Kawada Industries Hiro Thinks
An associate professor from the Tokyo Insitute of Technology named Osamu Hasegawa has created a thinking robot. Osamu has made the robot think like a human by reacting to the environment and doing research on the internet.
Using the Hiro robot from Kawada Industries as a base and The Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network or SOINN algorithm, Osamu has created a robot that is able to put together different tasks and even make assumptions on how to complete them. Just like us humans, the robot is also connected to the internet to look up stuff it does not know.
In one example the robot was asked to pour a cup of water. The robot takes these instructions apart into things it already knows, like holding a cup, and can then complete the task. Check out the video of this below.
