Retailers and logistics operators are bringing robotics and artificial intelligence to distribution centers to move online orders at a faster pace in a tight labor market.
“SenseAct is an important new step in machine learning research on robots, enabling consistent and reproducible results on physical robots for the first time. It will establish a standard that may greatly accelerate machine learning research on physical robots, pushing reinforcement learning to a new level of performance just as large standard data sets have for supervised learning,” said Richard S. Sutton, professor of Computing Science and AITF Chair in Reinforcement Learning and Artificial Intelligence at University of Alberta.
Called the "Wizard of Oz" technique or pseudo-AI, the practice of silently using humans to make up for the shortcomings of AI algorithms sheds light on some of the deepest challenges that the artificial intelligence industry faces.
Our Head of AI Research, James Bergstra, PhD weighs in on the topic.
How can artificial intelligence in robots help workers focus on more creative things? JJ Ramberg interviews George Babu at the Collision Conference to learn how our robot helps with this.
