Omygawd! This is from a tv show in the UK called Top Gear, which just so happens to be the best show ever!

I for one think this is amazing. People need to stop bitching about technology because it`s not going to go away when no one`s going to put in any effort.

I`ve seen this before but it`s still amazing. I even like how James pronounces it "Mini Coopa" and ASIMO recognizes it should end in "er" instead.

"yay James May"

Jeremy Clarkson ftw. James May is always overly proper. I am jealous of his job though.

-Asheron, it can `think` by itself...that`s the point. It was able to think by itself and discern a table from a chair. While not that complicated yet, it`s still amazing. The first step is always the hardest, true A.I. is a few years away.

We`re not screwed, this is all triggers and still man-made stuff.

When man creates REAL A.I with self-thought process that`s when we should be scared.

It`s an old programme, but I suppose enough time has passed so that the site doesn`t get done for copyright infringement. So fair play.

I wonder if Asimo recognizes the Mini Cooper as both a toy car and a mini cooper? Also, what happens when he runs into a full sized Mini Cooper? Will he recognize it as a Mini Cooper, but NOT a toy car?

Anyway you look at it, it`s damn impressive!

I think we`d better start taking Asimov`s three laws of robotics more seriously.

Isn`t this from James May`s 20th century? Think robotics may have moved on slightly since this tbh- but amazing never the less.

Very basic interpretations, but interpretations nonetheless. That is rather astounding.

As long as we don`t make our creations sentient. Once we do that it`s all over. See: Terminator, The Matrix, iRobot, etc, etc.
