VeriDream: reinforcing the learning of robots through dreams

Artificial intelligence helps robots to perform tasks by themselves. They can learn and train while disconnected, through dream-like simulations. However, deviations from reality and the infinite choices available in real life limit the effectiveness of these methods. A problem that the VeriDream project, supported by the European Innovation Council,…
