Get up and go bots getting closer, study says

University of California San Diego

Robotics researchers at the University of California San Diego have for the first time used a commercial 3D printer to embed complex sensors inside robotic limbs and grippers. But they found that materials commercially available for 3D printing still need to be improved before the robots can be fully functional.

Hate spoilers? This AI tool spots them for you

University of California San Diego

Did social media spoil the Avengers’ Endgame movie for you? Or maybe one of the Game of Thrones books? A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego is working to make sure that doesn’t happen again. They have developed an AI-based system that can flag spoilers in online reviews of books and TV shows.

Using Machine Learning to Create More Capable Capacitors

University of California San Diego

Capacitors, given their high energy output and recharging speed, could play a major role in powering the machines of the future, from electric cars to cell phones. However, the biggest hurdle for capacitors as energy storage devices is that they store much less energy than a similar-sized battery. Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology are tackling that problem by using supercomputers and machine learning techniques to ultimately find ways to build more capable capacitors.
