OpenAI creates Dactyl robot hand with "unprecedented" dexterity - NBWW | Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe
Open AI — a non-profit started by Elon Musk — has found a way to programme a robot hand so that it can nimbly manipulate an object using human-like movements it has taught itself. Rima Sabina Aouf Open AI — a non-profit started by Elon Musk — has found a way to programme a robot hand so that it can nimbly manipulate an object using human-like movements it has taught itself.“We’ve trained a human-like robot hand to manipulate physical objects with unprecedented dexterity,” said OpenAI of its Dactyl system, which is shown in a video twisting a block into 50 different requested orientations. Dactyl works by training the robot hand in a simulation and then transferring the knowledge gained there to the real world. Simulated learning is becoming widespread in AI, withDactyl representing a milestone in terms of how well it’s been able to execute the task its trained for in reality. The result is a robot hand that can complete many tasks, efficiently, using a range of movements, without them having to be individually programmed by a human. “We’re working on teaching robots to solve a wide variety of tasks, without having to programme them for any one specific task,” said Alex Ray, a machine learning engineer at OpenAI. “The system runs on a human-like robot hand and we used reinforcement learning and simulation to teach the robot how to solve tasks in the real world.” Read the full story HERE >>>> Source: Designboom OpenAI creates Dactyl robot hand with “unprecedented” dexterity
