Big dog

Darpa_doggie_1My admittedly uninformed perspective is that after the robot arm, progress in the field of robotics slowed greatly.  Fixed location, repetitive movement robots for industrial production worked very well but the problems of autonomy turned out to be much more difficult than had been anticipated.  It appears to me, however, that many roadblocks have fallen in recent years.  The robots are on the move.

    Case in point?  Check out this movie of big dog.  Further info here.

Thanks to Robin Hanson for the pointer.
