Robot Learning: The Future of Robotics?

I recently read an article on robotics by a fellow intern. He cited an example of a flying bird robot developed by Festo Industries’ Bionic Learning Network. It is an autonomous ornithopter. While this is certainly an impressive achievement, because they have deciphered the flight of birds, something even more interesting has been going on in the field of machine learning. Developing robots is easy. What is difficult is making them learn how to do things on their own and improve their performance independently. That is what machine learning is all about.Let’s take a look at an example here: Assume that you are designing the logic for a quadcopter. If you design the logic using the traditional approach, you will simply have to make sure that the quadcopter obeys the…
