I have a real interest in artificial intelligence and in particular, I like working on the ideas that govern self-learning or autonomous learning. [This can be a difficult idea to express to people as I have tried before, and I only see confused faces after I’m done talking.] It’s trying to come up with algorithms that would allow an agent to change internal parameters or settings so that, through experience, they can get better (or learn) at performing a task.
This is an interesting clip (from 4 years ago!) that shows autonomously learning robots. They are learning to control their own bodies and developing their own language. Hopefully, this better explains this idea better than I could.
