Can a robot be programmed to learn like a human? Find out from ISIR researchers at the Palais de la Découverte in Paris.
Learning algorithms have made rapid progress in games (Go, chess) and text or image manipulation (recognition, synthesis). However, their application to robotics remains difficult, particularly when robots have to grasp objects in an unfamiliar environment. Researchers from the Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique present their work on robot learning inspired by human learning. Experimental demonstrations highlight the differences in the behaviour of the same robot, from behaviour programmed in detail to behaviour resulting from artificial intelligence algorithms enabling the robot to assimilate tasks for which it has not been programmed. The mechanisms of algorithms and artificial neural networks will be demystified in a visual and intuitive way using a graphical interface (AlphAI- Learning robots software).
“1 Researcher 1 Manip”
1C1M is a small part of the laboratory, a place where you can meet “science in the making”. Supported by experimental demonstrations, scientists present their research and their laboratory. The public can discover the questions researchers ask themselves and the means they use to answer them.
This activity is closely linked to the founding spirit of the Palais de la découverte. Jean Perrin, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1926, set himself the goal of “opening up the laboratories”, “making visitors witnesses to discovery” and, above all, “revealing scientific vocations”.
