The lead author of the study and technology developer, Dr. Garrett Warnell, explained that with the new AI training program, robots can be trained much faster, adapting to circumstances and adjusting to current tasks. In addition, he noted that this work will be an important step in the creation of fully autonomous devices capable of independently taking decisions and performing a number of complex tasks, not only in laboratories, but also in the field.
Now robots learn for a long time, interacting with objects by trial and error. Only after a series of incorrect sequences of actions they begin to arrive more or less correctly, but during training the robot, for example, can completely break down, falling off a rock or drowning. The new method and people's help will speed up training and help avoid fatal errors.
