New AI technology seems to be popping up all over the place these days and a team over at Stanford have utilized autonomous bot tech for a little helicopter fun. They’ve developed robotic helicopters that can learn new tricks by watching other helicopters. For real!
It’s interesting, because these robots can learn by “watching” rather than by being programmed. I’m already imagining how air shows would be forever changed by this technology.
However, these intelligent and adaptable helicopters could be used for non-entertainment things too, like figuring out a route to put out wildfires. But for the moment, we’ll just have to accept these little copters as fun toys. And I’m totally fine with that.
