US ‘develops’ AI-powered facial recognition tech for military robot drones

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI

The drones are to be tasked with expeditionary roles, including special operations, to “open the opportunity for real-time autonomous response by the robot.”

The United States Air Force has reportedly developed AI-powered facial recognition techechnolgy (FTR) for autonomous drones.

The drones will be used by special operations personnel for missions overseas and for gathering intelligence and other operations, according to a contract between the Department of Defense (DoD) and Seattle-based company RealNetworks.

Future-ready: Australian army tests mind-controlled combat AI robodogs

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

The brain signals successfully directed the robodogs toward a number of locations that the human controller picked “telepathically” by imagining them.

The Australian military is reportedly testing a unique artificial intelligence (AI) “brain robotic interface” to control “robodogs” synced with troopers’ minds.

Putin not backing down on Ukraine, insists West is at fault

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, military, nuclear weapons, treaties


Putin also said that Russia would suspend its participation in a treaty aimed at keeping a lid on nuclear weapons expansion. The so-called New START Treaty was signed by Russia and the U.S. in 2010. It caps the number of long-range nuclear warheads they can deploy and limits the use of missiles that can carry atomic weapons.

Putin said Tuesday in a major address that Russia was not fully withdrawing from the treaty yet. He said Russia must stand ready to resume nuclear weapons tests if the US does so.

Surpassing All Existing Designs — Researchers Develop High-Voltage Microbattery With Exceptional Energy and Power Density

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, chemistry, military

A persistent technological challenge has been the difficulty in scaling down the electrochemical performance of large-format batteries to smaller, microscale power sources, hindering their ability to power microdevices, microrobots, and implantable medical devices. However, researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have overcome this challenge by developing a high-voltage microbattery (9 V) with exceptional energy and power density, unparalleled by any existing battery design.

Material Science and Engineering Professor Paul Braun (Grainger Distinguished Chair in Engineering, Materials Research Laboratory Director), Dr. Sungbong Kim (Postdoc, MatSE, current assistant professor at Korea Military Academy, co-first author), and Arghya Patra (Graduate Student, MatSE, MRL, co-first author) recently published a paper detailing their findings in Cell Reports.

<em>Cell Reports</em> is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that published research papers that report new biological insight across a broad range of disciplines within the life sciences. Established in 2012, it is the first open access journal published by Cell Press, an imprint of Elsevier.
