Robotic Motion Planning in Real-Time

Jun 20, 2016 @ 18:42 |  Duke University engineers and computer scientists develop a new computer processor specially designed for robotic motion planning Once they’ve mastered the skills of toddlerhood, humans are pretty good at what roboticists call “motion planning”—reaching around obstacles to precisely pick up a soda in a crowded fridge, or slipping their […]

Researchers are Using Stories to Teach Human Values to Robots

Researchers are Using Stories to Teach Human Values to Robots

Feb 17, 2016 @ 17:22 | The rapid pace of artificial intelligence (AI) has raised fears about whether robots could act unethically or soon choose to harm humans. Some are calling for bans on robotics research; others are calling for more research to understand how AI might be constrained. But how can robots learn ethical […]
