Engineers have taken a step towards having machines that can operate when damaged by developing a robot that can teach itself to walk, even with a broken leg.

Using "intelligent trial and error", their six-legged robot learned how to walk again in less than 2 minutes.

One step closer to Skynet. Protect John Connor at all costs. :)

A different leap in AI would have been if the other robots decided to shoot the hobbled robot. :)
