OpenAI’s robotic hand doesn’t need humans to teach it human behaviors

Gripping something with your hand is one of the first things you learn to do as an infant, but it's far from a simple task, and only gets more complex and variable as you grow up. This complexity makes it difficult for machines to teach themselves to do, but researchers at Elon Musk and Sam Altman-… [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made


But the software that lets that robot do that task so well is likely to be hand-written and extremely specific to the application.
Yet for a human, picking up an apple isn’t so different from pickup up a cup.
(The hand itself is a Shadow Dexterous Hand, which is also more complex than most robotic hands.)
Just like a human, Dactyl can grip and manipulate just about anything you put in its hand, within reason of course.
This flexibility is called generalization, and it’s important for robots that must interact with the real world.

Opinion… * Man-Made


The researchers at #OpenAI (backed by Elon Musk and Sam Altman) have created a system that not only holds and manipulates objects much like a human does, but developed these behaviors all on its own. #AI #Trend
