Robots from NVIDIA will be watching us, to become even smarter
Now, in order to teach the robot to something new, often need to spend a lot of time and effort people on the learning process itself. However, NVIDIA offers significantly alter this approach. Their new system of deep machine learning will allow robots to learn on their own, just watching people.
The new system is based on interconnected neural networks. Some are responsible for the perception of others for planning, others for the management and processing of data, and so on. Thanks to the interconnection of different systems and combining them with control systems, motion recognition and objects, robots can be trained, just watching people. And to retrain for new tasks. According to NVIDIA Chief Stan Burchfield researcher,
"In a production environment, robots are perfectly repeating the same actions, but they are not able to adapt to the changes taking place around and are not trained, performing only the specified program. And in order to teach the robot to perform a new task, you have to invite an expert to reprogram the robot, which is not cheap. "
The development of the company NVIDIA aims to ensure that even non-specialists can teach the robot new tricks.
"We are now at the stage when using new technologies, we can create, in effect, unlimited amounts of pre-labeled data, and then develop and test algorithms. All this will help enable us to create a system that will adapt to any conditions. "
The corporation even released a video demonstration of the technology. It moves the person objects, and, "looking at him", the robot learns to do the same. If you believe the words of NVIDIA employees, technology is only "at the beginning." Therefore, on the one hand, it is interesting, but on the other - a little scary, something else robots will be able to learn from us in the future.
