Researchers have been able to successfully teach robots how to cook based on watching YouTube videos, according to the University of Maryland and the NICTA Australian research center. There is a greater effort to advance artificial intelligence with deep learning, and robots were engendered commands for robots to perform based on cooking videos.




Researchers have shared their success in a recently published study, and will provide further details during the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence later this month.


"We believe this preliminary integrated system raises hope towards a fully intelligent robot for manipulation tasks that can automatically enrich its own knowledge resource by 'watching' recordings from the World Wide Web," according to researchers.
