Summary (IA Generated)

A “bat-sense” algorithm that generates images from sounds could be used to catch burglars and monitor patients without using CCTV, the technique’s inventors say.

The machine-learning algorithm developed at Glasgow University uses reflected echoes to produce 3D pictures of the surrounding environment.

The researchers say smartphones and laptops running the algorithm could detect intruders and monitor care home patients.

Firstly, it requires data from just a single input — the microphone or the antenna — to create three-dimensional images.

Credit: University of GlasgowThe researchers trained the algorithm on echo data from a microphone and image data from a camera.

Eventually, it learned to associate specific delays in the echoes with images.

The mammals send out sound waves that bounce back when they hit an object.

The researchers believe their algorithmic recreation of this natural ability could greatly reduce the cost of 3D imaging.
