Google's New Robot Understanding Human Language
Google’s new robot is getting closer to understanding natural language that humans might use, thanks to the reasoning capabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs) that can now be applied to planning and interaction for robotics. This means that soon, robots will be able to decipher simple phrases, such as ‘when you have a minute, please grab me a drink’, instead of only basic words.

IHMC Robotics teamed up with Boardwalk Robotics to develop a next-generation Nadia humanoid robot with a high power-to-weight ratio, and now, the ability to withstand hard shoves while walking on a treadmill. Named after world famous gymnast Nadia Comăneci, this project has a 3-year timeline in which it will be trained to function well in indoor environments, complete with stairs, ladders and more.
