Intelligent Enough To Blog?
The announcement last week that a robot had been created that demonstrated self-awareness created a flurry of news articles and press coverage. But what about a robot that's so intelligent that it keeps its own blog complete with very creative photos of its travels?
Pedro, a Sony Aibo robot dog, started keeping his own blog in early November. He posts to it regularly, and includes some interesting interior photos and cute photo frames with almost every post. He also documents his total number of running days, run times, distance traveled, and has indicators for his face, ball, and bone.
Of course, some skeptical readers might suggest that Manuel, Pedro's owner, is also his ghost writer - but Manuel totally rejects that suggestion. As he states in a disclaimer on the blog-
"Pedro is the sole author of these posts and I accept no responsibility for them!"
