Machine Learning has given us amazing new technologies: Image recognition, Speech-to-text, machine translation,.. And yet, having a robotic arm build a simple lego house remains one of the most challenging problems in the field. Why is such a trivial task (which children learn without effort) so hard even for state-of-the-art machine learning techniques? In this talk I will give a general introduction to Reinforcement Learning, an overview of the most challenging problems in the field and an outlook on what we can expect in the near future of intelligent robotics.
