Researchers at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology have developed a way for high school students and first-year engineering students to learn robot intelligence technologies.
The researchers demonstrated how students taught their robots to acquire skills by implementing a reinforcement learning (RL) process using simulation modeling and cloud communication.
In the first phase, first- and second-year students performed an RL activity in which a humanoid robot learned to adapt its body tilt angle for lifting different weights. In the second phase, 11th graders constructed animal-like robots and implemented various scenarios that used the approach tested in the first phase. In the final stage, university students applied RL, three-dimensional modeling, and cloud-based operations to a project in which a humanoid robot learned to manipulate multiple joints while maintaining its stability.
The development of learning robots is highly engaging to students, and those concepts and technologies are within the grasp of understanding for the students.
