Robot DE NIRO from Imperial's Robot Intelligence Lab at the Imperial Festival

Robot DE NIRO from Imperial's Robot Intelligence Lab took part in this year's Imperial Festival. The robot performed live demonstrations of its physical skill learning capabilities, including a buzz-wire task, a drawing task, and a hockey playing task.

As artificial intelligence becomes more advanced, it’s not enough to just pre-program a robot with rigid instructions to follow. Machines are increasingly able to learn how to recognise patterns in data, but learning how to interact with the physical world is a different matter. Robot DE NIRO is learning how to use its two arms and hands to manipulate objects and interact with people by observing and modifying its own behaviour.
