Army Develops Model to Enable Question-Based Robotic Learning; Felix Gervits Quoted

Robotic Learning

The U.S. Army has created a computational model that enables robotic systems to learn from soldiers via conversational interaction. The service branch said Thursday it pursues this research in partnership with Tufts University under the Department of Defense's Laboratory University Collaboration Initiative (LUCI). The team will move the project forward by making the model understand more types of questions.
