According to The Robot Report, a team of researchers led by Northwestern University has developed an AI algorithm that can design functioning robots from scratch. At its full potential, the team hopes its AI program can help build new creations in the future that humans have never even considered.
The researchers didn't share many details about how the program works, except that it is similar to ChatGPT in that it functions based on prompts (or questions) by users. To start, the team asked the program to design a physical machine capable of walking on land and didn't ask the program anything more, allowing it to evaluate its work and adjust the design without further human input.
