Another cool development from the land of the rising sun.

Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has set aside
over 2 billion yen (US$17.4 million) in its 2007 budget to support the
development of intelligent robots that rely on their own decision-making
skills in the workplace. The objective of METI’s robot budget is to support
the development of key artificial intelligence technology for robots over
the next 5 years, with the goal of introducing intelligent robots to the
market by 2015.

Examples of next-generation intelligent robots envisioned by METI include
cleaning robots and security robots that only need to be shown a facility’s blueprints before they get to work. Based on this information, these robots
would make their own decisions about what routes to take as they make
their rounds. The cleaning robot would seek out areas that are particularly
dirty and focus on cleaning those areas, while the security robot would
decide for itself whether or not to report suspicious individuals it encounters
during its patrol.

Pink Tentacle

Very cool development.
I can't wait to see these next generations come on the market.

Comments, Opinions?

It looks like we're in for a cleaning revolution as propagated by the onslaught of the senior citizens. And I thought that technology would just die out like how Apple sort of did in the 1990s. This stuff is so cool and I've kept track of technology on the consumer front through Popular Science and have been absolutely dazzled by the whole idea of a fully networked home for maximum efficiency.

This is quiet interesting to say. Hopefuly should this technology be perfected, we could see as a species the first steps in creating a real AI. Its things like this that keep pushing humanity a step forward
