Meta AI Announces Advancements in Embodied AI: Artificial Visual Cortex & Adaptive Skill Coordination

embodied ai - artificial visual cortext - adaptive skill coordination

Meta AI has announced two major advancements in general-purpose embodied AI agents, focusing on challenging sensorimotor skills. These advancements include an artificial visual cortex called VC-1 and a new approach called Adaptive Skill Coordination (ASC). Both developments offer valuable benefits to data scientists and researchers in the field of AI. Embodied AI is field of AI focused on agents that can perceive, understand, and interact with their environment through sensorimotor experiences. It aims to create AI systems that can perform tasks in the physical world, bridging the gap between abstract thought and reasoning, and physical actions. VC-1 is a single perception model that supports a diverse range of sensorimotor skills, …
