Toyota Research Institute (TRI) has been a silent pioneer in the robotics space. For years, TRI has made various steps forward, which Robotics Enthusiast Brian Lederer has been happy to discuss here on his blog. Now, TRI is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to teach a robot how to make breakfast in their “kindergarten for robots” series.
Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is using generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) to put their newest robot line through the paces. No, these robots are not autonomous chauffeurs. These are breakfast bots! Brian Lederer is fascinated by TRI’s recently discussed “kindergarten for robots,” which is teaching AI models how to perform basic tasks. Previously, the group has created a basketball playing model, which successfully shoots hoops out on the court better than the late, great Kobe Bryant. Now, their breakfast bot is coming for Chef Gordon Ramsey’s sport with TRI’s latest coding! One such robot is able to whip up eggs for some scrambled eggs. Truly starting with the basics like the rest of us, the two-armed, faceless device has yet to master more complicated breakfast options, like a frittata. But TRI IT department’s coding error corrections and bug fixing is sure to streamline that sooner than we might expect!
Would you eat breakfast cooked by a robot? Brian Lederer, Information Technology (IT) Professional is certainly willing to give it a taste test!
