Sylvain Calinon writes, "I am a postdoctoral fellow working on humanoid robot and imitation learning, at the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory (LASA), Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. We just posted some videos of our work on Youtube, showing a humanoid robot learning to whip egss, cut ham and grate cheese to do an omelet." There are two videos, a short version and a long version. You can read more about Sylvain's work on his website. The work is designed to allow robot learning by imitation using a three phase approach: demonstration, modeling, and reproduction. A number of research papers are available if you want to learn more about their approach. This work is being done at the EPFL Learning Algorithms and Systems Lab.
