Robotics continues to develop. We are already familiar with a female humanoid robot trained emotions and good soft bear to assist the departure. In addition, there is already liquid metal from the “Terminator”, and the prototype of the artificial intelligence, too, has been received. Then the scientists wanted to teach the robot to be angry, but now earnestly taught to own the car rolled better than the most skillful masters of the world.
The Japanese company Yaskawa Electric Corporation has decided to demonstrate what it is capable of industrial robot, to use modern technology. So, with the help of motion capture (motion capture) are often used in animated movies and games for a more natural movements painted models to copy motion Samurai Isao Machii (Isao Machii) and teach them to the robot.
Isao Machii is a master of Iaido and even established in 2007, a world record for speed of 1000 surprise attacks, each of which should end in an even log cabins bamboo stem wrapped straw mats, for which he earned the nickname of the fastest in the world of the samurai. The robot carried out after training, not only successfully coped with the task, but also surpassed his teacher. However, this is not surprising, since in contrast to the human, the machine does not need a rest, because it did not get tired.
At this rate, the forecast of a hundred Hawking handicap humanity may be overly optimistic, because the people themselves do not leave yourself a chance, teaching machines do not just certain abilities and making them, in fact, better than the most skilled representatives of a particular case.
