This Shimon Robot Write and Play its Own Music by Using Deep Learning

By Jason Maderer | Jun 14, 2017 @ 14:46 | A marimba-playing Shimon robot with four arms and eight sticks is writing and playing its own compositions in a lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The pieces are generated using artificial intelligence and deep learning. Researchers fed the robot nearly 5,000 complete songs — from […]

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

By Jason Maderer | May 16, 2017 @ 06:12 | Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created a team of free-flying Swarming robots that obeys the two rules of the air: don’t collide or undercut each other. They’ve also built autonomous blimps that recognize hand gestures and detect faces. In the first, five swarm quadcopters zip […]

Robotic Cleaning Technique Could Automate Neuroscience Research

Robotic Cleaning Technique Could Automate Neuroscience Research

Nov 2, 2016 @ 22:26 | By John Toon (404-894-6986) (jtoon@gatech.edu) |  For scientists listening in on the faint whispers of brain neurons, a first-ever robotic technique for cleaning the tiny devices that record the signals could facilitate a new level of automation in neuroscience research. That could accelerate the gathering of information used to […]

MuddyBot: Robot Helps Study How First Land Animals Moved 360 Million Years Ago

Jul 8, 2016 @ 15:16 | Georgia Tech | When early terrestrial animals began moving about on mud and sand 360 million years ago, the powerful tails they used as fish may have been more important than scientists previously realized. That’s one conclusion from a new study of African mudskipper fish and a robot, MuddyBot modeled […]
