Research teaches machines to decipher birdsong
Research teaches machines to decipher birdsong
Innovative research looking at the timing and sequence of bird calls could provide new insight into the social interaction that goes on between birds. It will also help teach machines to differentiate between man-made and natural sounds and to understand the world around them. The work is being led by Dr Dan Stowell, a research fellow in machine listening at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).

How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
Quantum computing will soon enter a revolutionary new age of quantum supremacy, in which quantum computers are expected to outperform the computational power of the classical ones, unlocking new applications and technologies such as designing new drugs and processing big data. Before such a grand goal is achieved, a question remains as to how we can calibrate existing quantum computers and how can we verify their computing outcomes?

Robots help people improve at physical tasks in new study
Researchers at Imperial College London have programmed human learning behaviour into robots to help humans complete physical tasks. The robots predicted the movements of their human partners to help improve their performance on computer-related physical tasks. The researchers believe their findings could be used in the future to help patients rehabilitate from stroke – for example, using robots to deliver physiotherapy.

New drone dives like a bird and leaps like a flying fish
Engineers have developed a prototype drone that dives like a gannet and launches like a flying fish, to collect water samples. Gannets (left) are the largest seabirds in the north Atlantic and hunt fish by diving from height into the sea at up to 60 miles per hour. Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of the water and into the sky, where their wing-like fins help them to glide over considerable distances.
