Wearable electronics powered by flexible batteries
Stanford University researchers have developed an experimental device designed to provide a comfortable power source for technologies that bends and flexes with the human body.
Algorithm developed to train AI to avoid bad behaviors
A team led by researchers at Stanford and the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed an algorithm that could help robots, self-driving cars and other intelligent machines safeguard against undesirable outcomes like racial and gender bias.
Quantum technology seeks to control light with precision
Stanford University researchers have has built an integrated circuit to control the flow of light through a diamond chip, which could help create quantum processors that are faster than the fastest electronic computers today.
Sensors developed to detect physiological signals emanating from skin
Stanford engineers have developed a way to detect physiological signals with sensors that stick like band-aids onto the skin and transmit readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing, which could improve worker health and safety.
Material developed to improve insulation for mobile devices, computers
Stanford researchers have found that a few layers of atomically thin materials can provide the same insulation as a sheet of glass, which is 100 times thicker and will improve the compactness of cell phones and computers.
Electronic glove gives robots a sense of touch
Researchers have developed an electronic glove with sensors that mimic human skin, helping robotic hands achieve some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy. See video.
