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...
