"This robot can think, learn and act by itself using artificial intelligence. It is being developed by the Hasegawa Group at the Tokyo Institute of Technology.Using a technology called a self-replicating neural network, or SOINN(Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network), it can think as humans do when taking on tasks that it has never done before. It can make educated guesses and decisions based on it's past experiences and knowledge."
Well, I guess this baby is, more or less, in response to Michio Kaku in the video I posted the other day. It can be found, along with a number of other interesting "gadgets" at Diginfo TV.
