TOKYO—Toshiba Corporation has developed the world’s first AI for precise control of complex robot operations using ‘offline reinforcement learning’ with a small amount of data. Toshiba evaluated this AI by simulation of eight types of tasks, such as picking and placing objects, in a publicly available benchmark environment. The average success rate, which was 36% with conventional methods, improved to 72% with the newly developed AI, achieving world-class precision.

Kawasaki, Japan – Toshiba Corporation has started two demonstration experiments exploring advanced energy conservation and security in its office in Innovation Palette, its state-of-the-art R&D facility in Kawasaki, Japan: an energy conservation demonstration that estimates people flows to provide optimal control of lighting and air conditioning; and a security demonstration that combines Toshiba’s video analysis AI with cocobo, a security robot developed by SECOM Co. Ltd. Both demonstrations utilize an operational digital twin, which recognizes spaces, people, and energy usage, using data collected from sensors and cameras to realize appropriate control and optimization of facilities.
