Thinking Ahead

Humans have the ability to think about their action before they act. For example, if a person is about to kick a ball, they may wonder where the ball will go and how likely it is they'll have to move to the ball's new location. Robots (especially those that are not equipped with advanced artificial intelligence) are typically incapable of doing this, as they're often programmed to perform simple tasks.

A team of researchers at the University of California Berkeley have determined that robots can be capable of such perception. To prove it, they've developed a new robotic learning technology that enables robots to think ahead in order to "figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before."
