Follow the harrowing operation to rescue 12 boys stranded in a flooded cave in Thailand.
The long-sought molecule could one day power high-energy electronics.
An AI chip designed to mimic certain aspects of the human brain has given a bicycle an unprecedented level of autonomy.
Researchers have built a prosthesis that enabled a man who lost his hand to text, pluck grapes from their stems, and stuff a pillow into its case.
Combining two insect-control techniques, researchers largely prevented reproduction in a mosquito species known to carry Zika, dengue, and yellow fever.
The new material could have applications in robotics and medicine.
Researchers are developing robots that use AI to read emotions and social cues, making them better at interacting with humans. Are they a solution to labor shortages in fields like health care and education, a threat to human workers, or both?
The breakthrough suggests that bots can navigate complex games involving multiple stakeholders and hidden information—situations that better approximate the real world than two-player board games.
