A laboratory robot called Adam has been hailed as the first machine in history to have discovered new scientific knowledge independently of its human creators.

Adam formed a hypothesis on the genetics of bakers’ yeast and carried out experiments to test its predictions, without intervention from its makers at Aberystwyth University.

T5 here we come!

A human created robot goes on a wild rampage creating agar jars of yeast extracts which turn in to marauding loaves of bread.

Da na na na Da na na na (thats twilight zone music in case you were wondering).

Interesting article ... I like this comment “Eve is better designed and more elegant.” hopefully they won't have a domestic while working together now THAT would be AI. :smt001
Belief gets in the way of learning.

As long as Adam and Eve don't discover Apple we'll all be ok. :smt005

Actually Human created Robot for the easy way of their work and can support in some work but at the same time I thing after some years Robot will rule on us. So technology can do anything. For further information I would like to recommend to see the i-Robot movie.
