What Robots Can Teach Us About Being Human

Edsurge

At a recent EmTech Next conference on the future of work at the MIT Media Lab, I was amazed by how roboticist after roboticist kept describing just how difficult it is to teach a robot how to grasp an object and simply adjust its grip. Each scientist touted the new technologies they were building, but each also tempered their projections for the work ahead because of huge constraints like a robot’s inability to grasp. How did we train the algorithm?
