Recently, AI chip leader Nvidia announced Project GR00T which promises to revolutionise the evolution of humanoid robots.

About Project GR00T

  • The project GR00T stands for Generalist Robot 00 Technology.
  • It is a multimodal AI system that acts as the mind for humanoid robots, allowing them to learn new skills and interact with the real world.
  • Robots built on this platform are designed to understand natural language and emulate movements by observing human actions, such as instantly learning coordination, dexterity, and other skills.
  • This can help the robots navigate and engage with the real world around them.
  • The project aims to empower humanoid robots with human-like understanding and movement using Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • The model has been trained on NVIDIA GPU-accelerated simulation, and enables the humanoids to learn from human demonstrations with imitation learning, and from the robotics platform NVIDIA Isaac Lab for reinforcement learning.
  • While imitation learning involves observing an expert performing a task and learning to imitate those actions, reinforcement learning is a machine learning method that trains software to make decisions to achieve the most optimal results.

Q1) What is an example of multimodal AI?

A multimodal model is a ML (machine learning) model that is capable of processing information from different modalities, including images, videos, and text.
