Re: The Cooking Robot is Deadly
@LiTan- I don't think we're talking about replacing the Iron Chefs with actual Iron chefs. The issue is that it learned while watching video how to do something complicated. It actually doesn't matter if it cooks with flair and combines ingedients in new and exciting ways. What matters is that instead of programming the computer by hand to mix ingredients, it learned on its own.
Imagine what that means for industrial robots that right now have to be painstakingly programmed by hand. Imagine what it means for creating robots that move and interact in the world without our intervention. Cooking was selcteded because it is a complicated, non-frightening procedure that has lots of ready-made video to learn from.
