Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLI) is a common laboratory technique used in the life sciences for analyzing samples based on how long fluorescent light is generated after the sample is illuminated. Because the time frames involved are extremely short, the illumination has to be very quick and the detectors quite sensitive. Show More Summary
NASA announced today that MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is one of two university research groups nationwide that will receive a 6-foot, 290-pound humanoid robot to test and develop for future space missions. The MIT team is...

PETA asked the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science to remove the repulsive item from its auction—a rat skeleton posed with a guide about caring for animals in laboratories. The post This Auction Item Proves How Little Experimenters Care About Animals appeared first on PETA.
Andrew Barry, a PhD student at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, has built an autonomous drone capable of identifying and avoiding obstacles while flying at speeds up to 30mph. The drone uses stereo cameras and on-board computers to make all of its decisions using software Barry has released as open source. via […]
