”Scientists create robots can follow spoken instructions” An advance that can make it easier for people to interact with machines at home and workplace, scientist have successfully created robots that can understand spoken instructions. “The issue we’re addressing is language grounding, which means having a robot take natural language commands and generate behaviours that successfully complete a task,” said Dilip Arumugam, from Brown University in the US. “The problem is that commands can have different levels of abstraction, and that can cause a robot to plan its actions inefficiently or fail to complete the task at all,” Arumugam said. “But the latest invention is a step towards the goal of enabling people to communicate with robots in much the same way that we communicate with each other,” said Stefanie Tellex, a professor of computer science at Brown.
