There are numerous applications of Artificial Intelligence or AI since it is supposed to be a self learning system. Whatever you teach the system, it is supposed to understand and adapt to it, while learning some things additionally, which are not actually coded. There are many companies working on their own version of AI but Elon Musk founded OpenAI is now in the news for training a robot hand that can solve a Rubik’s Cube. While it might not seem like something big at first, but it is indeed a notable achievement.
Dactyl is a robotic arm developed by OpenAI, which was used to demonstrate increased dexterity in robotics. The company trained a pair of neural networks to solve a Rubik’s Cube using Dactyl. However, to understand what’s happening, we need to take a look at how general AI works. We currently use task repetition for training a neural network, which is basically letting it practise something in a virtual environment for years at a hastened pace.
