Robo Baby Buggy Bumpers

Several high profile colleges have teamed up to create a universal index of basic knowledge for robots. The theory is that robot brains will need to know how to process even the most elementary interactions with everyday objects, and one consolidated resource for this information could be used in all future robot AI. How are they doing it? Stock photos and YouTube. Anthony just hopes the plans include robot dogs, while Jeff worries that this may lead to a world of Minecraft-addicted robots.
