PID Control – Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

PID Control – Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

Let’s now talk about the second part of this lesson called PID control. PID control is a vast field in control, and many, many classes can be taught about this one subject matter. What I’ll do is I’ll give you the very basics, and I’ll let you implement the very basics. I promise it’ll be […]

Saving the world one algorithm at a time | The Age of A.I.

Kurt Vonnegut said, “Science is magic that works.” I buy it. Makes perfect sense… but it wasn’t long ago that we couldn’t understand what caused entire species to become extinct, why the ground shook, or crops dried out. One of the promises of A.I. is that it’ll enable us to use machine learning for prediction […]

Total Probability – Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

Let me begin my story in a world where our robot resides. Let’s assume the robot has no clue where it is. Then we would model this with a function–I’m going to draw into this diagram over here where the vertical axis is the probability for any location in this world, and the horizontal axis […]

Love, art and stories: decoded | The Age of A.I.

[turns off engine] Here’s one: are there certain qualities that are untouchable for AI, or at some point, might it be able to emulate everything? Even the stuff that we consider to be distinctly human, like instinct. Getting here on time took some of that, right? Or creativity, actual emotion, making a connection. We’re gonna […]

Resampling Wheel – Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

Resampling Wheel – Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

[Narrator] So, here’s an idea how to make this more efficient, and it turns out empirically it also gives better samples. Let’s represent all our particles and importance weight in a big wheel. Each particle occupies a slice that corresponds to its importance weight. Particles with a bigger weight, like W5, occupy more space. Whereas […]
