Robot That Can Learn, Think And Act By Itself

At the Hasegawa lab of the Tokyo Institute of Technology Japanese scientists have created a robot that can learn based on past experiences. The robot can think, learn and react to situations and teach itself new behaviours in an unsupervised manner.
The Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network (SOINN) robot is described by its developers as “an unsupervised online-learning method, which is capable of incremental learning.”
SOINN learns through its own experiences, as well as through the large network of online information available to each robot model. Developers are now working on creating a robot that can multi-task, solving the problem of overly specialized robots.
