Scientists Merged Robots with Embryonic Cells to Make Living Robots that Can Reproduce--


Scientists at the University of Vermont, Tufts University, and Harvard have revealed that the first-ever Artificial Intelligence (AI) designed living robots, Xenobots, that can reproduce themselves in an entirely new process of biological propagation. In 2020, Xenobots were created from embryonic cells of the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis), and with the aid of artificial intelligence, the tiny computer-designed organisms can travel, gather cells (loose stem cells) and assemble their own Xenobots inside themselves. The new Xenobots look and behave just like their 'parent' and can also replicate themselves, ad infinitum. The scientists are already scheming to use the organisms in the lucrative field of medicine and vaccines, never mind the risks.
