Ken Goldberg on Third Wave of Machine Learning

BCNM professor Ken Goldberg recently went on the TWIML AI (This Week in Machine Learning & AI) podcast with Sam Charrington to discuss robotic learning and the challenges that come with robotic grasping.

From the podcast description:

Ken, who is also an accomplished artist, and collaborator on projects such as DexNet and The Telegarden, has recently been focusing on robotic learning for grasping. In our conversation with Ken, we chat about some of the challenges that arise when working on robotic grasping, including uncertainty in perception, control, and physics. We also discuss his view on the role of physics in robotic learning, citing co-contributors Sergey Levine and Pieter Abbeel along the way. Finally, we discuss some of his thoughts on potential robot use cases, from the use of robots in assisting in telemedicine, and agriculture, and even robotic Covid-19 testing.
