Comments on Robot Walks After Conceptualizing Own Structure
Amazing video shows robot introspecting to determine its own structure, and then constructing a gait for itself. (Read the complete story)

"Wow... That was pretty cool..."

"Especially when you realize what it is doing. The researchers could decide to hook the parts up differently - and it would still be able to 'imagine' or think about itself and determine the best way to move around."

"Good Robot article indeed.Here is a similar kind of a science article specially meant for kids named"

"That. Is. Awesome. I have been working on ideas very similar, with the goal of making a robot to do something like that. To see an implementation of this wriggling about is amazing."

" I'm an expert in artificial intelligence. I am more impressed by this robot than the Asimo robot that walks up and down stairs. This robot learns faster and needs less programming for specific tasks. It is a general physics and pole/joint learning algorithm. If they tried this algorithm on Asimo, Asimo would fall down the stairs, but they could hold Asimo up by ropes until Asimo learned. It would work better. In a small way, this is a little progress toward Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) instead of simply Artificial Intelligence (AI), but it is certainly just an AI at this point. Every AGI is an AI. This is explicitly a physics system, but the important thing is it learns physics isntead of being programmed with physics. Next they should try to get it to use its physics knowledge to learn non-physics things. --Ben F Rayfield"
