Solving a Rubik’s Cube is hard. But this robotic hand did it one-handed! Instead of being programmed to solve the colorful puzzle, the robot learned how to do it with artificial intelligence (AI). This type of software can learn and make decisions in a similar way to how humans do. To teach the robot AI, scientists built a computer model that simulated more than 10,000 possible puzzle-solving movements.
There isn’t much demand for robots that solve Rubik’s Cubes, but its inventors at OpenAI say this AI could learn to do jobs that require complex hand movements.
