Pool-Playing Robot: Deep Green

The Robotics and Computer Vision Lab at Queen’s University Ontario has produced a working robotic system that can play pool. Called Deep Green, it appears to have an excellent understanding of geometry, although it’s not clear that it understands the rules of the game per se, or that it can do its own shot selection.

I’ve been playing quite a lot of pool recently. Some chance factors led to this, primarily some Irish friends taking the game up shortly before I visited. I used to play a lot (it could be argued that pool was effectively one of my undergrad minors), but have never been particularly good.
