What is Everyday Robots by Google?
Why I'm blown away by Code as Polices
This is Artificial Intelligence Survey Premium,
The Alphabet X lab has a bright spot and its called Everyday Robots. This blog by Google changed how I see Google as a robotics R&D leader. I just wrote a longer article for A.I. Supremacy about how Code as Polices.
Google Research calls its new development "Code as Policies" and asserts that code-writing LLMs can be re-purposed to write robot policy code in response to natural language commands.
This means in the future robots will be easier to communicate with and give commands to while they write their own code in Python to enable the action.
Alphabet’s Everyday Robots project, which aims to develop robots capable of performing day-to-day tasks such as tidying chairs is surprisingly innovative. X is Google’s Moonshot factory - that is - The X research lab explores emerging technologies that fall outside the main focus area of parent Alphabet. Before the Everyday Robots project, the lab ran the autonomous driving initiative that would eventually become Waymo LLC. X has also developed a variety of other technologies.
Just as Tesla thinks general purpose robots are important according to Elon Musk’s masterplan for the company, Google’s R&D in the domain is super interesting.
