DeepMind train robot soccer players that kick, tackle, and defend

Researchers at Google’s DeepMind have achieved a milestone in robotics by successfully training 20-inch tall humanoid robots to play one-on-one soccer matches.  Their study, published in Science Robotics, details how they used deep reinforcement learning (RL) to teach the robots complex locomotion and gameplay skills. The commercially available Robotis OP3 robots learned to run, kick, block, get up from falls, and score goals – all without any manual programming. Instead, AI agents controlling the robots acquired these abilities through trial and error in simulated environments, guided by a reward system. Here’s how the robotic soccer system works: First, they trained…
