UC San Diego engineers have developed a low cost, low power technology to help robots accurately map their way indoors, even in poor lighting and without recognizable landmarks or features. The technology uses WiFi signals, instead of light, to help the robot "see" where it’s going.
Voyager, the experimental artificial intelligence compute resource newly installed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, is ready for use. Sanctioned for production by the NSF, the high-performance/high-efficiency supercomputer located at UC San Diego is moving into its operational testbed phase.
People who are highly responsive to food lost more weight and kept it off using a new weight loss program that targets internal hunger cues and the ability to resist food, reports University of California San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.
