New Facebook AI Could Revolutionize Point to Point Robot Travel Accuracy

Robots have become a surprisingly common part of our every day lives, and the fact of the matter is that chances are high that eventually they would become even more thoroughly incorporated into our daily routines. That being said and out of the way, there are still a few roadblocks associated with the use of robots in order to help us accomplish everyday tasks that we might think are not all that important for us or don’t seem to be all that high up on our list of priorities and yet are still tasks that generally need to be worked on.

The major roadblock that robots are facing these days are, well, actual road blocks. What we mean is that there is a problem with accuracy as well as efficiency. Robots can get from point A to point B but it takes them a long time to figure out how to get there, and their ability to predict obstacles as well as figure out a way to bypass these obstacles is not optimal by any stretch. Additionally there is a problem associated with computing power. A lot of the computing power robots have goes into handling the task that has been assigned, and getting to a certain place efficiently requires more computational power that is unfortunately not available.

Facebook has been working on an AI that might just make it a great deal easier for robots to move around accurately and efficiently. The new AI uses an algorithm that helps robots move around with the need of a map, and that too with only a 3% chance of the robot not taking the optimal route each time. This can truly revolutionize robot mechanics as field and vastly change the potential these machines have in the future economy.
