European scientists have launched a new website that robots will use to share data and ask for assistance in completing a certain project, according to a Wednesday report by BBC News Technology Correspondent Mark Ward.
Ward compares the website, which is being called RoboEarth, to a robotic equivalent of Wikipedia, and says that the project will "let robots share and store what they discover about the world."
"It will be a place that robots can upload data to when they master a task, and ask for help in carrying out new ones," the BBC News reporter added. "Researchers behind it hope it will allow robots to come into service more quickly, armed with a growing library of knowledge about their human masters."
