European scientists have built what they’re calling a “standardised knowledge base for robots,” which is basically just a cloud computing system that any robot can access at any time. Why scientists seem so bound and determined to equip robots for their own uprising is a mystery. It’s called Rapyuta, and the intended goal is for robots to, and we quote, “become more cognitive, and interact with humans in more subtle, ‘human’ ways.” Yeesh.
