Amazing.  Terminator images were flashing through my mind.  Luckily, I don't think that thing will fit through my front door.

Dangit! I had a 2 foot tall box that I could stand on during the robot apocalypse all ready got but I guess it is back to the drawing board.

Rednecks will be safe in their homes. The porch will collapse when that thing jumps on it.

That's just the alpha 7 version. Beta versions will come with jetpacks to handle such things.

For all you people wishing battery technology would improve, just remember that crappy batteries are the only thing keeping this thing from escaping from the lab and running your down

"It's nothing," tweeted Musk. "In a few years, this robot will move so fast that you will need light to see it ... Sweet Dreams ..."

He followed up the response using this comment:
''We need to regulate AI/robotics as we do with food, drugs, planes and cars, public risks require public control, the release of the FAA will not fly safer, they are for a good reason. "

Musk has already warned of a threat of possible robots that would develop beyond the possibilities of humanity to control them. His views are shared by visionaries like Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates.

I wonder when they will be cheap enough to play Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots.

But what I really wonder is how specific/low-level the programming is. Like getting them to stand on one foot and high kick/step with the other. Is that, say, a standard library plus three instructions, or 10,000 lines of code? Or do they just show them some American Bandstand archival footage and their onboard AI learns the steps?

That would be cool.

I'd be very impressed if the AI could learn to play drums to that song like Dave Clark from the Dave Clark Five just by watching.

Probably. Interesting question. I found these articles with a link to the code used:

Making a robot learn how to move ó Intro

The dynamical model of a robot, i.e. the mathematical model describing how inputs affect the movement of each joints, can be very complex, especially when dealing with robots with many Degrees of Freedom (DOFs). Links are often dynamically coupled: the movement, velocity and acceleration of a link affects the other in complex ways. There are inertia effects, centrifugal, Coriolis and gravitational effects, non-linear frictions and so on. All of these can be hard to model mathematically. So, the question is: can the robot learn how to move? In the next series of posts, I will show different approaches, techniques and algorithms that Iíve developed along with a colleague of mine. You can find all the code developed for this project in this GitHub repository.

>> Evolutionary algorithms

Ahh.... That makes sense. My AI comment was a joke (though I think it will come), but it also boggled my mind how one would write the code for that. Looking at his other posts (lots about neural computing and deep learning), it looks like it's partway in between. It's not twentieth-century coding a standard robot movement library in C and then adding in dance classes (so to speak), but it's not... 2050s AI. It's sort of in between. A lot of programming + a bit of deep learning = robot that can stand on one foot and high kick
