Now AI can be used to recognize chimps in the wild

A new software, developed by scientists at the University of Oxford, will be able to recognize and track faces of individual chimpanzees in the wild. According to a new article published recently, the new artificial intelligence software will allow researchers and wildlife conservationists to significantly cut back on time and resources spent analyzing video footage.

Amputees might get smarter arms to hold things better

Scientists have successfully tested a new neuroprosthetic technology that combines robotic control with users’ voluntary control. This opens avenues in the new interdisciplinary field of shared control for neuroprosthetic technologies, which means the user can have more detailed use in their prosthetic limbs.

New method helps AI probe dark matter in the universe

Physicists and computer scientists have developed a new approach to the problem of dark matter and dark energy in the universe. Using machine learning tools, they programmed computers to teach themselves how to extract the relevant information from maps of the universe.
