‘Turing Learning’ Promises More Flexible Robots

Robotics Business Review

In the 1950s, Alan Turing, a famous mathematician and computer scientist who helped Britain crack enemy codes during World War II, published a paper describing a test he called the “Imitation Game.” This became the basis for a recent film, as well as “Turing learning.”

His test was straightforward: A “judge” has to differentiate whether the “person” speaking to him or her is a human being or a computer. If the judge is less than 50% sure that the person talking to him is a human, then the computer has reached a new level of artificial intelligence.

The test, which has come to be known as the “Turing Test,” has been used for decades to measure how advanced computers and software have become. But, the Turing Test was designed with humans in mind.

What happens when computers start judging other computers?

Business Takeaways:

  • U.K. researchers have developed “Turing learning,” a way for machines to learn on their own.
  • While current robots are limited to their programming or updates pushed to them, machine learning could enable industrial and service robots to adapt to new tasks and surroundings.
  • Robot and AI capabilities could be offered under an RaaS model.
