Robots adapt to damage in seconds

Researchers have developed robots that learn to live with damaged parts in less than a minute, instead of the many hours needed by traditional self-learning systems.

The system paves the way for robots to be used in a wide variety of settings, coping with damage that occurs in the real world.

Possible applications include robots looking after the elderly, rescuing earthquake victims or doing housework.

Details are in the journal Nature.
