Google Is Training Its Robots to Be More Like Humans

From a Washington Post story by Gerrit De Vynck and Rachel Lerman headlined “Google is training its robots to be more like humans”:

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Researchers here at Google’s lab recently asked a robot to build a burger out of various plastic toy ingredients.

The mechanical arm knew enough to add ketchup after the meat and before the lettuce, but thought the right way to do so was to put the entire bottle inside the burger.
