Biomimetic Photodetector 'Sees' in Color

August 26, 2014 12:55 pm | by Rice University | Comments

Researchers have created a CMOS-compatible, biomimetic color photodetector that directly responds to red, green and blue light in much the same way the human eye does. The new device uses an aluminum grating that can be added to silicon photodetectors with the silicon microchip industry's mainstay technology...

'Robo Brain' Will Teach Robots Everything from the Internet

August 26, 2014 12:34 pm | by Cornell University | Comments

Robo Brain – a large-scale computational system that learns from publicly available Internet resources – is currently downloading and processing about 1 billion images, 120,000 YouTube videos, and 100 million how-to documents and appliance manuals. The information is being translated and stored in a robot-friendly format...
