RoboCLIP dramatically reduces how much data is needed to train robots.

An algorithm developed by computer scientists at the University of Southern California (USC) reduces the amount of data necessary to train robots and enable them to perform tasks after a single video demonstration or language description.

The RoboCLIP algorithm performed two to three times better than other imitation learning methods after one video or textual demonstration of a task.

RoboCLIP trains robots using video-language models (VLMs), which are pretrained on large numbers of video and textual demonstrations.
