Sneaky Robot ‘Cheats’ at Game

It might be time to start designing robotic ethical software — researchers at the Ishikawa Oku Lab at the University of Toyko have designed a robot with sensors fast enough to ‘cheat’ at rock, paper, scissors. The robot manages to process its opponent’s move and make its own so fast that its impossible to tell that it’s cheating — except for the fact that it wins 100% of the time.

While this video is a fun demonstration, it also shows the amazing progress in robotic and machine vision technology. The more advanced the technology can get, the more applications we can discover. What could we do with a robot that can ‘see’ and react faster than humanly possible?

  1. I’m extremely impressed along with your writing skills and
    also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid subject
