A research team led by Northwestern University scientists created an artificial intelligence (AI) capable of designing robots from scratch almost immediately.
The researchers prompted the algorithm to design a robot from a block about the size of a bar of soap, which generated a successful design in 26 seconds.
Northwestern's Sam Kriegman said, "We told the AI that we wanted a robot that could walk across land. Then we simply pressed a button and presto!"
The algorithm operates on a lightweight personal computer; other AI systems often require power-hungry supercomputers and huge datasets.
The researchers fabricated the robot from the AI's blueprint, validating its real-world performance.
