Columbia University Engineer, in New York, has come to robotic inventions to be able to invent mechanical armor, although it does not work properly. Professor Hod Lipson, the Creative Machines Laboratory, where he undertook research, considered a robotic arm as a "newborn child" that suited his environment and learned things. Scientists say it's the first time that the robot has "imagined" and the ability to work its purpose to operate without importing mechanics. In a study published in Science Robotics, Prof. Lipson said: "This is perhaps what a baby's newborn does.
"We inform that this advantage is also the origin of human self-awareness.
"If we consider the ability of our robot to imagine itself still raw to humans, we believe that this ability is to curb our own conscience."
The mechanical arm did not know about physics, geometry or dynamics.
Although they were randomly moving within 35 hours, the mechanism learned about intensive knowledge of computer science and represented their abilities.
Shortly afterwards, the mechanical arm was able to build its biomechanics to clear and drop objects.
The robot also performed some other tasks, for example, writing using the marker.
Researchers have printed a 3D-deformed section to simulate a damaged portion, the robot was able to detect defects and adapt the mechanics.
He could detect the damage that his arms could have and restore his system to continue working.
The authors warned: "Self consciousness will bring elastic and adaptable systems, but also loss of control.
"Technology is powerful, but it should be careful".
However, some scientists have said robots never have their minds as a human being.
Speaking at Literal Arts and Arts Festival, Professor of Computer Science at Oxford University, Nigel Shadbolt, said: "Does AI threaten mankind? It definitely represents everything that you see in Hollywood in this way. You know, basically you do not want to get closer to that.
"But this is not misunderstood where there is a real problem. It is not artificially intelligent, it is terrifying, it's natural stupidity."
