Method developed to let AI learn, retain information
Purdue University researchers have developed a way that could let computer chips rewire themselves to take in new data like the brain does, helping artificial intelligence (AI) to keep learning over time.
How sea slugs can create better artificial intelligence systems
Researchers have discovered quantum material for artificial intelligence (AI) systems could mimic basic forms of learning found in the sea slug, which could help create better hardware.
Computer developed to act more in tune with nature
Purdue University engineers are building a probabilistic computer designed to act more like quantum computers rather than traditional computers.
Turbulence model developed to help aircraft capable of handling extreme scenarios
Purdue University researchers have developed a modeling approach that simulates the entire process of a vortex collision at a reduced computational time, which could help aircraft responds appropriately.
Applying machine learning to making mechanical parts
An open-source annotated database of more than 58,000 3D mechanical parts has been designed to help researchers apply machine learning to those parts in actual machines.
Mobile docking system developed for underwater robots
A mobile docking system for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) has been developed to allow vehicles to perform longer tasks without the need for human intervention.
Algorithms developed to detect COVID-19 from smartwatch data
Purdue University researchers have begun a study that would help determine if biometric smartwatch data could be used to detect signs of COVID-19 early early in asymptomatic users.
Enhanced lidar developed for autonomous vehicles
Researchers have built a way to make lidar achieve higher-resolution detection of nearby fast-moving objects through mechanical control and modulation of light on a silicon chip, which could maker autonomous vehicles smarter and more self-aware.
Hardware developed for improved artificial intelligence
Purdue University engineers have created hardware that can learn skills using a type of AI currently running on software platforms.
Laser treatment designed to kill bacteria on metal surfaces
Purdue engineers have created a laser treatment that kills bacteria on metal surfaces by giving it a different texture, which could be used for medical device manufacturing processes.
