NVIDIA AI Techniques Teach Robots Through Human Movement

NVIDIA is showing off how it is using its deep learning to teach robots how to complete tasks by simply "showing" the robot how it is done. This will certainly be a boon in industry where repetitive tasks need to be accomplished. Once you get done teaching the robot how to do the job, it is preprogrammed to show you how to pick up your pink slip, and make your way to the nearest homeless shelter.

In the video above, the human operator shows a pair of stacks of cubes to the robot. The system then infers an appropriate program and correctly places the cubes in the correct order. Because it takes the current state of the world into account during execution, the system is able to recover from mistakes in real time.
