A System Is Thought To Be Intelligent If It Can Understand
And Learn, Solve A Problem, Make Its Own Decisions And
Adapt To New Environments.
It can work as a person like cooking , cleaning, recognize
nearby people, understands human gestures and
ASIMO can change both its speed and its directions
smoothly without having to stop where as the conventional
robot had to stop once before changing its direction.
It can make decision in the new environment
It can understand the problem and works accordingly
Plenty of humans already who do not have jobs or
good places to live , then why replace with
Why not keep humanoids, like calculators, merely
as useful gadgetry?
Robots will become super intelligent and rule this
