Parenting a 3-Year-Old Robot

They watch, imitate and replay what they see to learn skills and behaviors. The researchers set out to develop a robotic AI agent with manipulation abilities equivalent to a 3-year-old child. As a parent would guide their child, researchers teleoperated the robot through tasks to provide it with useful self-experiences. RoboSet is the largest publicly available robotics data set on commodity hardware. The team hopes this will enable others to reuse, adapt and pass it forward, leading to a truly foundational general robotic agent over time.
