Alphabet’s Robots will be able to Understand More Complex Sentences Thanks to PaLM Support

Alphabet combines its robotics and AI-powered language technologies to make its robots smarter.

Robotic technologies, which are seen as the future of the technology world, continue to develop day by day. Robots, which are expected to take place in many points of our daily lives in the future, are becoming even smarter with the development of artificial intelligence technologies.

Since 2019, Alphabet, which has been developing cleaning-oriented robots, focuses on making its robots understand people better with artificial intelligence-oriented language support. Using the artificial intelligence-based language technology PaLM (Pathways Language Model) developed by Google to make its robots smarter, Alphabet enables its robots to understand more complex sentences.

As a reminder, robots with artificial intelligence can generally understand simpler and shorter sentences / commands for now. Alphabet’s cleaning robots, which can understand this directly when given the command to clean an area, could have problems with complex sentences.

Alphabet’s robots, which solved this problem with PaLM support, can now correctly understand even a question sentence such as “I spilled my drink, can you help me?” and perform the necessary cleaning. In short, Alphabet’s robots have gotten smarter with PaLM support.

Alphabet, which continues its tests on the subject, stated that 84 percent of the robots were able to prepare the correct responses for the users’ commands and 74 percent were able to successfully complete the instructions. It will not be a surprise that robots, which are getting smarter every day, will appear more and more in the future.
