Artificial Intelligence: Singapore Researchers Develop Robots That Feel Pain And Heal Themselves Using AI
The NTU scientists innovated memtransistors, which are “brain-like” electronic devices that can process information and are capable of memory functions. They embedded these memtransistors, which function as artificial pain receptors and synapses, into AI-enabled sensor nodes in the robot. These nodes can process and respond to “pain” caused by impact from a physical force. In case of a minor injury, the robot can also repair its damage without human assistance.
