This week it was announced that MIT professor and CSAIL principal investigator Tomas Lozano-Perez has been awarded the 2021 IEEE Robotics and Automation Award for his “foundational contributions to robot motion planning and visionary leadership in the field.”
A new MIT study finds “health knowledge graphs,” which show relationships between symptoms and diseases and are intended to help with clinical diagnosis, can fall short for certain conditions and patient populations. The results also suggest ways to boost their performance.
Developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, a team of robots can self-assemble to form different structures with applications in inspection, disaster response, and manufacturing
