A robot can be teached to make pancakes, as an example. In the RoboHow project, once one robot perfects a specific task, that knowledge is collected in a database for all other RoboHow robots to access. Actually, the “students” robots in this project acquire the necessary knowledge semi-automatically from instructions in the World Wide Web, in a supervised way via human instruction and demonstration and observing demonstrations. “Common sense knowledge like moving the spatula to place the pancake on the plate – it’s an implicit knowledge humans have, but it’s extremely hard to make that explicit for a robot,” Professor Michael Beetz from UNIHB’s Dept of Computer Science and head of RoboHow told to the media. In other words, humans need to have patience before asking performence.
