Interesting article on Artificial Intelligence

I had in my daily feeds an interesting article about a project involving Artificial Intelligence applyed to a real life system.

It’s about a helicopter how has to learn by itself to maintain a given height using a neural network trained by an evolutionary technique.

Check it out ! http://people.ece.cornell.edu/land/courses/ece4760/FinalProjects/s2012/sab323_and43/Website_sab323_and43_EvolvingHelicopter/website_evolvinghelicopter.html

I find this article quite interesting and inspiring as it demonstrates that with a quite simple installation and AI algorithms it is still possible to obtain something working and converging to a solution !

In another hand, there’s some stuff I don’t really interstand, like why did they chose to measure the helicopter height with a homemade IR and not with a potentiometer placed at the tip of the boom… I think there may be some good reasons…

Apart from that I really think it’s a good project and experiment !
Thank you Akshay and Sergio for sharing this ! Good work !
