Quantum biomimetics consists of reproducing in quantum systems certain properties exclusive to living organisms. Researchers at University of the Basque Country have imitated natural selection, learning and memory in a new study. The mechanisms developed could give quantum computation a boost and facilitate the learning process in machines. [14] A Chinese team of physicists have trained a quantum computer to recognise handwritten characters, the first demonstration of quantum artificial intelligence . Physicists have long claimed that quantum computers have the potential to dramatically outperform the most powerful conventional processors. The secret sauce at work here is the strange quantum phenomenon of superposition, where a quantum object can exist in two states at the same time. [13] One of biologys biggest mysteries-how a sliced up flatworm can regenerate into new organisms-has been solved independently by a computer. The discovery marks the first time that a computer has come up with ...

The catalytic activity of highvalent iron-oxo active species of heme enzymes is known to be dependent on the nature of the axial ligand trans to the iron-oxo group. In a similar fashion, experimental studies on iron-oxo porphyrin biomimetic systems have shown a significant axial ligand effect on ethylbenzene hydroxylation, with an axial acetonitrile ligand leading to phenyl hydroxylation products and an axial chloride anion giving predominantly benzyl hydroxylation products. To elucidate the fundamental factors that distinguish this regioselectivity reversal in iron-oxo porphyrin catalysis, we have performed a series of density functional theory calculations on the hydroxylation of ethylbenzene by [FeIV=O(Por+)L] (Por = porphyrin; L = NCCH3 or Cl-), which affords 1-phenylethanol and p-ethylphenol products. The calculations confirm the experimentally determined product distributions. Furthermore, a detailed analysis of the electronic differences between the two oxidants shows that their reversed ...

Researchers from the University of Amsterdams Van t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences (HIMS) have developed a range of synthetic biomimetic compounds to replace the relatively expensive natural NADH and NADPH coenzymes in enzymatic conversions of industrial relevance. They show that some of the compounds even outperform their natural counterparts. The research has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).

Nacre exhibits similar mechanical properties however with rather simpler structure. Nacre shows a brick and mortar llike structure with thick mineral layer (0.2∼0.9-μm) of closely packed aragonite structures and thin organic matrix (∼20-nm).[27] While thin films and micrometer sized samples that mimic these structures are already produced, successful production of bulk biomimetic structural materials is yet to be realized. However, numerous processing techniques have been proposed for producing nacre like materials.[25]. Biomorphic mineralization is a technique that produces materials with morphologies and structures resembling those of natural living organisms by using bio-structures as templates for mineralization. Compared to other methods of material production, biomorphic mineralization is facile, environmentally benign and economic.[28]. Freeze casting (Ice templating), an inexpensive method to mimic natural layered structures was employed by researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National ...

Recent theoretical and technological advances have spurred a broad interest to develop practical multirobot systems [1]-[5]. For mobile robots, navigation skill is one of their fundamental capabilities. Different navigation strategies are appropriate for different contexts. Different sensor types and sensing modules are used depending on the application scenarios. However, a problem of common interests and practical significance is how to perform tasks with less information and simpler sensors, such as using binary sensors, or using bearing-only or range-only sensors. This problem has attracted much attention in the multirobot community because an advantage of cooperation of teams of robots is that simple agents are able to perform complex tasks through mutual cooperation.. Bearing-only-based navigation is an approach to simplify the sensing system and is very useful in some cases. For example, for mobile robots equipped with single omnidirectional camera, or radar and sonar operating in passive ...

For the second experiment, the aim was to ascertain how efficient in terms of number of training samples the learning process was, with multi-modal representations, in comparison with each individual modality. The reasoning is that it may be considered "unfair" to compare a vision-only system which used 60 training samples against a visuo-tactile system that used 120 (60 visual and 60 touch). Instead, the total number of training samples was set to a fixed value and the accuracy for uni-modal and multi-modal was computed. For example, when the number of training samples was set to 40, tactile-only and visual-only recognition was performed using 40 training samples, but multi-modal recognition was performed using 20 visual and 20 tactile, or 35 visual and 5 tactile, or any other combination. This is different to all previous work encountered, where, when it comes to sensor fusion, all data from both modalities are typically used (such as in the first experiment).. At test time, a single image was ...

Creation of extremely strong yet ultra-light materials can be achieved by capitalizing on the hi-e-r-a--r-chical design of 3-dimensional nano-architectures. Such structural meta-materials exhibit superior thermo-mechanical pro---per--ties at ex-tre-me-ly low mass densities (lighter than aerogels), making these solid foams ideal for many scientific and tech-no-lo-gi-cal applications. The dominant de-for-mation mechanisms in such "meta-materials", where individual constituent size (nanometers to microns) is compa-rable to the characteristic microstructural length scale of the constituent solid, are essentially un-known. To harness the lucrative properties of 3-dimensional hierarchical nanostructures, it is critical to assess mechanical properties at each relevant scale while capturing the over-all structural complexity ...

Attach:JasonGrasping1.jpeg Δ We are building a compliant underactuated robotic hand for humanoid diving tasks, from exploring coral to investigating archaeological sights. The robot is intended not only to replace humans in dangerous diving tasks, but also to provide easy access to previously untouched delicate environments. The hands therefore need to be capable of both strength grasping tasks (for handling tools) as well as gentle precision tasks (for extracting delicate samples or artifacts). Contributions from this design project include analysis for the adaptive spring transmission of a highly underactuated three-finger hand, as well as implementing gaiting as a way to achieve multiple grasp types with a very simple and robust fixed-base four-finger configuration. SimGrasp was also developed and utilized to simulate various hand design parameters essential to the application. These are the first flexure-based tendon-driven hands designed specifically for these underwater tasks, and balance ...

Heating [Fe,sub,2,/sub,(CO),sub,6,/sub,(μ-edt)] (edt = 1,2-ethanedithiolate) with 2,2′-bipyridine (2,2′-bipy) or 1,10-phenanthroline (1,10-phen) in MeCN in the presence of Me,sub,3,/sub,NO leads to the formation of [Fe,sub,2,/sub,(CO),sub,4,/sub,(κ,sup,2,/sup,-2,2′-bipy)(μ-edt)] (1-edt) and [Fe,sub,2,/sub,(CO),sub,4,/sub,(κ,sup,2,/sup,-1,10-phen)(μ-edt)] (2-edt), respectively, in moderate yields. In the solid state the diamine resides in dibasal sites, while both dibasal and apical-basal isomers are present in solution. Both stereoisomers protonate readily upon addition of strong acids.
