Industrial AI Podcast: This Week in Machine Learning, Ep. 2

We’ve partnered with the This Week in Machine Learning & AI podcast for a 7-part series on Industrial AI. Check out Episode 2 below and stay tuned for an upcoming paper exploring the unique challenges and requirements of Industrial AI.

In Part 2 of TWIML’s Industrial AI series, Sam Charrington talks to renowned roboticist, Pieter Abbeel. Pieter and Sam discuss the basics of reinforcement learning, the challenges of training robotics systems for commercial applications, and where this technology is headed.

It’s really powerful to be able to learn from scratch. But the way humans often learn is by imitation… we build upon what previous generations have developed, have built and learn from that much more effectively than if we had to start from scratch. -Pieter Abbeel

Be sure to listen to the full conversation with Pieter below. If you want to explore using reinforcement learning in your own organization, learn more at bons.ai or download our whitepaper.
