    They’re reading WikiHow to learn how to cook.


    RoboHow, a European research project that began back in February 2012, is attempting to teach humanoid robots how to perform mundane everyday tasks.

    This includes activities performed in living environments, such as cooking, as well as in office environments, such as adding paper to a printer.

    The learning process these robots endure is very similar to what we experience. The PR2, RoboHow’s robot, acquires information from the web, using sources such as WikiHow, and adds to that information by observing human action.

    Although humans seem to instinctively understand certain processes, these robots need to be taught everything from how to hold a spatula to how to flip a pancake, Quartz writes. However, once one robot perfects a specific task, that knowledge is collected in a database for all other RoboHow robots to access.

    Watch researchers teach this robot how to make pancakes:

    With the prospect of $15 an hour workers at fast food places expect a big push in robotic type food prep to keep costs down.

    Larger immediate concern will be what to do with displaced unskilled labor, they will soon be rechristened as "Surplus Population".

    Something like this with a wet/warm input slot would make broads more obsolete than gateway computers.

    And, expect the hardest working and the smartest among us to create, program, maintain and market said robots, the weakest among us to be replaced by said robots and the lefty-est among us to weep for those who are replaced and tax the shit out of those, who throught their own ingenuity and iniative, are responsible for the innovation that replaced the useless.
