Artificial brains for robots?

Roland Piquepaille writes, "An international team of European researchers has implanted an artificial cerebellum -- the portion of the brain that controls motor functions -- inside a robotic system. This EU-funded project is dubbed SENSOPAC, an acronym for "SENSOrimotor structuring of perception and action for emerging cognition". One of the goals of this project is to design robots able to interact with humans in a natural way. This project, which should be completed at the end of 2009, also wants to produce robots which would act as home-helpers for disabled people, such as persons affected by neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease." For more details on this story, see Roland's blog entry on SENSOPAC.
