Is there a taxonomy of errors that are common in robotics? Things that come to mind but I don't have names for are:
- Getting stuck in a stable infinite loop
- Going into an unstable feedback loop (A balancing robot overcompensating more with each correction)
- An inability to generalize between tasks (Pick up a bowl vs pick up a glass)
- An inability to generalize between 'similar' sensory inputs.
- Causing damage to itself or its environment.
These would be things that make a robot look 'stupid' to a non-roboticist. If you're curious I want to have this list so I can then prepare a clear answer ready for people who don't know why these various things are hard.
