Toyota is making AI-trained breakfast bots in a "kindergarten for robots" 1 Minute Read

Verge Editor Wes Davis shares his take on Toyota Research Institute’s announcement of a breakthrough generative AI approach that teaches robots new and dexterous skills in as little as an afternoon.

“Toyota Research Institute (TRI) used generative AI in a ‘kindergarten for robots’ to teach robots how to make breakfast — or at least, the individual tasks needed to do so — and it didn’t take hundreds of hours of coding and errors and bug fixing. Instead, researchers accomplished this by giving robots a sense of touch, plugging them into an AI model, and then, as you would a human being, showing them how,” Davis wrote.
