We've seen in a few headlines now articles about Japanese life-like robots such as Aiko, built by Brampton's Trung Le, a robot that can speak about 13,000 sentences in Japanese and English, do algebra, trig and geometry, and tell the weather in foreign cities, courtesy of Internet links; or HRP-4C, developed in Japan to look like an average Japanese woman with the hopes of using it in the future on catwalks..? Now CB2 is being developed as a child robot that can learn facial expressions and has already taught itself to walk, using 51 air-pressure driven muscles, through observing humans... Perhaps the world imagined in Artificial Intelligence: AI and I, Robot isn't too far off afterall. Kinda creepy!
