"Physical Intelligence" - DARPA Constructs Robots With "Real" Brain

We might soon hear a new generation of robots say they will act and think just like humans.

The ambitious goal of DARPA's project "physical intelligence" is to create robots that are controlled by a living brain!

We have previously seen that it is possible to create robots that are self-aware.

Now, the Department of Defense is reportedly almost finished building robots with "real" brains.

According to National Defense Magazine the "physical intelligence" program is a research and development initiative launched back in 2009 in order to "to understand intelligence as a physical phenomenon and to make the first demonstration of the principle in electronic and chemical systems."

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.

May be these guys at DARPA are in need of a real brain?

They could sell them to politicians too.

Why yes they could.

CTRL-ALT-DEL and reload to recover from unexplained problems.

How many 'missing people' or 'dead military personnel' have/ or will be 'utilised' in this little experiment? 

TO MANY IN MY OPINION! I have often wondered why the television show Outer Realm was removed! Look it up it shows what happens to the ones that disappear.
