A team of scientists spent six months co-designing robots with informal caregivers for people with dementia, such as family members. They found that caregivers wanted the robots to support positive moments shared by caregivers and their loved ones; and lessen caregivers’ emotional burdens.
University of California San Diego computer scientists have completed the first comprehensive evaluation of Intel’s new Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory Modules (Optane NVDIMMs). They found that Optane DIMMs can make key storage applications 17 times faster.
Hadi Esmaeilzadeh, a professor of computer science at the University of California San Diego, is building the computer architecture that will enable the artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies of the future. He is expanding his work by collaborating with colleagues at the Center fo
You may have seen a kid play with a feather, or you may have played with one yourself: Running a hand along a feather’s barbs and watching as the feather unzips and zips, seeming to miraculously pull itself back together. That “magical” zipping mechanism could provide a model for new adhesives…
Seven researchers at the University of California San Diego have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the largest general science organization in the United States and publisher of the journal Science.
Experts in the field of healthcare robotics from industry and academia came together to tackle during the 2018 Contextual Robotics Institute Forum held Nov. 8 at the University of California San Diego.
Security researchers at UC San Diego and Stanford have discovered four new ways to expose Internet users’ browsing histories. These techniques could be used by hackers to learn which websites users have visited as they surf the web.
A team of U.S. computer scientists is receiving a $10 million grant from the National Science Foundation to make machine learning more secure. The grant establishes the Center for Trustworthy Machine Learning at a consortium of seven universities, including the University of California San Diego. Researchers…
Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have developed a new technology that can encode, transform and edit video faster--several orders of magnitude faster--than the current state of the art.
