Algorithm helps robot adapt like animals.
The more complex robots get, the more ways they can be unpredictably damaged. Animals have a built-in adaption system (i.e. if you can’t walk on one leg, you might figure out how to hop on the other or use crutches). Robots don’t. Researchers in France and the US have created an algorithm that helps robots create fallback adaptations without requiring builders to hard-code them. | learn more
