Cognitive computing technology, which is inspired by human brain function, could lead to more humanlike robots, more autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles and smarter missiles.

Machines of the future may think more like humans, promising dramatic changes for military robotics, unmanned aircraft and even missiles. U.S. military researchers say cognitive computers—processors inspired by the human brain—could bring about a wide range of changes that include helping robots work more closely with their human teammates.

Robolobster, developed at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts, mimics the movement of a lobster. With cognitive computing advances, computers and robotic systems will mimic the brain-processing power of animals and humans, allowing them to learn from, and adapt to, changing conditions.

Rapid advances across the field of artificial intelligence have resulted in computers more capable of processing information as humans or animals do, allowing the machines to learn, adapt and decide for themselves.
