FORPHEUS is another example of deep learning! This is developed by the famous Japanese company Omron. Omron is famous for their medical appliances. Now, they are resorting to deep learning to train their robot – Forpheus – to play ‘ping pong’ (aka table tennis) and even, quite accurately. This happens to be the next best thing we hear after the success of Google’s AlphaGo in “pwning” the Go (a strategic board game – with way more combinations than chess) champs.
