      Right now we already have a lot of example of “bots” that learn, but these are primarily all “bots” inside computers, with no moving parts. In the coming years I think yeah, we’ll see robots with physically moving parts that learn! Have you seen the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner? It’s mostly programmed to do a specific task, but while exploring your house it learns the shape of your floor!
