Patent talk: Apple concept features earbuds that can be worn interchangeably

Much of the tech news coverage is focusing on the “interchangeable” aspect of the patent concept. 9to5Mac’s Alex Allegro said interchangeable earbuds “equipped with ‘at least one’ biometric sensor, which could detect left/right ear placement and accordingly adjust audio.”

Seeing and avoiding the ‘blind spot’ in atomic force measurements

Researchers have discovered a ‘blind spot’ in atomic force microscopy—a powerful tool capable of measuring the force between two atoms, imaging the structure of individual cells and the motion of biomolecules.

Computer vision in the dark using recurrent CNNs

Over the past few years, classical convolutional neural networks (cCNNs) have led to remarkable advances in computer vision. Many of these algorithms can now categorize objects in good quality images with high accuracy.

Researchers devise 3-D printer that can make energetic materials safer, more environmentally friendly

Purdue University researchers have devised a method of 3-D printing that can produce energetic materials with fine geometric features faster and with less expense than traditional methods, while also being safer and more environmentally friendly.

Researchers develop ‘soft’ valves to make entirely soft robots

In recent years, an entirely new class of robot—inspired by natural forms and built using soft, flexible elastomers—has taken the field by storm, with designs capable of gripping objects, walking, and even jumping. Yet despite those innovations, so-called “soft” robots still carried some “hard” parts.

AlphaZero AI system able to teach itself how to play games, play at highest levels

A team of researchers with the DeepMind group and University College, both in the U.K., has developed an AI system capable of teaching itself how to play and master three difficult board games.

The privacy risks of compiling mobility data

Microsoft said Thursday it was adopting a set of principles for deployment of facial recognition technology, calling on industry rivals to follow suit and for new laws to avert a dystopian future.

Google launches AI-driven audio news feed

Google said Thursday it was launching a radio-style, on-demand audio news feed available on smart speakers, personalized with the help of artificial intelligence. The technology giant said it had partnerships with more than a dozen news organizations to deliver an audio feed in the same manner as its smartphone news feed.

Team creates 3-D-printed glucose biosensors

A 3-D-printed glucose biosensor for use in wearable monitors has been created by Washington State University researchers. The work could lead to improved glucose monitors for millions of people who suffer from diabetes.
