Entangled Relations can be now Understood by Artificial Intelligence!

‘In my table there is my laptop and towards it right is a notepad and on top of it lies a pen’. This kind of relationships are easy for us to find. Without knowledge of these kind of relationships, a robot is designed to help someone in a kitchen which would have difficulty in following a command like “pick up the glass that is to the left of the stove and place it on top of a tray”. 

Understanding this problem, MIT researchers have developed a model that understands the relationships between objects in a scene. The new model represents individual relationships one at a time, then combines these representations to describe the overall scene. This enables the model to generate more accurate images from text descriptions, even when the scene includes several objects that are arranged in different relationships with one another. 

This work can be applied in situations where industrial robots need to perform intricate, multistep manipulation tasks, like stacking items in a warehouse or assembling appliances. It also moves the field one step closer to enabling machines that can learn from and interact with their environments more like humans do!
