2/25/2010 1 Lecture Notes: Carnegie Mellon's Hans Moravec has mapped out a future well into the new century, drawing a strong parallel between robot intelligence (measured by computer processing power) and biological intelligence Lecture Notes: Moravec draws on the idea of a Universal Turing Machine to propose the idea of a Universal Robot, i.e., one which could be used to perform any humanly (physically?) performable task. The contrast here is with robots that are designed to perform only a very narrow range of tasks. Moravec thinks we are on the road to making such machines suggesting that robots that can reason as well or better than humans will exist by about 2040. Lecture Notes: Turing Machine , a machine that could be used to perform a finite mathematical operation

2/25/2010 2 Lecture Notes: Zero Generation Universal Robots: now - 2010 MIPS Between now and around 2015, Moravec envisions machines that will evolve far beyond Roomba. A more advanced vacuum cleaner will schedule and predetermine cleaning routes and empty its own dust bags. Lecture Notes: First-Generation Universal Robots: 2010 - 3,000 MIPS By 2020, machines will be first-generation "universal robots" that could prepare an egg, put out the dishes and clean the table. At this stage, robots execute applications with "reptilian inflexibility." But, unable to deal with unexpected contingencies. Lecture Notes: Second-Generation Universal Robots: 2020 - 100,000 MIPS Robots would possess cognitive abilities: "Instead of having a program that says 'do this, do this and do this,' it says 'do this or this, or this or this.'
