- UT and Meta AI create digital humans that learn complex movementsResearchers at Meta’s Artificial Intelligence Research Lab (Facebook) in the US and at the University of Twente’s Neuromechanical Modelling and Engineering Lab in the Netherlands (led by Prof.dr.ir Massimo Sartori), have co-developed the open-source framework MyoSuite, which combines advanced musculoskeletal models with advanced artificial intelligence (AI). The AI-powered digital models in MyoSuite can learn to execute complex movements, and interactions with assistive robots, that would otherwise require long experimentations on real human subjects.
On Monday, May 23rd after 16:00 pm Meta will publish a blog announcing MyoSuite on their Tech@blog.Read more
- Huawei Wang received the 2021 4UT FAIR Data Fund to release a FAIR human movement datasetHuawei Wang received the 2021 4UT FAIR Data Fund to release a FAIR human movement dataset. Huawei Wang is a Postdoc researcher in the neuromechanical modelling and engineering lab. This funding will support him to make the collected human movement dataset FAIR. The dataset comprises information from six different types of sensors (Optical Motion Capture, Instrumented Treadmill, IMU Suit, Pressure Insoles, Electromyography Sensors, and Video Cameras; all synchronized) recording movement from 12 healthy young adults performing 13 daily activity trials. They will openly publish the raw and processed data, processing pipeline (software), open hardware, metadata files, and documentation.Read more
