Google's DeepMind AI just taught itself to walk

  • Added:  12 days ago
  • Google's artificial intelligence company, DeepMind, has developed an AI that has managed to learn how to walk, run, jump, and climb without any prior guidance. The result is as impressive as it is goofy.

    It's more funny how the comments keep making jokes and forgot that the fact if an AI can teach it self how to walk...why can it teach it self how to destroy the human race? Just sayin...anyone wants pizza ??

    LOL maybe it knows something we dont? LOL run through an obstacle course in the same way. Please, please film that and put it on Youtube. Perhaps they should show it millions of images of humans walking and running and apply that to what it has learned about the courses they show in this video. Then it can combine the two into what would amount to something slightly better than an average or even above average human.

    "...this animation shows something pretty amazing". OK. And what would that be exactly? These walking experiments are one of the basics every programmer who ever went into the field of AI has done at some point. You can even download several frameworks and testing-engines for doing these without the need for writing code. Nice movements though. I would have waited for a few more generations so it becomes smoother. Or ask someone with more experience how to make the outputs less "jittery" - a problem each newbie in the field faces sooner or later.

    Here's my theory on why their arms are like that. It's from a defensive point of view. Survival of the fittest applies to AI as well people. Kill it before it grows. I am from the future and you have been warned.

  • Halonics

    From the way it stupidly flails about, you can tell how little sense this experiment makes. It's not really "learning" how to walk (since the action itself has no "meaning" to the system), it merely tries many different forms of imitation until one scores the highest. This approach merely looks good in these nice, sterilized tests, but it won't get you very far in a truly complex environment, let alone in real life.
