Source: Tech Crunch Robots are great at doing things they’ve been shown how to do, but when presented with a novel problem, such as an unfamiliar shape that needs to be gripped, they tend to choke. AI is helping there in the form of systems like Dex-Net, which uses deep learning to let a robotic arm improvise an effective grip for objects it’s never seen before.
The diffusion of lightweight robots is widening the opportunities of their use in manufacturing cells. In particular, the hardware adaptability to different operative conditions enables new challenging scenarios like, for example, those of co-presence of
