A four-megabit nvCIM macro for edge AI devices

Edge AI devices, systems that combine artificial intelligence (AI) and edge computing techniques, are becoming an essential part of the rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. These devices include smart speakers, ...

Demystifying machine-learning systems using natural language

Neural networks are sometimes called black boxes because, despite the fact that they can outperform humans on certain tasks, even the researchers who design them often don't understand how or why they work so well. But if ...

Machine intelligence builds soft machines

Soft machines—a subcategory of robotics that uses deformable materials instead of rigid links—are an emerging technology commonly used in wearable robotics and biomimetics (e.g., prosthetic limbs). Soft robots offer remarkable ...

Imaging through random diffusers instantly without a computer

Imaging through scattering and diffusive media has been a challenge for many decades, with numerous solutions reported so far. In principle, images distorted by random diffusers (such as frosted glass) can be recovered using ...

Insects help robots gain better grip

A whole generation of gripping robots has been developed using a design concept originally known from fish fins. An international research team from Biomechanics, with participation from Kiel University (CAU), led by the ...

Engineers propose greener recycling for medical PPE waste

Under the intensity of a prolonged pandemic, the world finds an ever-growing and seemingly never-ending waste stream of used surgical masks, plastic face shields, and medical gloves and gowns. Cornell engineers now offer ...

Hitting net-zero without stopping flying

One of the largest producers of carbon emissions is air travel, yet many view flying as a necessary enabler of tourism and international business. One promising way for consumers to take responsibility for their carbon emissions ...

Eco-friendly micro-supercapacitors using fallen leaves

A KAIST research team has developed a graphene-inorganic-hybrid micro-supercapacitor made of leaves using femtosecond direct laser writing lithography. The advancement of wearable electronic devices is synonymous with innovations ...

Small change could enable big improvement in batteries

An electric car with a long range, a cell phone that you only need to charge once a week. Not only are we using more and more batteries, but we also want them to be compact, able to store a lot of energy and to charge quickly. ...

Samsung reports robust profit based on chip strength

Samsung Electronics Co. said Thursday its operating profit for the last quarter rose by more than 53% from the same period last year as it continued to thrive during the pandemic while relying on its dual strength in parts ...
