New network-based humanoid

Researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology claim to have fathered the world’s smartest robot able to think and learn like a human.

It can become wiser through learning because unlike other robots (namely Hubo and Asimo), this one is wirelessly connected to an outside computer, exchanging information with the server and responding quickly to its environments. “Separating the brain and the body gives the opportunity to input various functions,” explains professor You Bum-jae.


Through its visual and force sensors, the still-unamed robot detects movements, recognize its master’s voice, then sends the data to the server and receives directions allowing it to interact with people and the environment.

“This robot could be used in the future as an assistant at home and offices who is highly intelligent and always ready to serve you.”
