Abstract:

MIT professor Rodney Brooks studies and engineers robot intelligence, looking for the holy grail of robotics: the AGI, or artificial general intelligence. Brooks realized that building the biggest brain possible and teaching it everything we could think of would never work. What would work is a robot who learns like we do, by trial-and-error, and one who has many separate parts that learn separate jobs. A founder of the iRobot, makers of the Roomba vacuum, Brooks recently left that company to start Heartland Robotics. In this prophetic TEDTalk, roboticist Brooks talks about how robots are going to work their way into our lives--starting with toys and moving into household chores--and beyond.
