Facebook AI researchers today revealed details about their robot training efforts, including an initiative to teach a six-legged hexapod robot to walk.
“Our goal is to reduce the number of interactions the robot needs to learn to walk, so it takes only hours instead of days or weeks,” researchers wrote in a . “The techniques we are researching, which include as well as model-based reinforcement learning, are designed to be generalized to work with a variety of different robots and environments.”
“They could also help improve sample efficiency of reinforcement learning for other applications beyond robotics, such as A/B testing or task scheduling,” the post said.
Teaching robotic systems how to move is a long-seated challenge that has tackled and Google’s DeepMind took on in
