Entering a New Robotics Age with Machine Learning


Machine-learning (ML) technology is radically changing how robots work and dramatically extending their capabilities. The latest crop of ML technologies is still in its infancy, but it looks like we're at the end of the beginning with respect to robots. Much more looms on the horizon. ML is just one aspect of improved robotics. Robotics has demanding computational requirements, and that's being helped by improvements in multicore processing power.
