Humanoid Robot can Shoot Arrows

from RoboticsTrends:

Ready, aim, release. That sequence for shooting an arrow at a target might be self-evident to adults and even children, but not so for a robot. So researchers at the Italian Institute ofTechnology developed a learning algorithm that’s being used to teach the skill of archery to a humanoid robot known as iCub.

The learning algorithm, called ARCHER (Augmented Reward Chained Regression), was developed and optimized specifically for problems like the archery training, which have a smooth solution space and prior knowledge about the goal to be achieved.

This sounds oh so nice and academic, but robotics expert Stephen Colbert has a much more suspicious take on the whole thing.
