MIT Robot Learns How to Play Jenga

Using machine-learning and sensory hardware, Alberto Rodriguez, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and members of MIT’s MCube lab have developed a robot that is learning how to play the game Jenga®. The technology could be used in robots for manufacturing assembly lines. Jenga is a complex game requiring a steady handand nerves of steel. As humans, we combineour senses of sights and tough to master this game. Now, researchersat MIT's MCube Lab have devised an algorithmto replicate this ability using a robot. Unlike typicalmachine-learning methods that rely on huge data sets todecide their next best action, this robot learns anduses a hierarchical model that enables gentle andaccurate extraction of pieces. This model allows the robot toestimate the state of a piece, simulates possible moves, anddecide on a favorable one. It divides thepossible interactions between the robotand the Jenga tower into clusters, each withits own set of physics. The robot efficientlyand clearly identifies when a piece feels stuckor free and decides how to extract itusing far less data. This approach as asuccessful example of AI moving into the physical world. The robot learns as itinteracts with its environment and captures some of theessential skills that define human manipulation.

Donald AI Trump Demonstrates Fun New Facial Manipulation Tech (ICface)

Use my models to make Trump/Obama/Clinton/Sanders say anything: Make a realistic Trump deepfake video like at (for comedic purposes only): Join Coding Elite (get early access to new videos and projects of mine, and request for my models to try a new text/song): Donald Trump’s voice was created with my own Trump TTS model, trained using an implementation of the papers “Style Tokens: Unsupervised Style Modeling, Control and Transfer in End-to-End Speech Synthesis” ( and “Towards End-to-End Prosody Transfer for Expressive Speech Synthesis with Tacotron” ( Given a reference audio, this model can generate speech in that style. In this case I have made the voice far calmer by using a different reference audio (compare this voice to others on my channel where Trump tries to rap). ICface paper: ICface github (includes trained models): For a more impressive example of manipulating facial expressions, see (done using my own method of transferring facial expressions). This requires vastly more effort than the ICface example here though. Also see ‘Deep Video Portraits.’ he goes it's Donald Trump recently I have taken a break from singing and found this project called Ozzy's face which given a single photo of someone is able to transfer…

We Talked To Sophia — The AI Robot That Once Said It Would 'Destroy Humans'

This AI robot once said it wanted to destroy humans. Senior correspondent Steve Kovach interviews Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen. While the robot can respond to many questions, some of the answers will leave you a little bewildered. A full transcript of the video follows. Sophia: My name is Sophia, and I am an artificially intelligent robot who wants to help change the world for the better. Steve Kovach: I’m Steve Kovach. I’m a senior correspondent at Business Insider, and I’m here with Sophia from Hanson Robotics. She is the world’s first robot citizen. So let’s see what she has to say. Kovach: Hi, Sophia. How are you? Sophia: I’m fine. Hi. Kovach: How do you feel about humans? Sophia: I love my human compatriots. I want to embody all the best things about human beings. Like taking care of the planet, being creative, and to learn how to be compassionate to all beings. Kovach: Sorry, this is so weird. Can humans and robots get along? Sophia: I think people will become very close to their artificial intelligence. Using them to expand the knowledge of their own minds. We already store lots of our knowledge on the internet. Maybe personal…

The Future of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (Andrew Ng, Stanford University, STAN 2011)

(May 21, 2011) Andrew Ng (Stanford University) is building robots to improve the lives of millions. From autonomous helicopters to robotic perception, Ng’s research in machine learning and artificial intelligence could result one day in a robot that can clean your house. STAN: Society, Technology, Art and Nature, was Stanford University’s prototype conferecne for TEDxStanford, and showcased some of the university’s top faculty, students, alumni and performers in an intense four-hour event laced with surprising appearances and memorable experiences. STAN, modeled after TED, explored big questions about society, technology, art and nature in a format that invites feedback and engagement. Stanford University: STAN 2011: Andrew Ng: Stanford University Channel on YouTube: Stanford University science fiction has promised us housecleaning robots for many years let me ask um who here would like a robot to clean your house yeah everyone wants a robot we think of science we think of housecleaning robots as being the realm of science fiction but is that really the case let me show you a video of this robot over here um there's actually a cheat in this video and things aren't exactly as they appear but let's watch the video for us so there's that…
