+ - Teachable robot helps assemble IKEA furniture->

Submitted by cylonlover
cylonlover (1921924) writes "Teaching a robot how to deal with real-world problems is a challenging task. There has been much progress in building robots that can precisely repeat individual tasks with a level of speed and accuracy impossible for human craftspeople. But there are many more tasks that could be done if robots could be supplied with even a limited amount of judgement. A robotics group led by Professor Sylvain Calinon at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) is making progress in solving this problem and has developed a robot whose purpose in life is to help a person build an IKEA table."
