Google DeepMind's RT-2: Revolutionizing Robotic Learning 🤖🎓
Google DeepMind's robotics team has revealed the second version of its Robotics Transformer (RT-2), a system that enhances robots' adaptability by transferring learned concepts to different scenarios, even with smaller datasets. RT-2 demonstrates improved generalization capabilities and the ability to interpret new commands. It can also conduct rudimentary reasoning about object categories or high-level descriptions. As an example, the team cited RT-2's ability to identify and dispose of trash without explicit training. This knowledge transfer is possible due to a large corpus of web data. The system's performance rate for new tasks has improved from 32% with RT-1 to 62% with RT-2, demonstrating significant progress in the field of robotic learning.
