Boston Dynamics created a robot tour guide using Spot integrated with Chat GPT and other AI models as a proof of concept for the robotics applications of foundational models.
“This expansion has been fueled in part by the rise of large Foundation Models (FM)– large AI systems trained on a massive dataset. These models usually have millions or billions of parameters and were trained by scraping raw data from the public internet. These models tend to have what is called Emergent Behavior—the ability to perform tasks outside of what they were directly trained on. Because of this, they can be adapted for a variety of applications, acting as a foundation for other algorithms.”
