Movement learning in robotics

2 people and a robot

Today robotics is more and more inspired by the behaviour of the human being. If we want robots to interact with the real world, we have to look toward the smartest creature, us. Thanks to different researches in science, now we can try to reproduce, although with limitations, all the ability of the human in a robot. The results of these researches can be seen in developmental robotics that merge robotics, biology and neuroscience.

Researchers create new model to evaluate AI-generated navigation instructions

A burgeoning subfield of AI focuses on leveraging models to improve the performance of robots that follow instructions given by people. These models generate directions (e.g., “Walk up the stairs and enter the first room on the left”) that ostensibly improve robots’ navigation performance in simulated and real-world environments. But a study coauthored by Google researchers finds that the models perform only slightly better than template-based techniques that don’t rely on AI.
