Robot that can learn

HOAP-3, a robot made by Fujitsu, can learn new tasks thanks to software created by Sylvain Calinon at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. It can learn by watching someone demonstrate a task or through kinesthetic teaching. It gets better at a task the more times it does it by refining it's movements through self observations. It can even draw portraits of people it recognises. Looks like our days are numbered. For more information and video's of the robot learning check out the link below.
