Researchers have shown that a group of small autonomous, self-learning robots can adapt easily to changing circumstances. They connected the simple robots in a line, after which each individual robot taught itself to move forward as quickly as possible.
Experts working at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and physics-based simulation share how computer simulation could accelerate the development of "smart robots" which "might interact with humans"
Thanks to developments in 3D bioprinting, the UT researchers could create a miniature brain model representing the delicate tissue around the tumor, including the macrophages.
