Research Moves Closer to Brain-Machine Interface Autonomy

A University of Houston engineer is reporting in eNeuro that a brain-computer interface, a form of artificial intelligence, can sense when its user is expecting a reward by examining the interactions between single-neuron activities and the information flowing to these neurons, called the local field potential.

EVDodge: Embodied AI for High-Speed Dodging on a quadrotor using event cameras

Project Page: http://prg.cs.umd.edu/EVDodge arXiv Pre-print: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.02919 After re-imagining the navigation stack of a micro air vehicle as a series of hierarchical competences, we develop a purposive artificial intelligence based formulation for the problem of general navigation. We call this AI framework "Embodied AI'" - AI design based on the knowledge of the agent's hardware limitations and timing/computation constraints.

Giant floating islands that turn atmospheric CO2 into fuel could prevent climate change, scientists say

Millions of floating islands that convert atmospheric carbon dioxide to fuel could help protect our climate from the burning of fossil fuels, scientists have said. These proposed islands would be clustered together to create large-scale facilities that-if enough were built-could eventually offset the total global emissions from fossil fuels.
