Facebook taught robots adapt to their environment.

The company’s robotics department has unveiled a new Rapid Motor Adaptation (RMA) robot motion model that allows robots to adapt to motion in any new environment. The RMA motion model allows you to bypass the limitations associated with the standard algorithms built into the robots by their developers.
Experts from Facebook claim that this is the first adaptive technology in the world, which is built on the latest developments of the company in the field of algorithms and adaptation of motor functions of robots. This algorithm allows the robot to perform end-to-end learning, thanks to which the robot, even without experience of interacting with a particular environment, is able to learn the correct behavior model in any environment in a matter of seconds.
In a real experiment, the developers used a four-legged robot dog from the Chinese company Unitree. As a result, it turned out that the RMA algorithm makes the robot much more versatile than the standard model without additional software.
The authors of the project are confident that the algorithm developed by them will reduce the cost of robots in the future by eliminating more expensive parts and algorithms.
