Video: A Robot That Can Figure Out New Tasks Based On the Ones It Knows | Popular Science
: To borrow an example from the video below, the robot can fill up a glass of water from a bottle via pre-programmed instructions. But if halfway through the task its overseer asks it to chill the water, the robot will actually stop and think about the next steps.
Figuring that it can’t grab an ice cube until it empties one of its two hands, it then reasons that the water bottle is more expendable than the glass of water and sets the bottle down. It then grabs the ice and drops the cube into the glass. Task completed, no extra programming necessary.
