Researchers are working on a technique that enables a humanoid robot to learn basic language skills by communicating directly with people. Google and Stanford University scientists have developed a large, cloud-based, deep-learning neural network suitable for complex tasks such as object recognition and machine translation. Scientists have developed an approach designed to let robots work with in concert with humans in factories and other settings.
