The robot learned how to play jenga. Why is it important Source:

is — to verify this, just look at least one of the rollers Boston Dynamics. But robots are taught not only to walk, lift weights, and fight: scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of technology, for example, has created a robot that knows how to play jenga. At the same time before a goal was to win — it should examine the units yourself.

The design consists of a robotic arm, sensor, and push-pull manipulator to the car was easier to gently pull the blocks. According to MIT, the robot knows about the location of the blocks and what they look like, but he tries to understand how the elements interact with each other.

As a result, the robot has analyzed that some of the blocks lies free others, so they can get it, without using a large amount of power. Then the robot understands how to change the design, and the method of touch, trial and error trying to get the next block. According to the researchers, the machine is able to fully understand the game, treating 200-300 "bricks".

This approach differs significantly from that used by other scientists who are pre-writing software for a successful task execution by a robot. In this case, the machine has the right to be wrong; besides, if she makes the right moves, her "reward". Of course, while the robot can't beat human jenga (as, for example, or Starcraft), but in the future all this goes.

If you allow the robot to learn the process, it will be much easier to simulate a situation with high accuracy. In addition, the control of small objects — one of the highest priorities of the use of such machines. As I think that soon robots will clean our teeth? Share your opinion .
