Google taught this robotic dog to learn new tricks by imitating a real one

Google researchers are using imitation learning to teach autonomous robots how to pace, spin, and move in more agile ways.What they did: Using a data set of motion capture data recorded from various sensors attached to a dog, the researchers taught a quadruped robot named Laikago several different movements that are hard to achieve through traditional hand-coded robotic controls.How they did it: First, they used the motion data from the real dog to construct simulations of each maneuver, including a dog trot, side-step, and … a dog version of classic ’80s dance move, the running man.
