Well I can't remember how I came across this, I may have been looking up something to do with artificial intelligence or the singularity, either way I found it. It is a robot that is using an algorithm that gives it the ability to learn new tasks. Yes at the moment it can only learn small things but it also has the ability to communicate to other SOINN robots over the internet and ask it how to do an unknown tasks. If the algorithm/programming is improved upon and it is given better hardware something quiet amazing might be built out of it.
If anyone finds the algorithm on the net in english I think we would all find it interesting.
And here is a link to do with the article and the main site representing the Japanese company making this robot.
