Marco Polo Game Teaches Detection and Interception
Duke University and Univ. of New Mexico researchers took the basic principles of the swimming game Marco Polo to increase a robot's ability to detect and intercept things that are moving via algorithms. The bots have camera sensors that can identify where cells within a certain space are and then can figure out where it will move. Obviously, this can have military applications in the future, but we wonder if we could use it to simply find our car keys.
