A team of MIT researchers has developed a new way to clear pollutants from water, even when present in extremely low concentrations. When it comes to removing very dilute concentrations of pollutants from water, existing separation methods tend to be energy- and chemical-intensive. Now, a new method developed at MIT could provide a selective alternative … Continue reading “MIT develops new way to clear Pollutants from Water”
Most robots are programmed using one of two methods: One method is, learning from demonstration, in which they watch a task being done and then replicate it. The other method is, via motion-planning techniques such as optimization or sampling, which require a programmer to explicitly specify a task’s goals and constraints. Both methods have drawbacks. … Continue reading “MIT’s C-LEARN allows Robots to learn Tasks easily from other Robots”
