Creating 3-D-printed “motion sculptures” from 2-D videos

Understanding of movement is fundamental for every single living species, regardless of whether it's making sense of the best angle for throwing a ball...
MIT computer scientists have developed a system that learns to identify objects within an image, based on a spoken description of the image

Machine-learning system tackles speech and object recognition

MIT computer scientists have built up a system that figures out how to distinguish protests inside an image, in view of a spoken description...

Helping computers fill in the gaps between video frames

MIT scientists have come up with a new module that helps artificial intelligence systems called convolutional neural networks, or CNN's, to fill in the gaps...
MIT neuroscientists have devised a way to measure dopamine in the brain for more than a year, using microfabricated sensors that are so tiny they don’t lead to the formation of scar tissue.

New sensors track dopamine in the brain for more than a year

Dopamine is an organic chemical of the catecholamine and phenethylamine families that plays several important roles in the brain and body. Dopamine deficiency is...
MIT researchers have developed an algorithm that traces intersections in sketches without error. This could save digital artists significant time and frustration when vectorizing an image for animation, marketing logos, and other applications

Smoothing out sketches’ rough edges

MIT scientists have created a tool that can help artists to create digital characters, logos, and other graphics more quickly and easily. The tool involves a...
PhD student Lucas Manuelli worked with lead author Pete Florence to develop a system that uses advanced computer vision to enable a Kuka robot to pick up virtually any object.

Robots can now pick up any object after inspecting it

For decades, robots in controlled situations like sequential construction systems have possessed the capacity to get a similar protest again and again. All the...
Software tool could help architects design efficient buildings

Software tool can help architects to design efficient buildings

Architects are increasingly interested in reducing the environmental impact of the buildings they design. Tools like energy modeling assist in predicting and reducing energy...
