Kurzweil : "How to lab-test your brain with an iPhone, an iPad… | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

A new study shows that an iOS (iPhone, iPad) app yields results on a dichotic listening test that are as reliable as laboratory tests. Two years ago, psychology researcher Josef Bless was listening to music on his phone when he had an idea : “In dichotic listening, each ear is presented with a different syllable at the same time (one to the left and one to the right ear) and the listener has to say which syllable seems clearest.

 

The test indicates which side of the brain is most active during language processing” Bless explains […]. The app makes it possible to gather large volumes of data easily and inexpensively. I think we will see more and morepsychological tests coming to smartphones” he adds…

L'Atelier : "Un gant simplifie la reconnaissance d'objets dans des environnements complexes

L'Atelier : "Un gant simplifie la reconnaissance d'objets dans des environnements complexes | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it


Comment faire pour retrouver plus rapidement un objet parmi une masse de produits ? Il suffit d'enfiler un gant, rétorquent des chercheurs de l'Institute for Information Technology de l'université d'Helsinki. Ils ont mis au point un système qui identifie la cible au sein d'un environnement 3D et alerte l'individu qui le porte par une vibration…

Kurzweil : "A supercomputer to map the cosmos | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

 

 

A new petascale supercomputer built to study the universe is one of the fastest calculating machines in the world, and certainly the fastest of its kind. The supercomputer is part of ALMA, a new radio telescope that is claimed to be “largest ground-based astronomical project in existence”. The ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) radio telescope is a collection of 66 high-precision antennas…

TOUCH : Le monde au bout des doigts

Une exposition en deux parties à voir au Mudac et au Musée de la main. Le toucher, magique, bénéfique, déroutant ou irritant, ne laisse pas indifférent. Véritable éloge de ce sens longtemps considéré comme primaire, l'exposition plonge le visiteur dans les formes multiples de notre rapport sensoriel et sensuel au monde…

Kurweil : Discover the Ubi, the ALWAYS-on voice-activated computer

Kurweil : Discover the Ubi, the ALWAYS-on voice-activated computer | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

The Ubi is an always-on voice-activated computer ready to help. Just plug it in, talk to it and it’ll help you connect with your world. Ubi uses voice recognition technology to listen for plain language commands, responding to requests in a synthesized voice or offering simple status updates using the multi-colored LED indicator lights.

It’s been designed to synchronize with other Ubis in the home or office, and users should be able to move from room to room and interact with devices in different locations as though they were one unit…
