Video systems enable robot to anticipate human behaviour

May 2013
Engineer (Online Edition);5/30/2013, p4
The article discusses a study, led by Ashutosh Saxena of Cornell University, in which a robot capable of predicting human behavior was developed. The robot's ability to make decisions on whether or not to offer assistance is mentioned. The robot also generates a set of possible continuations into the future of activities that it sees and determines how to use objects in the scene to fit with the activities.
