Ken Goldberg Quoted in NYT on Warehouse Robots

The New York Times recently published an article on the role of UC Berkeley robots in development in warehouses, featuring our very own Ken Goldberg's Automation Lab, which uses neural networks to improve robot grasping.

From the article:

Like Siemens and the Toyota Research Institute, Amazon is helping to fund the work at Berkeley, and it has an acute need for this kind of robot. For the past three years, the company has run a contest in which researchers seek to solve the “pick and place” problem. But the promise of machine-learning methods like the one used at Berkeley is that they can eventually extend to so many other areas, including manufacturing and home robotics.
