Google Robot Wins Pentagon Challenge

Posted December 29, 2013 at 7:00am

“A robot developed by a Japanese start-up recently acquired by Google is the winner of a two-day competition hosted by the Pentagon’s research unit Darpa,” the BBC reports.

“Darpa said it had been inspired to organise the challenge after it became clear robots were only capable of playing a very limited role in efforts to contain 2011’s Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown in Japan.”
