Robot hand learns real world moves in virtual training

Researchers backed by Tesla Inc founder Elon Musk and Silicon Valley financier Sam Altman have found a novel way to use software to teach a human-like robotic hand new tasks, a discovery that could eventually make it more economical to train robots to do things that are easy for humans. Researchers at OpenAI, a nonprofit artificial intelligence research group founded in 2015, said they had taught a robotic hand to rotate a lettered, multi-colored block until a desired side of the block faces upward. The task is simple. But the advance was in how the hand gained the skill: All the learning happened in a software simulation and was then transferred to the physical world with relative ease.
