creating robots that look like people, Honda has shifted its focus to ASIMO’s intelligence. Hopefully that’s where more robotics will be focused in the future.
We’re looking forward to seeing more robots like the archer that learned how to aim. We’re seeing more and more examples of artificial intelligence in software and self-teaching computer systems, but no groundbreaking effort has yet combined our AI advances with an equally impressive robot body. What do you think--will robotics research be able to merge the mobility of AMISO with advanced AI anytime soon, or will most of our robots for decades to come look more like Roombas than anything out of sci-fi?
