Meet Blue, the low-cost, human-friendly robot designed for AI

A new low-cost, human-friendly robot conceived and built by a team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.

Researchers have created a new low-cost, human-friendly robot named Blue, designed to use recent advances in artificial intelligence and deep reinforcement learning to master intricate (very complicated) human tasks.

All while remaining affordable and safe enough that every artificial intelligence researcher — and eventually every home — could have one.

Robots may have a talent for super-human strength and precision, but they still struggle with some basic human tasks — like folding laundry or making a cup of coffee.
