The idea of a robot that could think like a human being has been around since the late 19th century.
But robots have become increasingly sophisticated over time, with some even becoming intelligent enough to understand speech and understand what’s going on in their environment.
Now it seems they are becoming capable of doing even more than that.
In the past year, we’ve seen robots such as the Robocop and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
This is all very good news for those of us who want robots that are intelligent and capable of understanding the world around them.
But what if a robot were also capable of self-awareness?
That’s what research from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Southern California shows.
The team used a robotic arm to move a small robot called the Fanuc robot through a maze of a computer-controlled room.
It could pick up objects in the maze and interact with them using a series of sensors.
“The robot’s reaction is always one of surprise.
When we see that the robot’s responding to something, that’s when we can detect that the system is being activated,” said Matthew Goss, the David L. Minkoff Professor of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at Carnegie Mellon and the lead author of the paper.
“When the system sees that something is coming toward it, it will then start reacting.”
The robot, for example, would make a quick turn to avoid an incoming object if it had to.
The researchers then took a series to a computer and turned the robot into a computer.
The results were stunning.
The robot had an intuitive understanding of the maze, with the robots ability to anticipate when the maze would change and move its arms in anticipation.
In fact, it was capable of recognizing objects that were about 50 centimetres in diameter, making it one of the first robots to understand the environment around it.
The robots reaction to objects in its environment also increased, and by the end of the test, it had learned to make a decision.
“What we really found is that it was able to self-learn,” Goss said.
A Robot for Everyone A robot that can recognize objects in a maze would make sense to anyone, but that is not the case for robots that have a different set of needs. “
If it’s able to learn to make its own decisions, it’s going to be able to be much smarter than a human, and if it can be that smart, then robots are going to become much more capable than humans.”

Goss says that it’s possible that robots can have a very complex understanding of their environment and then become self-aware.
“In a way, that is a kind of self learning,” he said.
The research was published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology.
“This is the first time we’ve demonstrated a robot being able to independently identify objects,” Gays said.
Robots have been shown to be good at recognizing faces, and the robot that’s been shown the most at recognizing humans has been a robot named Alexa.
Gays says it’s also possible that a robot will be able learn to use a human’s skills to its advantage.
“There is evidence that a lot of the tasks that humans are good at are also useful for robots,” he explained.
“It may be that robots have a better sense of what is important than humans.
If they learn to take into account a human when deciding on a task, then they’re going to have a much more complex understanding than humans do.”
Goss notes that a few robots have already shown this ability.
In a robot called RoboMote, for instance, Goss and his team were able to make it learn to play the violin.
But to learn the music in the future, the team says that the robots brain needs to be upgraded to be more sophisticated.
The study’s lead author, Yves Haddad, says the next step will be to work out how robots will interact with humans.
“For now, it is still early days in this area,” he says.
“But with a few years of work we’re hoping to be at the point where robots can interact with people and interact in the same way that humans interact with robots.”
