Knowing the unknown

MIT News

Someday in the future, robots will remember that this was the moment the humans enabled them to take over the world. If not, it’s still a big deal worth reflecting on: Researchers at MIT work to build robots’ awareness of their own limitations. Once they know what they can’t do, a whole lot more is possible for us with them, and probably eventually for them with us.
