Quick, send it to the Japanese so they can get one that looks like this! Shocked

Though for some reason I don't want to know what the Proffessor does to that robot though Neutral

So what we're moving towards here is a towel folding, break dancing, female appearing android? I could use me one of those. Hell, if we can teach it to complain, I'll be able to put the missus out to pasture.

I follow the TOP500 most powerful computers in the world and wonder why when there are no amazing AI's when there are the fastest supercomputers that can do around 100,000 GFLOPS. My i5 PC can do 50 GLOPS for rule of thumb.

It's more of a design issue than simple power I suspect.

Yes to do develop some sort of intelligence kernel needs some very smart design. Major problem is that no one knows where to begin in reverse engineering a brain. Though it is not like a conventional silicon CPU that is an extremely fast digital serial processor where the brain is assumed to be a massively parallel analogue system.

There's no assumption about it being massively parallel, we know that for sure.
Now, whether it's digital or analogue, that's debatable, but for practical purposes, you can call it analogue (since there's so many different ways neurons can be "activated", and each neuron is almost like a mini-processor in itself already).

There's up to around 100 bil neurons in the brain, and on average, there are THOUSANDS of synapses per neuron on average, peaking in early childhood at around 10k per neuron on average, with anywhere from 50% to 90% less of them as we age.
The top-of-the-line CPUs of today have between less than 1 bil and less than 2 bil transistors... and needless to say, a transistor is far less complex than a neuron, and has far, far fewer potential connections (that's not even accounting for the different types of neurons, and the types of stimuli which can trigger them).

The fastest supercomputer around couldn't possibly hope to even begin to mimic a human brain in anything approaching real-time, we don't have the necessary hardware capacity... YET.

People at IBM would beg to differ, for starters, but even they say we're at least 10 years (probably much more) away from a working model of a HUMAN brain.

That article about IBM's simulation was very interesting. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it would be much faster to just have the robot find two corners and set to work right away than to take one corner and analyze all the bloody folds from every side.

I'm pretty sure they wont need robots to fold towels after they have eradicated everyone who could use them.
