New MIT algorithm helps robots rapidly pick up and sort items

Though we’re not yet at the point where robots can take fully take over warehouse jobs, technology is rapidly developing toward that end goal. One big issue surrounding robots in these jobs is their ability to sort items. Unlike boxes, which are neatly stacked and easy to grasp, small unpackaged items introduce randomness into the mix, requiring a robot to … Continue reading

MIT-IBM developed a faster way to train video recognition AI

Machine learning has given computers the ability to do things like identify faces and read medical scans. But when it's tasked with interpreting videos and real-world events, the models that make machine learning possible become large and cumbersome....

AI can gauge the risk of dying from heart conditions

AI's ability to predict threats to your health could soon include deadly heart conditions. Researchers at MIT's CSAIL have developed a machine learning system, RiskCardio, that can estimate the risk of death due to cardiovascular issues that block o...

Undersea sensor is powered by sound waves from the surface

The system has already been successfully used to transmit data from within a water tank

For continuously gathering information on ocean conditions, one thing that's been proposed is a network of sensors that would transmit data from the sea floor. Changing their batteries, however, could be quite challenging. That's where a new MIT system is designed to come in.
