Google’s robotics researchers have developed a robot that can write its own programming code based on natural language instructions.

Instead of having to dive into a robot’s configuration files to change block_target_color from #FF0000 to #FFFF00, you could just type “pick up the yellow block” and the robot would do the rest.

Code as Policies (or CaP for short) is a coding-specific language model developed from Google’s Pathways Language Model (PaLM) to interpret natural language instructions and turn them into code it can run.

Google’s researchers trained the model by giving it examples of instructions (formatted as code comments written by the developers to explain what the code does for anyone reviewing it) and the corresponding code.

From that, it was able to take new instructions and “autonomously generate new code that re-composes API calls, synthesizes new functions, and expresses feedback loops to assemble new behaviours at runtime,” Google engineers explained in a blog.
