Arizona State 🏤University’s robotics 👓researchers have created a robot🤖 that taught itself to shoot hoops🏀 & move dynamically using ‘reinforcement learning algorithms.’ After several iterations😓, the two-armed robot, called the Sun Devil, learned to score through a net in only 2⃣ hours. It is capable of gripping, releasing & aiming a ball🎾 using its two hand-like prongs. Reinforcement learning allows robots to acquire new skills using practice – just how G👀gle’s Alpha Go computer🤖 learned to defeat the human Go champion🏆. Writing the code for such a procedure would have taken even an experienced programmer several days😯.
