Subushie:... what use would we have with a robot that can learn and imagine? lets leave that part to the humans thanks."
What use a learning/imagining robot has? If we had a robot that does shopping for its owner, and suddenly some disaster strikes and the shop collapses, the robot could be given instructions by anyone to go dig up those buried under the rubble. As it digs up the first few survivors, it learns that he can use the sound people under the rubble make to find them more quickly, then it imagines/wonders... how could I do this even faster? and it decides that calling for other robots in the area is the best action. The learning robot saved lives, while the fixed state robot is still looking for the peas.

Oh boy... Im probably gonna end up working on something similar someday, and end mankind. Maybe we should like... simulate how these things would act when they are really becoming intelligent before handing them knifes, guns, hands n such.
