Scientific research agency A*STAR recently put together a software featuring series of engineered brain cell prototypes that can be used in robotic functions. This technology will most likely revolutionize the robotic community as we know it offering a much more humanistic development to occur in the engineering of androids.

The software is designed to simulate the look and function of the human brain using grid as well as place cells. The cells are able to understand information about locations and understand where the body is in space. This same human function can now be used in the mind of robots allowing them to have a better understanding of the concept of space and location. The software can also potentially help with breakthroughs while studying the human cerebrum.
