Artificial Pancake Flipping

Dr Sylvain Calinon of the Italian Institute of Technology writes, "The blog is great, but it seriously lacks some pancake flipping robot videos!!" Well, we aim to please, so here's some video of a robot learning to flip artificial pancakes. By coincidence, this pancake flipping robot is the work of Dr Petar Kormushev and Dr Sylvain Calinon from the Italian Institute of Technology. It's an impressive feat of engineering but it's also just crazy fun to watch a robot throwing pancakes around. For more, see the paper Robot Motor Skill Coordination with EM-based Reinforcement Learning
