Washington: Two Indian-origin researchers have created a large computational system known as `Robo Brain`.

The computational system extracts information available on the internet that will help robots to gain knowledge on human behaviour, language and mannerism.
"Our laptops and cell phones have access to all the information we want. If a robot encounters a situation it has not seen before, it can query Robo Brain in the cloud," explained lead researcher Ashutosh Saxena, an assistant professor of computer science at Cornell University in New York.

Robo Brain will make it possible for a robot to perform any action by connecting images with videos and texts to identify objects that it is dealing with.
For example, if a robot sees a coffee mug then his `Robo Brain` will run the image, connect it with the object in front of its eyes, inform it of what it is and how it is used.

"The Robo Brain will look like a gigantic, branching graph with abilities for multi-dimensional queries," said Aditya Jami, a visiting researcher at Cornell, who designed the large-scale database for the brain.
