Robots Take Lessons From Your Failures & Just Do It!

Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory at EPFL, in Lausanne, Switzerland has developed robots that can learn from your pathetic failed attempts and actually do it right. Yes, computers and robots have become smarter and it won't be too long when they'll start plotting against humans without our knowledge. At the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), in Shanghai, Daniel H. Grollman and Aude Billard from the lab presented a paper titled "Donut As I Do: Learning From Failed Demonstrations" which shows how robots can be made to understand what you were trying to do (from your failed attempts at something) and then guess the right behavior and then 'just do it'.

In their paper the researchers present the algorithms they developed which enable to robots to mathematically determine what you were trying to do in the failed attempts and then guess the right aim. Once they guess the aim, they teach themselves to do the task right and actually does it right in just few attempts. Researchers say that currently not using adaptive learning. It's only trying out different things until it archives goal. However, what Grollman and Billard have achieved has lot of potential for future development. We believe this is a huge step ahead in artificial intelligence.
