【“懒人救星”:厨房机器人】

【“懒人救星”:厨房机器人】Nvidia开发了一款厨房机器人,它利用AI和机器学习来检测和跟踪物体,并记录厨房里门和抽屉的位置,还可以自己打开和关闭抽屉。机器人检测到周围物体后,形成的数据被用来产生“连续的感知反馈”,告诉机器人物体发生移动后所处的位置,使其能在非结构化环境中工作。开发人员表示,其目标是未来厨房机器人能够处理脏盘子,取回配料,帮助人们做饭。

The ultimate robot chef: The AI 'kitchen manipulator' learning to do everything from keeping track of dirty dishes to making meals

  • 'Kitchen manipulator' can track objects and open and close drawers or doors 
  • The robot uses AI and machine learning to be able to identify ingredients
  • The hope is that as the robot gets smarter, it can help cook meals in the kitchen 

Your next sous-chef in the kitchen may be a robot.

Semiconductor giant Nvidia has debuted its 'kitchen manipulator' robot that uses AI and machine learning to be able to identify ingredients.

The hope is that as the robot gets smarter, it can one day work alongside humans to help cook a meal.

Nvidia's kitchen robot is just one of several other robots in development at the firm's new lab in Seattle, which is meant to oversee all of its robotics projects.

The lab's focus is on 'cobots,' or robots that are trained to perform complex tasks and work next to humans.

Cobots could play a role in factories, hospitals, helping people with disabilities and, now in the house, or more specifically, the kitchen.

'Collaborative robotics, we might even call it the holy grail of robotics right now,' Nathan Ratliff, a distinguished research scientist at Nvidia, explained.

'It's one of the most challenging environments to get these robots to operate around people and do helpful helpful things in unstructured environments.'

The 'kitchen manipulator' uses AI and deep learning to detect and track objects, as well as take note of where doors and drawers are in the kitchen, Nvidia said.

It can even open and close drawer doors on its own.

'We want to develop robots that can naturally perform tasks alongside people,' said Dieter Fox, who leads the lab, in a statement.

'To do that, they need to be able to understand what a person wants to do and figure out how to help her achieve a goal.'

After the robot detects the objects in its surroundings, that data is used to generate 'continuous perceptual feedback' of where they are if they're moved, if they fall or their position changes in any way.

Information is then fed to a motion generation layer of the machine learning software, which enables the robot to make 'real-time, fast, reactive, adaptive and human-like motion,' Ratliff said.

The goal is for the kitchen manipulator to be able to handle dirty dishes, retrieve ingredients and cook alongside humans.

'One of the most challenging collaborative domains is the kitchen environment,' Ratliff explained.

'So we've chosen that as a test bed so we can develop a lot of these technologies, study the system in this space and take a lot of what we learn and apply them across the board to these other collaborative domains.'
