How is Deep Learning Making Robots Smarter?

Brian Moore (Training Coordinator @ IVADO)
From an early age, young children easily learn to recognize and manipulate objects, communicate, and be functional in a complex and unpredictable environment. This is not the case for robots. Interpreting sensor information, communicating with surrounding humans, and learning are huge challenges for robots. This explains why, to this day, robots have been limited to perform only very simple and repetitive tasks. Come to learn what deep learning is and discover how it is making robots smarter.

Is artificial intelligence, intelligence?

Guillaume Chicoisne (Director of scientific programs @ IVADO)
For millennia, intelligence was believed to be a quality of humans alone. Then, we admitted animals could be intelligent too. Now, computers are doing things that only an
intelligent being could do. Are they intelligent? How different and similar are the intelligences of animals, and the ones of computers? Let’s think about what we talk about when we talk about intelligence!
