Robotic hand that learns from experience

An article following on from the one the other day – though from a different source. This time, work on creating a hand with human-like dexterity as part of a larger project to create robots that interact with the everyday world. Combine this form of inductive learning with the ‘pain’ sensitivity of the other robotic model and you get something that might be more responsive and, in the examples of making coffee in the article, able to react to the heat of the cup when passing it to someone.
