Meet the Intelligent Vision System Robot: a robot from ITRI that can play chess, pour coffee, and learn new skills. The technology enables robots to interpret the visual world and learn from past experiences. ITRI’s robot is capable of distinguishing between different chess pieces and their locations. It moves pieces and avoids collisions.
With deep learning, the robot reacts to changing conditions and continues performing its tasks. Here is what the robot is expected to perform:
In the CES 2017 chess demonstration, the robot must evaluate the random moves of its human opponent and move its chess pieces according to its current abilities. It learns to play chess better by experience, similar to the way humans do. In the coffee-filling application, the robot continually improves its ability to fill coffee cups of various sizes at random locations within its range.
