Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have developed C-LEARN, a system designed to enable non-coders to educate robots in a range of tasks by supplying some information about how objects are usually manipulated and then showing the robot a single demonstration.
C-LEARN lets users teach robots skills that can be automatically passed on to other robots that move in different ways.
The user first provides the robot with a knowledge base of information on how to reach and grip various objects with different constraints. The operator then employs a three-dimensional interface to show the robot a single demonstration of the task, represented by a series of "keyframe" movements.
Matching these keyframes to the different situations in the knowledge base enables the robot to automatically suggest motion plans for the operator to approve or change as needed.
