Scientists invent ’self-aware’ robot that operates on its own

Engineers at Columbia University claim to have created a mechanical arm that learnt to perform practical tasks all by itself. The team said this is the first time a robot has shown the ability to ’imagine itself’. The arm, which was programmed with no knowledge of motor dynamics, spent 35 hours moving at random, after which it began successfully performing exercises including picking up objects.

Self aware? Nope... it learned what it was programmed to do, nothing more, nothing less. Kudos to the programmers, but with out them it would be just a hunk of expensive junk.

This isn't new, just the first time I have seen it used on a robot. Google "car evolution flash game" they have been around forever.
