Undreamt of Possibilities

Arthur Pease, Executive Editor, Pictures of the Future | May 16, 2016
Siemens' research laboratories are sprouting spiders that can work together, hands that move like those of humans, and arms that can, without programming, independently determine how to pick up a given object. What these projects have in common - and what we portend for the future - may well turn out to be the most fundamental change ever witnessed in industry: the birth of autonomous machines.

But the ultimate game-changer will be intelligence and the ability of machines to learn from experience. Human beings can intuitively solve many complex problems that have a seemingly endless number of possible solutions. If such problem-solving techniques could be turned into algorithms - as scientists from Siemens and the University of  Klagenfurt in Austria are now attempting to do, artificial intelligence would rise to a new level - and open up undreamt of possibilities.
