As robots proliferate, having and stay out of the way of foot traffic will become increasingly important. MIT researchers have now developed a robot capable of politely wandering amongst pedestrians.
Video streaming has barely had any countermeasures for buffering but, it seems that MIT CSAIL's 'Pensieve' system might be able to fix that. It applies neural networks to adjust the stream's quality.
Researchers from MIT and Columbia University have developed InstantCAD, a new plug-in that integrates with existing CAD programs and enables designers to edit their models in real-time.
Researchers have launched a new system which aims to give users recipes for a meal of a photo they upload. The researchers trained the AI and managed to achieve a 65% success rate during tests.
Water leakages can cause or worsen water shortages and damage nearby structures. It is a widespread problem, difficult and expensive to detect, but researchers from MIT want to tackle this problem.
Researchers at MIT have created a new implementation for how the CPU cache interacts with the processor and data, by replacing the archaic fixed cache found in all modern processors.
Researchers at MIT have developed a modular self-driving system that can be used on everything from cars, to golf carts, to scooters - promising a future of increased mobility for everyone.
Microsoft has announced five new education courses in partnership with MIT, the University of Michigan and the University of Queensland. The programs are free of cost and are set to run in 2017.
MIT researchers, in collaboration with Microsoft Research, are developing a wearable temporary skin tattoo that can be used to interact with devices, and output "soft" displays on the skin as well.
A research group at MIT has created an algorithm that can extract information about objects and materials from video. Using it, mixed or augmented reality may soon become much more realistic.
MIT has developed a new type of processor architecture that solves many of the inefficiencies that come with multi-core CPUs directly through hardware. It makes multi-core chips 18 times faster.
Researchers have banded together and developed a system that allows cars to know how wet a road is just by listening to the sound of the tires. This could save thousands of lives in the near future.
Samsung, in partnership with MIT, have figured out a way to make your battery last 'indefinetly' by replacing the liquid electrolyte by a solid, reducing costs and doing away with battery explosions.
In the lead up to the anniversary of Aaron Swartz's death, hackers have defaced MIT websites, which is seen as revenge for Swartz's arrest by MIT police for hacking that lead to his suicide.
A team of researchers at MIT have designed a prototype 36-core processor using an all-new architecture utilizing a 'mini-internet' design where cores are connected directly to each other.
Thanks to lasers, fiber optics and a lot of brain power NASA has managed to get broadband internet on the moon with speeds averaging 19 Mbps - higher than the UK national average according to Ofcom.
A recent project from MIT uses Microsoft's Kinect technology to help create inFORM, which allows remote users to manipulate real world objects via an interface that changes with a person's movements.
'Hacktivist' group Anonymous has hacked the MIT site, leaving a very personal tribute to Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide this week, and calling for action to honour his memory.
50 years ago this week, MIT researchers created the first ever computer game, SpaceWar! To celebrate the anniversary, a group of MIT students recreated the game at a special event.
One of the co-founders of the popular web site Reddit has been charged with stealing millions of documents from computer archives at MIT and at JSTOR. The Boston Globe web site reports that 24 year...
Have you ever wondered what technology might one day replace the Computer Mouse? If so, researchers at MIT may have your answer: Nothing! According to Wired.com, "In a magic trick that only geeks can pull...
No it doesn't. But the bigger it is, the more you can potentially display on it. News posted on the h+magazine website explores the idea of wearing the internet. The very clever students at...
