptible image.

Model improves prediction of mortality risk in ICU patients
By training on patients grouped by health status, neural network can better estimate if patients will die in the hospital. In intensive care units, where patients come in with a wide range of health conditions, triaging relies heavily on clinical judgment. ICU staff run numerous physiological tests, such as bloodwork and checking vital signs, to determine if patients are at immediate risk of dying if not treated aggressively.
