Researchers built a robot hand that mimics human dexterity and learns on its own

Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a robot hand that mimics human dexterity and reflexes. Even more impressive, though, is the robot’s ability to learn over time. With no additional input or coding, the robot becomes more adept and skilled on its own.

Special thanks to Simone Giertz for the additional footage.
