BBC documentary chronicles latest research on making robots think

YouTuber "JDOCUSReloaded" has posted the BBC documentary The Hunt for AI, a 60-minute look at the latest developments on creating machines that can think like humans. Marcus Du Sautoy hosts the documentary, taking us on a journey from last year's "Jeopardy" contest between IBM's Watson supercomputer and two human opponents, to the latest robots that can react to the environment around them (including humans). It's well worth your time if you have an hour to spend watching:
