Dr. Jordina Rincon gives us in this document details about the structure of the brain’s neural development, in relation to space activity, and its transformation into information that can be stored, consulted and analyzed by multidisciplinary research teams.

  • New tools to minimize risks in shared, augmented-reality environments
    on August 20, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    Security researchers have created ShareAR, a toolkit that lets developers build collaborative and interactive features into AR apps without sacrificing their users' privacy and security. […]

  • New tool makes web browsing easier for the visually impaired
    on August 19, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Researchers have developed a new voice assistant that allows people with visual impairments to get web content as quickly and as effortlessly as possible from smart speakers and similar devices. […]

  • Robotic cane shown to improve stability in walking
    on August 6, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    By adding electronics and computation technology to a simple cane that has been around since ancient times, researchers have transformed it into a 21st century robotic device that can provide light-touch assistance in walking to the aged and others with impaired mobility. The autonomous robot 'walks' alongside a person to provide light-touch support, much as one might lightly touch a companion's arm or sleeve to maintain balance while walking. […]

  • Lessons of conventional imaging let scientists see around corners
    on August 5, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Scientists, drawing on the lessons of classical optics, have shown that it is possible to image complex hidden scenes using a projected 'virtual camera' to see around barriers. […]

  • Virtual reality to solve minor personal problems
    on July 30, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    A new study shows that conversation with oneself embodied as Dr. Sigmund Freud works better to improve people's mood, compared to just talking about your problems in a virtual conversation with pre-scripted comments. Researchers claimed that the method could be used by clinicians to help people dealing with minor personal problems. […]

  • Computing: Stretch-sensing glove captures interactive hand poses accurately
    on July 23, 2019 at 4:18 pm

    Capturing interactive hand poses in real time and with realistic results is a well-examined problem in computing, particularly human-centered computing and motion capture technology. A global team of computer scientists have further advanced this area of research by developing a user-friendly, stretch-sensing data glove to capture real-time, interactive hand poses with much more precision.
