It doesn't know what it doesn't know. Researchers have now developed an AI that learns by asking people questions. Staff too old? Robots step in As the population gets older, automation increases. That's what a new study by MIT and Boston University shows. First microsurgery with robot Pioneering micro-surgery: At the University Hospital in Zurich, a patient was given the finest connections between lymph vessels and veins - by robot. Robot evokes ghost illusions in Parkinson's patients Researchers have succeeded in evoking tangible but invisible presences in Parkinson's patients with the help of a robot. Crash-proof drone Researchers in Zurich have developed a drone that does not crash – even if one of its rotors fails. University of Zurich teaches drones tricks Thanks to a navigation algorithm, drones are learning to autonomously perform acrobatic maneuvers. Using simulations, the autonomous aircraft are trained to become faster, more agile, and more efficient. Researchers at the University of Zurich develop extremely agile drones Researchers at the University of Zurich (UZH) have developed a system that enables flying robots to be very agile. A new type of camera allows autonomous drones to respond much faster than if they were controlled by a human pilot. German researchers develop skin for robots The aim of this is to enable robots to perceive their surroundings more effectively and even to balance on one leg. For the very first time, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany report that they have fully equipped a human-sized robot with an artificial skin. Will robots soon help care for the elderly? There is already a chronic shortage of qualified staff in the nursing sector, and demographic change will only exacerbate this development. Consequently, a research team at the German Aerospace Center is developing robots for use in nursing homes. Robot dispenses hugs on demand Need a hug and no one familiar to wrap your arms around? A doctoral student at the "Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems" is developing a hugging robot that could once alleviate loneliness.
