iCub Practices Archery
Now that iCub has mastered recognizing objects, he has moved up to firing a weapon with the assistance of Augmented Reward Chained Regression. By modulating and coordinating hand and arm motion, the ARCHER algorithm helps him improve with each subsequent shot. This is one instance where it would not be a good thing for a human to become involved in his learning curve, no matter how cute he is. Dr. Petar Kormushev and team will be presenting the iCub's progress at the Humanoids 2010 Conference this December in Nashville, TN.
