humans work together, in the hope that it can someday teach robots to
anticipate the actions and intentions of a human partner. "In our
experiments the robot is not observing to learn a task," explains
Wolfram Erlhagen from the University of Minho. "The JAST robots already
know the task, but they observe behavior, map it against the task, and
quickly learn to anticipate [partner actions] or spot errors when the
partner does not follow the correct or expected procedure." This bad
boy has a neural architecture that mimics what happens when two people
interact, and the video below shows the rather melancholy automaton
