Artificial intelligence system recognizes people by their walk

Researchers at the University of Manchester, in collaboration with scientists at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, have developed a biometric artificial intelligence system that can recognize a person from his steps and ways of walking: In particular, the system can recognize the person simply from the moment he presses a special “tile” of pressure on Διαβάστε Περισσότερα …

The first bio-electric capsule detects stomach bleeding

Researchers at MIT University in the US have created the first capsule-sensor, containing genetically modified bacteria, which can diagnose bleeding in the stomach. It is actually a bacteria “chip” that combines sensors from living microorganisms with electronics of very low energy consumption. The bacterial-electronic sensor transforms the “signal” (i.e. the biological response) of the bacteria Διαβάστε Περισσότερα …
