iCub Robot May Think Like a Human: Lines Between Man and Machine Blur (Video)

What if a robot could act and even feel like a human? Researchers are getting a bit closer to accomplishing that feat. They're working on a robot that feels, sees, thinks and learns like us as the lines between man and machine become a bit more blurry.

The robot is called the iCub robot. Currently, twenty European laboratories have an iCub, which was developed in Italy. In the future, researchers hope to develop the robot enough so that it can learn and think like a human does. Although this may seem farfetched, decades of research into cognitive psychology and the human brain have given researchers knowledge about language, memory, motor skills and perception that could help design such a robot.

"The application of cognition in technical systems should also mean that the robot learns from its experiences and the actions it performs," said Frank van der Velde, one of the researchers, in a news release. "A simple example: a robot that spills too much when pouring a cup of coffee can then learn how it should be done."

In fact, the iCub could have numerous applications. It could help handicapped individuals get around, or even perform everyday tasks.

With the ability to learn, it should be a genius right now.

Sadly this is more hype then truth.

Cool technology but intelligence can not be written in code.
