Thinking, Self-Developing Robots

Brainstorm, heralded as the world's first "complete cognitive software system for robots", has been announced by the Institute of Robotics (iRobis) in Scandinavia. Brainstorm is capable of generating control programs for any robot on which it is installed. Built upon a methodology called "genetic programming" (GP) which enables robots to be turned into self-developing, adaptive, problem-solving machines, Brainstorm is the first commercially available system of its type. The next step for iRobis is working with early commercial adopters and researchers to develop prototypes which use Brainstorm.
