Google and MIT come together to improve robot manipulation using computer vision transference
Google and MIT researchers have come together to formulate a study called “LEARNING TO SEE BEFORE LEARNING TO ACT: VISUAL PRETRAINING FOR MANIPULATION”, where they are collaborating to see if pretraining a robot in visual computer manipulation can improve its grasping ability. They believe that affordance based manipulation, or the ability to interact with an object in its environment, will be able to train robots in less than 10 minutes to hold an object. This affordance enables learning complex vision-based manipulation skills, inc...
Deep-Learning Startup MetaMind Wants To Build Programs That Think Like Humans
We’ve already seen a glimpse of the future of artificial intelligence in self-driving cars. Now imagine that for some damaged property-related matter you are exchanging emails with AI representing an insurance company. That’s the coup d'œil of applying deep-learning to solve a range of business problems. Palo Alto, Calif. based startup called MetaMind promises to help enterprises use deep-learning for image, text, and data analysis tasks. This approach will enable computers to recognize faces in an image or the text of the speech wit...
