New robot can be controlled with thoughts

New robot can be controlled with thoughts

A team of MIT researchers claimed to have developed a robot that can change its actions almost instantly by takings its cues from human brain waves.

Daniela Rus, the director of the Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT explained that the new robot uses new algorithms that enable it to monitor brain activity for specific signals.

Rus added that the new technology could lead to a future where humans will be able to control robots easily by merely observing their actions.

MIT researchers report an important step toward practical quantum computers

Quantum computers are mainly imaginary devices that may do some calculations quite faster in comparison to conventional computers. The bits of classical computation can represent 0 or 1, and quantum computers have quantum bits, or qubits, which can at times represent 0 and 1 at once.
