Cnet brings to attention a recent development by Nvidia which reports it has developed a first-of-its-kind deep learning-based system which would permit robots to learn a task simply by observing a human doing it.

"For robots to perform useful tasks in real-world settings, it must be easy to communicate the task to the robot; this includes both the desired result and any hints as to the best means to achieve that result," explained the researchers. "With demonstrations, a user can communicate a task to the robot and provide clues as to how to best perform the task."
