Latest Invention: Robot that Thinks and Acts Like Humans


A team of researchers and engineers from Hasegawa Group at the Tokyo Institute of Technology managed to come up with a robot that that can think, learn and act like humans.

The machine, which uses a technology called SOINN (Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network) along with self-replicating neural network, makes use of artificial intelligence along with past experience to think like us.

It is able to make guesses and choices based on the programmed knowledge it has been equipped with.

It would be interesting to note that previous robots failed to perform certain tasks when tested in an unknown environment but this advanced android is able to adjust itself in an unfamiliar environment.

In addition, it can take help of other robots. In case it is supposed to do things that are not preprogrammed in its memory, the machine connects with fellow robots around the world and transfers information to perform certain tasks.

The robot can also receive information from the Internet. The developers believe that this machine can revolutionize the industry, leading to the appearance of a lot of new androids on the market.
