Meet 'Galileo,' a new AI system from MIT that could help robots help us during disasters

Katherine Noyes | Jan. 6, 2016
Deep learning helps the system predict how physical objects will collide and interact.

The paper was presented last month at the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems in Montreal, MIT announced on Monday.

Eventually, the researchers hope to extend the work to more complex scenarios, with an eye toward applications in robotics and artificial intelligence.

“Imagine a robot that can readily adapt to an extreme physical event like a tornado or an earthquake,” said coauthor Joseph Lim. “Ultimately, our goal is to create flexible models that can assist humans in settings like that, where there is significant uncertainty.”
