Robots, intelligence and Cambrian life forms

This is a bookmark to a very interesting report by Jo Pavlus in BBC Future (29 June 2012) concerning artificial intelligence and the future of robotics.


When looking at Cambrian life forms one can hardly avoid a comparison to modern efforts to create intelligently moving robots that sense the environment and make decisions on the basis of this information.

The FuRo futuristic robot Halluc II myBlog is an actual example of a modern robot moving in a manner that was inspired by a Cambrian life proto-type, so to say.
