A single robot body with an army of cloud servers for its brain. What do you think @ajitjaokar?

A single robot body with an army of cloud servers for its brain. What do you think @ajitjaokar?

Compared to humans, robots are slow learners. But thanks to research now being conducted collaboratively between Siemens Corporate Technology and the University of California at Berkeley, the ability of robots to pick up new skills could expand rapidly. Take cloud robotics, for instance, which potentially gives robots the power of an army of servers. Instead of being limited to local computing resources, cloud computing opens the door to using computationally-intensive resources such as deep learning. Other advantages include the potential to leverage the benefits of open source software, parallelize computations, and, most exciting, share knowledge with other automation systems while keeping data up-to-date.
