The new project is focused on building robots capable of useful, everyday tasks, like sorting recycling. Alphabet’s X group, the R&D lab formerly known as Google X, introduced the Everyday Robot Project on Thursday. The project comes out of Alphabet’s string of robotics acquisitions several years ago, which had been put on hold. The new […]



Using imitation and reinforcement learning to tackle long-horizon robotic tasks

November 22nd, 2019 at 12:41 pm » Comments Off

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a widely used machine-learning technique that entails training AI agents or robots using a system of reward and punishment. So far, researchers in the field of robotics have primarily applied RL techniques in tasks that are completed over relatively short periods of time, such as moving forward or grasping objects. A […]
