BRETT: The Easily Teachable Robot

1/21/2018; 1 minutes

Robots today must be programmed by writing computer code, but imagine donning a VR headset and virtually guiding a robot through a task, like you would move the arms of a puppet, and then letting the robot take it from there. That's the vision of Pieter Abbeel, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, and his students, Peter Chen, Rocky Duan, Tianhao Zhang, who have launched a start-up, Embodied Intelligence, Inc., to use the latest techniques of deep reinforcement learning and artificial intelligence to make industrial robots easily teachable.
