DARPA Building Robots with 'Real' Brains
The next frontier for the robotics industry is to build machines that think like humans. Scientists have pursued that elusive goal for decades, and they believe they are now just inches away from the finish line.

A Pentagon-funded team of researchers has constructed a tiny machine that would allow robots to act independently. Unlike traditional artificial intelligence systems that rely on conventional computer programming, this one “looks and ‘thinks’ like a human brain,” said James K. Gimzewski, professor of chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Gimsewski is a member of the team that has been working under sponsorship of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency on a program called “physical intelligence.” This technology could be the secret to making robots that are truly autonomous, Gimzewski said during a conference call hosted by Technolink, a Los Angeles-based industry group.

This project does not use standard robot hardware with integrated circuitry, he said. The device that his team constructed is capable, without being programmed like a traditional robot, of performing actions similar to humans, Gimzewski said.

Participants in this project include Malibu-based HRL (formerly Hughes Research Laborary) and the University of California at Berkeley’s Freeman Laboratory for Nonlinear Neurodynamics. The latter is named after Walter J. Freeman, who has been working for 50 years on a mathematical model of the brain that is based on electroencephalography data. EEG is the recording of electrical activity in the brain.

I'm on mobile so it's difficult to read the whole article but when they say 'real brain' are they referring to a real human brain or an artificial brain similar to ours cause a real brain would require blood circulation and oxygen.

It's artificial but functions similarly to human. It has interconnected nano-scale wires capable of performing billions of synapses.

Re: DARPA Building Robots with 'Real' Brains
This is huge. Few people actually realize the implications here. If this is true then we are creating consciousness. In essence we are creating the conditions necessary for a form of intelligence to learn, develop, protect itself and grow freely. It is not bound by parameters of programming and now, seemingly, it is no longer bound hardware-wise either. A synthetic brain at the nano-level may just be sufficient to allow the spark of consciousness to take seed and create a sentient individuated unit. This is huge.

Ya see, what the ordinary Joe doesn't get, is that the robots won't be out there helping ordinary people with housework....they'll be REPLACING ORDINARY PEOPLE.

TPTB don't need 7 billion people in earth. We can see that now with unemployment levels. They have a certain number of real people in mind that they actually "need" to provide services or sacrifices or whatever for them, and it's probably a relatively small number - definitely under 1--2 billion - probably a lot less than that. If they can get their needs met through technology and robotics than the rest of us are completely superfluous to the ruling class. More than that - we are an obstacle and a danger and a liability.

This is why the pretense of governance and maintaining order and well being has ended....because their technology programs are much further along than they tell us, and they....just don't need us any more to provide plausible coverage for their real activities.

I'm all for robots that are under close human control, and armor suits like iron man. But building something intelligent, and stronger than you, with no emotions is a bad idea. Something like that is a real threat to human existance.
