AI is awesome all over again

The painfully short description for this video is: “teams of quadrotors autonomously build tower-like cubic structures from modular parts.” Autonomous, in this case, could maybe possibly (anyway to make this even more passive and wishy-washy?) be considered AI for today’s revised definition. The video and the following Wired article are unrelated but I think there’s some interesting connections.

“By using probability-based algorithms to derive meaning from huge amounts of data, researchers discovered that they didn’t need to teach a computer how to accomplish a task; they could just show it what people did and let the machine figure out how to emulate that behavior under similar circumstances.” Read the whole article, The AI Revolution Is On, to see some other definitions.

And here’s a fun little video from last summer demonstrating the Kiva robots mentioned in that Wired article too.
