Getting Submarines Talking to Airplanes

Video   Aug 24, 2018 | Original Video from MIT

 

Until recently, there has never been a way to send communication signals between air and water. If an underwater submarine passes beneath a plane in the sky, there's been no way for them to communicate with each other without having the submarine surface, jeopardizing its location to an adversary. Fadel Adib and Francesco Tonolini of MIT Media Lab, have developed a way to connect these seemingly dissonant mediums through something called Translational Acoustic-RF communication, or TARF. Using sound waves from underwater, and Radar from the air, messages can be transmitted by creating faint ripples on the surface of the water.

Modern machine learning is great for helping scientists sort through huge data sets. But it’s less useful for things that require inference or reasoning – both vital to the scientific process. One group of scientists are now trying to fix this problem with a new kind of machine learning. This new approach aims to find the underlying algorithmic models that interact and generate data, to help scientists uncover the dynamics of cause and effect.
