Robots are cool, though also a bit worrying. Most are made for very menial, physical tasks. But new robots are getting smarter at doing a range of things. What if they could learn almost anything?

The Robo Brain project aims to harvest information and skills from the internet for other robots to use. That scares me a little. The internet has lots of dark places and nasty content. How will the robots decide which skills are good to learn, and which are not?
