Agility Robotics has released a clip showing how a user can control their logistics robot Digit with voice commands that the robot previously could not understand. In the clip, Digit is instructed to move a box that is the same color as Darth Vader’s lightsaber, i.e., red.


Thanks to Agility incorporating support for a large language model (LLM) in Digit, it has now become much better at understanding the voice commands it receives, something that allows it to interpret voice commands that are a bit less specific than those one might usually give to robots and other smart assistants.

Digit + Large Language Model = Embodied Artificial Intelligence

The clip also shows how Digit thinks and reasons to figure out the correct execution of the voice command it has received from the user.

Writer. Inspired in general by beautiful art, great literature, stunning architecture, old maps, foreign melodies and nice company.
