Researchers just trained a robot to use nunchucks using trial and error

Researchers from the New Jersey Institute of Technology taught a robot how to use a pair of nunchucks.

The research was part of a machine learning experiment that would require a robot to handle complex objects consisting of a combination of parts with different materials and rigidities.

This type of machine learning could be applied to other fields where delicate precision is required such as car interior fitting or fruit picking.
