There is a segment of the population that is terrified of artificial intelligence.
Critics, like Stephen Hawking, believe the robots can learn to be smarter than humans, and eventually take over the world.
So imagine how terrified everyone’s going to be when they learn of artificial muscles.
That’s right, engineers have finally developed a life like, synthetic muscle that can lift 1000 times its own weight.
“We’ve over one of the final barriers to making life like robots.” – Proffessor Hod Lipson
According to team leader professor Hod Lipson, the long-term plan is to develop artificial intelligence that will also control the artificial muscles.
