No, this is how you’re going to die

The Hasegawa Group at the Tokyo Institute of Technology is developing a robot that can think and learn. They demonstrate this (extremely bad idea) by asking it to pour a glass of cold water and give it to a human. The technology is called SOINN(Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network) which basically helps the robot make decisions based on previous experience.

So if it decided that the rock it bashed your brain in with wasn’t effective enough it can assess the situation and decide to use a bigger one next time.

“because new situations emerge, it’s also necessary to have the ability to keep learning new information on the spot.”
