Great multimedia article on Bloomberg Business by Jack Clark featuring a lab at Berkeley that is giving robots the opportunity to learn like little humans, "This Preschool is for Robots". The teaser line reads "Want machines to learn the way human toddlers do? You need a “classroom” equipped with Lego blocks and plenty of patience", fascinating stuff for sure. When you think of Battlestar Galactica's Number Six, one can only wonder when the social elements of human preschool might come into play...when do robot 'clicks' start?
