DARPA Developed a Tech Allowing Robots to Cook for You by Learning from YouTube Videos

DARPA Developed a Tech Allowing Robots to Cook for You by Learning from YouTube Videos

People are divided into two parts. The first one is extremely involved in Robotic field and Robotic innovations, whereas the next part is rather skeptic about robots innovations, in a nutshell they are not in that theme.
Of course thongs would be even easier for roboticists if their creators had the ability to learn from any instructional video they watch without further programming.
Apparently still we are far from being “Robot pros” or else teaching them complicated tasks using just a playlist of YouTube clips. The researchers of Maryland University are on their early stages to make it happen. The team’s research is funded by DARPA’s Mathematics of Sensing, Exploitation and Execution (MSEE) program, which aims to teach machines not only how to collect data, but also how to act on it.
Currently the researchers are developing the system allowing robots to learn from the series of “how-to” cooking videos on YouTube.
So during the tests robots will try to perform the tasks shown in the video with zero human input.
By the way, the system lets the robots to store and choose whatever they’ve learned from the previous videos and to build on the knowledge to become better at handing certain tools or performing this or that activity.
In addition DARPA believes that the robots soon will become a lot more advanced, capable and smart. Any way there should be some caution. We just hope that in near-real future they just don’t be sentient and colluding against us.
