The 'RoboHow' is much more than a kitchen appliance -- its greatest feat to date has been cooking pizza and pancakes. In a European project, the RoboHow robot has learned how to cook by using step-by-step instructions found in WikiHow.

However, using step-by-step instructions for the robot is only a method used by the project leaders to teach the robot how to read and understand language. Essentially, by teaching the robot how to read instructions, it may lead to more efficient and effective ways of communication between humans and robots.

Teaching robots how to do things incrementally can be an innovative step in the right direction, eliminating the need to program each robot. Ultimately, the goal of the RoboHow is to learn how to take instructions and convert them into actions.
