You may be thinking that you’ve seen robots solving a Rubik’s cube before, but before now, they could only do so with the help of human-made algorithms, which are a set of rules and processes that the machine would follow. Students at the University of California have solved the problem with a process called “autodidactic iteration”. This allows a machine to figure out possible solutions for itself. Supposedly this algorithm can solve 100 percent of randomly scrambled cubes in 30 moves or less! That is as fast or faster than a human’s performance! Check it out here.
On a fun, related note – here’s the Rubik’s Cube World Record Holder!
