Ken Goldberg's Lab Teaches Robots to Sew Sutures

Ken Goldberg's lab has worked with Google Brain and the Intel corporation to teach robots to sew sutures through training on YouTube videos!

From the article:

"YouTube gets 500 hours of new material every minute. It's an incredible repository," he said. "Any human can watch almost any one of those videos and make sense of it, but a robot currently cannot—they just see it as a stream of pixels. So the goal of this work is to try and make sense of those pixels. That is to look at the video, analyze it, and… be able to segment the videos into meaningful sequences."
