I thought this was about Evangelion. It's 2015, after all.

Unfortunately, I think it will be 2045 before we get that 3.33 we've been promised...

I'd really like to visit the coffee shop though.

Indeed, I would love a coffee shop like that in my own town!

On a serious note I really would not be surprised if that prediction comes true, Considering how far computers have progressed in the last thirty years together with the advent of layered manufacturing... though the thought of a truly intelligent machine is unsettling.

Lets hope they turn out like eve!

Cyberfaust, not saying you're completely off base, but did you even watch the links?

There's intense research going on for at least the last 10 years to build humanoid machines. There is even an international research team called Geminoid Project that takes these humanoid machines in enviroments and studies human machine interaction.

It was not even 20 something years ago that cell phones were just emerging in the market and weighed about 10 pounds due to the huge batteries and electronics.

Go back 30 years and PCs were unheard and processing in the single digit megahertz range was considered academic only.



Bruh phones still need to be charged every 8 hours, and they arent humanoid machines. Believe a "sentient" machine. Far beyond the energy storing we currently have. Our bomb robots still need tethers for power.

at this rate by 2040 we should have prolonged life (Double right now) or immortality or so the experts think.

Science and discoveries are only going faster and faster people like to underestimate how big changes will be and say nah that would take 100 years when it then takes only 10

If you built a highly advanced robot that can have sex with humans, would you call that robot a 'cyborg' or a really expensive vibrator? I've always wondered.

There's plenty of them that don't run on tethers and DARPA announced that Atlas is now totally self-contained with no cables needed.
So, yeah, they will need to be charged like anything else (you see this in Time of Eve as well).

Seriously though, the whole point of this thread is that there are groups of researchers tackling the big picture all in parallel, with some exploring realistic robots, some exploring rugged robots for combat and emergency response, and some exploring robots that learn and can interact with the world like we do.

Check out these little ones taking hotel reservations or playing soccer (football)... sure they're slow and sometimes fall down, but they're tether free, autonomous (programming is done in advance with traditional AI algorithms). You can even buy one and program it for about $8k.

Let's not forget about ASIMO either, completely autonomous, tether free, can run, jump, make you breakfast, etc.
Sure it is trained to do those things (really, though, aren't we all), but that shouldn't detract from what they've accomplished.

If power is the only thing holding those teams back from putting it all together then we're not all that far off.

By the way, the human brain takes about 290 W/hr to do what it does. Looking at ARM's latest offering, the Cortex A72, we can power about 200 2.5 GHz cores full-out for that power budget, coming close to super-computer level of operations per second with today's technology. The scary thing is, the brain is all about parallel execution, not necessarily speed. So, as the number of cores and parallel operations increases, so does our chances of (whether intentional or accidental) creating something that learns well enough to at least emulate what we call intelligence.

I think of all of them, the iCUB has the highest chance of crossing that threshold, even if the target is very young child intelligence.
It's actually open source and open hardware so any research facility in the world can build one of these and do novel things with it.

Hmmmmm I don't think so. The military is always 30 years ahead of civilian technology. So Id say...civilians are about 100 years away from any actual robotic technology that isnt programed to do one specific task. Just look at our militarys robots. They would love to say they have robots that can defend and increase their force projection. Same with china and russia. Wars are going on so I bet more money will go into this, but I doubt its what your fantasing about. You want some irobot shit. The human brain is very complex but not because we can do more than one thing at once, we are actually just one core, a dual core computer can do more things at once than our brain. Thats why its so hard to do certain action, those brain teasers thing.

Reverse it.

Government systems are older than cutting edge systems because of the testing they go through.

Certain organizations would beg to differ...

I was not referring to your common marine or navy seal.

More of the behind the scenes.

Then again, i'll admit i might be wrong. Its just a guess

They look for massive uptime and things like that. NASA used to have (when they launched things into space) people that would go through ebay looking for old outdated hardware to keep their systems going. Hell, last time I was on a modern ship, it was running WinNT4.0 which wasn't close to a modern OS at the time.
