    • Force-based robot learning of pouring skills using parametric hidden Markov models

      Demonstration phase: The human provides examples of the pouring task by teleoperating the robotic arm using a haptic device. The force perceptions sensed over the course of the task, along with their initial value (i.e., the task parameter), are used to train a parametric hidden Markov model. Robot execution stage:The robot carries out the pouring skill using Gaussian mixture regression to retrieve joint-level commands given the force-torque inputs at each time step. NOTE: The execution carried out by the robot is slow and sometime also shows "jerkiness", this occurs because two aspects, namely, (i) the provided demonstrations showed low velocity profiles which do not vary smoothly, and (ii) the robot controller only provides a position controller, thus velocity control is not possible here in order to get smoother and more realistic reproductions.

          • Skillex Research Statement

            A few months ago leaked documents uncovered the research of a laboratory in Finland that works for to the internationally operating Skillex corporation. A wave of rumors, speculations and conspiracy theories followed... Just now Skillex released an official statement to counter these speculations. Though being hard to understand for anyone who doesn't happen to be an expert in biochemics, the video reveals what the foundation of this obscure product development is. It seems however to be working purely in non digital ways. This means that they are really trying to extract stuff from donor's brains. Unfortunately the statement doesn't include any hints to what the extracted matter is or how the extraction process works. It is also unclear in which stage of development the research is. The claims of German blogger Kathrin Bauersmark that Skillex already conducted tests on human subjects seems not to contain any evidence. That's unless you count the mysterious "person familiar with the matter". Tell us what you think and let us know if you come across any other sources of information.
