    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    Lol, as fan of robotics, this is the last application for robot I would chose. But for our kids growing up with cheering robots this might be very normal.

    They seem to do some revolutionary things in these fields, however when I checked their stock status something weird came up. In the memo about company you posted it says that Massive Dynamics is worth 50 billion dollars, but their stock price is at 0.03 dollars, and market capitalization at 1.3 million. It means a very small and very risky business.

    Is there something fishy going on with this company?

    I don't think they have anything to do with Boston Dynamic. Recently Boston Dynamics was bought by Google.

    Robot Brain..learns from internet and will be able to answer queries from other robots. I`m not sure about it doing too much research via YouTube however...

    That's really amazing Hope, thanks.

    One of the puzzles, how to program robot to perform many tasks and new tasks, seems to be solved thanks to great depository of Youtube videos of "how to" kind. Later robots themselves can teach other robots via wifi and internet, or go to this mama Robo Brain for info. It is a bit scary scenario, lol, as robots will be linked by sort of common knowledge, not to say consciousness.

    PS. I have to confess I'm frequent user of this Youtube manuals, as I'm a handy many on steroids, lol.

    This includes the ability to recognise chairs, and understand how items such as microwaves and umbrellas are used.
    The researchers say Robo Brain is not just capable of recognising objects, but of understanding how they are used, as well as more complex concepts - including human language and behaviour.
    For example, it can recognise objects such as mugs, and understand what a mug is used for and how it is carried.
    It is also able to recognise when someone is watching television, and knows not to get in the way.
    Ashutosh Saxena, of Cornell University, one of the researchers behind the project, said the idea was to create a huge repository of information that robots could call on to perform tasks around the house or at work.
    "If a robot encounters a situation it hasn't seen before, it can query Robo Brain in the cloud," he said.
    Experts believe robots may be available in homes within 10 years, with robot vacuum cleaners and lawnmowers among the devices already available.
    More humanoid robots, able to assist disabled or elderly people, are now being developed.
    Researchers are increasingly looking to develop central repository stores of information to power these robots.

    I was thinking the same.

    Well I have to agree as a fellow "How to.." YouTube user. I was thinking more about other stuff on YouTube, but of course Robot Brian will probably not be accessing all YT, so no problem.
    Handy man on steroids..that`s definitely going to get you in good books at home...

    This is light industrial robot from a box. Everybody can buy it. It is programmable by showing the robot how you want it to do the job. Could be employed in garage type small business manufacturing. Only 22,000 thousand dollars. Less than cost of equivalent human worker for a year.
