An international team of researchers has created the TidyBot robot, which can be commanded to clear spaces of objects.

The researchers first accessed a "text-based benchmark dataset" of written commands, then instructed large language models (LLMs) to execute them.

The LLMs summarized the commands, which encompassed 24 scenarios in four different rooms where two to five potential sites for object placement existed.

This led to a "generalized rule for where objects belong, for a specific user," which the researchers also applied to doing laundry.

They found the TidyBot “successfully puts away 85% of objects in real-world test scenarios.”
