"While reinforcement learning agents have achieved some successes in a variety of domains, their applicability has previously been limited to domains in which useful features can be handcrafted, or to domains with fully observed, low-dimensional state spaces. Here we use recent advances in training deep neural networks to develop a novel artificial agent, termed a deep Q-network, that can learn successful policies directly from high-dimensional sensory inputs using end-to-end reinforcement learning. We tested this agent on the challenging domain of classic Atari 2600 games. We demonstrate that the deep Q-network agent, receiving only the pixels and the game score as inputs, was able to surpass the performance of all previous algorithms and achieve a level comparable to that of a professional human games tester across a set of 49 games, using the same algorithm, network architecture and hyperparameters."

YouTube. jennymanda (2009) James May - ASIMO robot learns object identity *HQ*.


Video demonstrating the visual recognition of objects by an AI installed within the robot ASIMO. May was able to input object data via visual sensors using only audio commands.


ASIMO was able to assess and store visual keys based on an objects shape and was even able to distinguish when an object was similar to something already stored in its database. It would then use this information to make decisions on what were known or unknown objects and even discern requested objects.


Informative but brief view on visual recognition being used to help AI learn objects, form categories, and make decisions based off of this data.
