This Springer short examines the combo of laptop imaginative and prescient options and computing device studying algorithms precious for humanoid robots to enhance “true consciousness.” It illustrates the severe first step in the direction of achieving “deep learning,” lengthy thought of the holy grail for desktop studying scientists around the world. utilizing the instance of the iCub, a humanoid robotic which learns to resolve 3D mazes, the booklet explores the demanding situations to create a robotic that may understand its personal atmosphere. instead of depending exclusively on human programming, the robotic makes use of actual contact to improve a neural map of its atmosphere and learns to alter the surroundings for its personal gain. those strategies let the iCub to competently clear up any maze, if an answer exists, inside of a number of iterations. With transparent research of the iCub experiments and its effects, this Springer short is perfect for complex point scholars, researchers and execs enthusiastic about machine imaginative and prescient, AI and computer learning.
