What is even more impressive is that the robot, nicknamed "Darwin," is actually teaching itself how to walk, much like a little child. The robot's developers, Pieter Abbeel and his team at UC Berkeley's Robot Learning Lab, explained that Darwin is not like other robots that are programmed to do only a set of things. This robot has a neural network designed to mimic the human brain, through which it undergoes the process called "reinforcement learning." "Imagine learning a new skill, like how to ride a bike.
