Robots will soon be able to play games and converse says Elon MuskElon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors is often regarded as a high-tech Entrepreneur. Building a new robot for you that can do household chores and will also converse with you,Musk mentioned in one of the blog posts. We’ll always be developing and testing new ideas which are important for our current ideas will not be enough to achieve our long-term goal further mentioned Musk.

Robotics being a good field for testing the new challenges in AI they are diverting a significant amount if their research bandwidth for fundamental research. There is a need of learning algorithm to be made more reliable for the creation of general purpose robot.

Today there are algorithms that can be used for question answering and machine translation but that is not enough for carrying out a conversation with the machine. That is why the OpenAI, an open source AI Company is scheming algorithms that can make a machine worthy of complex conversations. OpenAI was a little older than 2 months company started to handle projects on AI and help other developers.

The OpenAI team is also in the process of creating that AI which can play games. Well, this might not be a very big step in the human world but considering the robotics world, this is going to be a generation gap.
