Elon Musk-backed OpenAI is teaching robots how to learn just like humans do


From The Verge:

OpenAI, the San Francisco-based nonprofit research lab backed by Elon Musk, today announced a research milestone on its robotics work. The achievement is a new algorithm that allows a human being to communicate a task to an AI by performing it first in virtual reality. The method is based on what’s known as one-time imitation learning, a technique OpenAI developed to allow software guiding a robot to mimic a physical action using just a single example.
