New robots can see into their future

UC Berkeley researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before.

During the month of December the UC Berkeley community and the public have the opportunity to experience what is being "Made at Berkeley." More than 28 Arts + Design departments, classes, and centers are presenting their work at pop-up exhibitions, week long gallery exhibitions, design showcases and open houses.
