Today, the New York Times featured research being conducted at the UC Berkeley Laboratory for Automation Science and Engineering (AUTOLAB) led by IEOR Professor Ken Goldberg. AUTOLAB is breaking new ground in the area of robot grasping by helping robots teach themselves to reliably grasp irregularly-shaped objects that they have never encountered before. The robot uses a neural network to analyze a cloud database of seven million 3D objects in order to teach itself the best way to pick up new objects automatically.
