Is Shadowing the Real Unlocker?

A team of Stanford researchers has proposed a full-stack method for robotics training called HumanPlus. In this method, robots learn by imitating us directly while solving one of the field's main problems: human data gathering.

They can perform several actions, including putting on and tying shoes, folding clothes, and playing the piano, many of which we have never seen an autonomous robot perform.

If scalable, this method could allow us to use the infinite data available from humans’ actions in the real world to create humanoids that behave just like us.

And the one company that stands to benefit the most from this research is not a robotics company.

You are probably sick of AI newsletters talking about how this or that **just** happened. These newsletters abound because coarsely talking about events and things that already took place is easy, but the value provided is limited, and the hype exaggerated.

However, newsletters talking about what will happen are a rare sight. If you’re into easy-to-understand insights looking into the future of AI before anyone else does, TheTechOasis newsletter might be perfect for you.
