Building a smarter robot with deep learning and new algorithms

One of the benefits of linking robotics with various aspects of IT such as the cloud and big data is that it can result in more functional robots that have access to more information and collaborative abilities than before. The Robotics team at Carnegie Mellon trained one robot, named HERB, to pull apart an Oreo for humans. (Image: CNET) That might seem like a frightening prospect, based on science fiction accounts of robots gone bad, but from a business and societal standpoint, it can lead to a number of benefits. Efforts are underway to make robots smarter, including deep learning and new algorithms, which allow robots to learn things faster. By adding more intelligence, machines can move beyond the ability to perform repetitive tasks. “Deep learning and big data are…
