    The issue has been overcome, but it's something that doesn't immediately come to mind when developing a driving program. It's like the early AI programs trying to understand written text. Before reading, an basic understanding of the universe must occur. When Abraham Lincold went to Springfield, IL, so
    did his feet. Stuff that we don't think about has to factored in to developin g an AI.

    I think engineers are able to see the problems that need to be overcome in any scenario for an AI through trial and error. We have what's known as machine learning now where a machine will learn and improve from its own experience. I have seen examples of four legged machines losing a leg and, though self discovery, coming up with the optimal method of travelling on three legs without additional programming.

    This simultaneously evokes feelings of both hope and terror.

    Asimo is more or less a puppet compared to Boston Dynamics products. It required an operator which was more like like an experienced puppeteer for it to do things such as walk up or down stairs. Ford Motor Company has a robot similar to the Boston Dynamics offerings that folds up when not in use, kind
    of like the battle Droids in Phantom Menace, and it is designed to ride in the
    back of a delivery truck. I can imagine the truck being automated, and through GPS and QRF bar codes it would know which packages to deliver to each home. Upon delivery it would send a text or email, then jump back into it's self-driving truck and head to the next customer.

    I didn't know about Ford's own droid. I think it's a fairly rudimentary concept at the minute but given another 5-10 years to mature, I could definitely see self driving vehicles coupled with droids carrying out delivery runs. I can also see AI drones being used to deliver smaller parkages in populated cities.

    What a time to be alive... :P
