I can't believe this has happened already. Could the press be exaggerating? Is the singularity finally near?

It's all over the news now. National Geographic, BBC News...

This is crazy. First cold fusion and now this in one week, I can't handle it.

On a side note, Yahoo's main news story is about M. Vick getting a job and not this! I can't believe how dumb and pathetic our society is becoming.

Who cares about mind controlled robots? You can already control video games with neural sensors.

That's an issue with the rotating report process. I don't know how often it updates, but it's automated. It just reads off a list of top stories.

Cold Fusion?

We can?

I liked processing thoughts more than the capability of developing thoughts.

If it were true, they would have badly chosen the date. You are fools.

eventually when we get so advanced scientists will get so bored they'll have to re-invent things regardless of how ridiculous and impractical it is.

Like square wheels!

There's been a little bit in the news:

cool! and it only costs 154 $14. Apr 25, 2009 KelCatrell It's down to 109.99. and you get a 20$ mail in rebate, making it only 89.99. Not too shabby

A moderate improvement in task automation? Happens all the time. This isn't nearly as impressive as it sounds. It's closer to a manufacturing robot in terms of features with a few nifty differences than it is to a super robot scientist.

Don't let the title fool you. The AI cannot actually think, and there's no reason to think that they ever will at the rate current research is going.
