Submission + - Robot Internet/Hive Mind Under Development (bbc.co.uk) 1

mantis2009 writes: The BBC describes a project underway at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology that envisions an online, Wiki-like database to "let robots share and store what they discover about the world." Ideally, the project, named "RoboEarth," would give robots the ability to learn from one another in robust ways, significantly decreasing the time it takes for robots to learn how to perform tasks. The article quotes from researcher Dr. Markus Waibel, who says that a main goal of RoboEarth is to promote standardization for roboticists. "The key is allowing robots to share knowledge," said Dr. Waibel. "That's really new."
