Microsoft выпустил новую версию приложения Seeing AI, которое с помощью технологии компьютерного зрения позволит слепым и слабовидящим людям «просматривать» фотографии на смартфоне или компьютере. Об этом пишет Engadget.

Для запуска приложения пользователь должен коснуться изображения на экране. Система компьютерного зрения распознает детали изображения и озвучит их через динамик или наушники.

С 13 марта Seeing AI доступно на устройствах с операционной системой iOS, в том числе и на iPad. Приложение бесплатно и доступно для скачивания в App Store и Google Play.

The Israeli company has developed an autonomous drone that can pick fruit or be used for thinning and pruning in apple and orange orchards.
According to an article published by CTech, Tevel Aerobotics Technologies last year completed a working prototype of a drone. The drone will hit the market by 2020.
Company drones can also determine the type, defects and quality of fruits.
Although they only work during the day, the company told Ctech that they are working to provide night vision opportunities for the drone.

A Japanese and American company has entered into a partnership agreement with NASA to try out a new UAV on a solar battery. Perhaps in the near future the army of such drones will deliver even to remote corners of the Earth!
Huge UAV for high-altitude flights: carrying Wi-Fi
In the modern world there is a race, the main goal of which is to create a fleet of flying UAVs. Wi-Fi signal and permanently solve the problem with internet connection. However, Google and Facebook have already abandoned this venture. NASA decided to implement this idea.
AeroEnvironment was named Hawk 30, that is, Hawk-30. This is a relatively massive unit, equipped with 10 engines. His tests are conducted by the Armstrong Research Center, one of the divisions of NASA.
The Hawk differs from its predecessors not only in design, but also in potential. In 2001, the previous model, Helios, reached a height of over 28 kilometers - it was a real machine for the development of solar-powered aircraft. The competition was developed in Facebook under the name “Aquila”, which was comparable to that of the Boeing 737, but in 2017 the project was quickly turned off. Airbus is not only an opportunity, but also all new industry giants. Now, AeroEnvironment had to lay out about 800,000 NASA for overseeing and providing overground support for the upcoming tests scheduled for the end of June of this year.

Apple Augmented Reality Glasses are due in 2020, media reports referring to analyst Ming Ji Kuo’s statement.
They will be positioned as an accessory for the iPhone. The device should partially take on the role of an additional display, the smartphone will be able to transmit data to it. Points will be light and thin.
Mass production should begin in the fourth quarter of 2019. It is expected that with the help of AR-glasses and Apple Car Apple's capitalization will reach $ 2 trillion in the stock market.

Over the past few years we have been able to see a lot of interesting developments in the nano-robotics segment - in particular, in the field of medical robots, whose task is to deliver medicines directly to the affected area of the body. However, today, robotics specialists from the University of Pennsylvania presented their new development, which is a new concept of a nano-robot with a small body and two pairs of legs, with which it can actually move within the body, thus successfully bypassing the blood barrier. There are some controversial points.
The way to create such nano-robots involves the use of a special proprietary technique of sequential nanofabrication, in which separate layers of glass and polymeric materials are created, which play the role of a material basis for creating various parts of the robot body. For example, its main body is made of rectangular polymeric glass, and a pair of limbs are a bundle of silicone fiber mixed with polymer plastic.
The limbs themselves, by the way, consist of two layers of platinum and titanium, which can be easily replaced by graphene or its derivative agent. With its well-designed and multifunctional design, the robot has the ability to quickly and freely move within the body and successfully bypass the traditional blood barrier - which can be especially useful if you need to deliver this or that medicine to the brain as soon as possible.
It is worth noting that the presented version of the robot has some untested points - for example, experts still argue as to whether it is worth creating reinforcements for a longer cycle of operation of the limbs of the robot, or not. It remains to wait for new news regarding the development and hope that after successful final checks and tests, the model will indeed be applied in modern medical robotics. Moreover, with its excellent potential for continuous improvement.
