Lateral thinking to help household robots manipulate objects

Students at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are using new algorithms and lateral thinking to enable household robots to work around their physical shortcomings.  Unlike an industrial setting, where positioning make objects easier to grasp, household robots would need to be able to manipulate objects of any shape in any location. The MIT research is...

MIT research finds that training robots is much like training people

In a breakthrough experiment, the Interactive Robotics Group at MIT have discovered that swapping jobs with someone else on your team to help everyone understand the work better, is just as effective with robots as it is for humans. Known as “cross training,” the tactic allows humans and robots to work together more smoothly. In heavy industry, such as car manufacturing, robots perform...
