Most land birds, including sparrows and wood thrushes, migrate at night to avoid predators and conserve energy […]

  • Jellyfish-inspired soft robots can outswim their natural counterparts
    on July 1, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    Engineering researchers have developed soft robots inspired by jellyfish that can outswim their real-life counterparts. More practically, the new jellyfish-bots highlight a technique that uses pre-stressed polymers to make soft robots more powerful.

  • Coordinating complex behaviors between hundreds of robots
    on July 1, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    Researchers propose a new approach to finding an optimal solution for controlling large numbers of robots collaboratively completing a set of complex linear temporal logic commands called STyLuS*, for large-Scale optimal Temporal Logic Synthesis, that can solve problems massively larger than what […]

  • Computational model decodes speech by predicting it
    on June 26, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    UNIGE scientists developed a neuro-computer model which helps explain how the brain identifies syllables in natural speech. The model uses the equivalent of neuronal oscillations produced by brain activity to process the continuous sound flow of connected speech. The model functions according to a […]
