As humans and machines work more closely together, there are opportunities for robots to learn and adapt new skills based on their environments.
Machine learning, deep reinforcement learning, computer vision and advancements in simulated environments will soon lead to robots with early-stage cognitive abilities.
Applications include environmental cleanups, exploring dangerous terrain and assisting first responders.
