Robot Journalist Seeks Scoops, Interviews People, Takes Photographs, Publishes Stories

Intelligent Systems Informatics Lab at Tokyo University has developed a robot that performs basic journalistic functions:

The robot detects changes in its surroundings, decides if they are relevant, and then takes pictures with its on board camera. It can query nearby people for information, and it uses internet searches to further round out its understanding. If something appears newsworthy, the robot will even write a short article and publish it to the web.
