'Soft tactile logic' tech distributes decision-making throughout stretchable material

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain Inspired by octopuses, researchers have developed a structure that senses, computes and responds without any centralized processing—creating a device that is not quite a robot and not quite a computer, but has characteristics of both. The new technology holds promise for use in a variety of applications, from soft robotics […]

Automating artificial intelligence for medical decision-making

[ad_1] A new MIT-developed model automates a critical step in using AI for medical decision making, where experts usually identify important features in massive patient datasets by hand. The model was able to automatically identify voicing patterns of people with vocal cord nodules (shown here) and, in turn, use those features to predict which people […]
