Initiatives & Trends

Researchers from Disney Research have built a cordless one-legged hopping robot that can bounce up to 7 seconds/19 times without falling over. They employed a linear elastic actuator in parallel (LEAP), which placed a voice coil actuator (VCA) in parallel with compression springs, to act as the primary weight-bearing actuator for the one-legged hopping robot.

For our October 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with radar imaging. The section below covers patents granted recently for radar signal visualization, synthetic radar imaging, compressive imaging techniques, object detection and fusion, and radar based navigation.

Researchers from MIT have developed "Interactive Dynamic Video", a technology that allows the background to interact with Pokemon and virtual forces. It analyzes video clips to find vibration patterns at different frequencies, which represent distinct ways that an object can move.

This month's featured IEEE News source is IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter.

The August edition of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter is live and covers micogrids in China, microgrid development on a small island, and the Penghu smart grid demonstration project.

For our August 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with hardware and algorithmic issues of image registration. The section below covers patents granted recently for rigid and elastic image registration, patch matching, image alignment under low contrast or illumination, and specific devices constructed for the task.

Memory is one of the three key factors for cognitive dynamic systems. A paper titled A Comprehensive Study of the Past, Present, and Future of Data Deduplication, published in the Proceedings of the IEEE Sep. 2016, provides a comprehensive survey of the state of the art in data deduplication technologies for storage systems, covering key technologies, main applications, open problems, and future research directions.

Research in artificial intelligence (AI) has made great progress in recent years including Google's Go-playing AI AlphaGo beating world-class player Lee Se-dol in a 4-1 victory. While AI surpasses human intelligence in many tasks, the way it works is very different from the human brain. Dr. Dhruv Batra from Virginia Tech gave a presentation on whether humans and AI look at the same regions when answering visual questions, at Data Science Summit 2016, in San Francisco, CA.

The IEEE Maker Project competition has launched and will run through 17 September 2016. This year, Thomas Coughlin, IEEE Senior member and Chair of the IEEE Public Visibility Committee, will serve as the host of this competition and will be featured in an ongoing video series that will highlight cool projects and events on the contest website.
