Demonstrated by a startup called OpenAI, the Dactyl humanoid arm works on the basis of the experience gained in the virtual world, improvising real-world solutions
Developed in the past 12 months, it is controlled by an artificial intelligence engine OpenAI Five. The system can train for activities in the real world by first repeating the movements in a VR simulation. In order for everything to work, the Dactyl arm must adapt the experience gained in simulations and use imprecise visual information obtained through the use of several video cameras
Less predictable than in the virtual environment, the robot hand has a freedom of movement comparable to the human one.
Adapted to improvise, the Dactyl arm can realistically carry out several exercises that would test even a person's dexterity. In the demonstration provided, a cube is used, which must be rotated to show the desired letter at the top.
The AI system is however able to improvise and manipulate other objects in shape and
The technologies developed by OpenAI could make it possible for a new generation of industrial robots capable of solving complex tasks in the real world without the need for precise information, based on the experience gained in the simulations made in the virtual world. (19459006)
