How robots are learning new skills from humans
As robots begin to dominate our everyday lives, Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) researchers have taught a robot how to learn a new pick-and-place task with the help of human demonstrations.
The human demonstrations help to “reprogramme” the robot in random poses which it has never encountered earlier. The new technology allows the robot to quickly learn a new skill in 10 to 15 minutes.
According to the researchers, the new technology uses a “neural network” to reconstruct 3D images, the system quickly grasps what the neural network has learned and then executes it.
The new technology is set to be a gamechanger in e-commerce warehouse storage where robots have to perform a variety of tasks like storing mugs upside down and in various places.
