AI allows drones to fly at high speeds in unknown environments

Researchers at the University of Zürich developed a new AI technique that allows drones to fly autonomously at high speeds through complicated and unknown environments. The drones were able to accomplish their high-speed flights using only onboard sensing and computation. Researchers believe their approach could allow drones to be more useful during an emergency or on construction sites.

Researchers aim to help protect US Navy divers using AI systems

Researchers aim to help protect US Navy divers using AI systems

A group of researchers, including scientists from the University of Illinois Chicago, were given $725,000 from the US Office of Naval Research to develop an AI system to help protect divers from waterborne bacteria, parasites, and other harmful pathogens. The challenge for divers is that they are sent into all kinds of water as part of their service in the U.S. Navy. There are limited resources to understand any health risks associated with the waters they are operating within in real-time. The divers perform all manner of duties within the Navy, from fleet maintenance and repairs to search and rescue and rescue missions.

Facebook AI researchers create a robot able to adapt to rapidly changing conditions

Work is being performed all around the world to give robots more human-like abilities. One of the key human-like abilities that researchers want robots to have is the ability to react in real-time to environmental changes. Humans, for instance, can remain stable and upright when the surface they are walking on suddenly and unexpectedly changes.
