Pentagon Wants AI to Predict Events Before They Occur

What if by leveraging today's artificial intelligence to predict events several days in advance, countries like the United States could simply avoid warfare in the first place? It sounds like the ultimate form of deterrence, a strategy that would save everyone all sorts of trouble and it's the type of visionary thinking that is driving U.S. military...

Understanding the Coronavirus Is Like Reading a Sentence

Since the beginning of 2020, we've heard an awful lot about RNA. First, an RNA coronavirus created a global pandemic and brought the world to a halt. Scientists were quick to sequence the novel coronavirus's genetic code, revealing it to be a single strand of RNA that is folded and twisted inside the virus's lipid envelope. Then, RNA vaccines set the...

Boots Full of Nickels Help Mini Cheetah Land on its Feet

As quadrupedal robots learn to do more and more dynamic tasks, they're likely to spend more and more time not on their feet. Not falling over, necessarily (although that's inevitable of course, because they're legged robots after all)—but just being in flight in one way or another. The most risky of flight phases would be a fall from a substantial height,...

How to Stake Electronic Components Using Adhesives

This is a sponsored article brought to you by Master Bond. Sensitive electronic components and other parts that may be damaged due to vibration, shock, or handling can often benefit from adhesive staking. Staking provides additional mechanical reinforcement to these delicate pieces. Different components require different methods of staking....

Lockheed Martin’s CTO Steven Walker on Future Defense Technologies

There are many ways people can serve their country without joining the military. One is to develop technologies that can be used to defend their nation against adversaries. That's what Steve Walker has been doing his entire career. The IEEE senior member worked for more than 30 years in the U.S. civil service, first for the Air Force Research Laboratory...

Event-Based Camera Chips Are Here, What’s Next?

This month, Sony starts shipping its first high-resolution event-based camera chips. Ordinary cameras capture complete scenes at regular intervals even though most of the pixels in those frames don't change from one scene to another. The pixels in event-based cameras—a technology inspired by animal vision systems—only react if they detect a change in...
