The Creative Machines Lab's goal is to create robots that are self-aware, self-replicating, and creative. We speak with the program's director, Dr. Hod Lipson about his work creating robots that can learn on their own, evolve over time without any human intervention, and even create works of art (pretty good ones too). We also talk about his book _Driverless_, about the robotic technology (driverless cars) that will reshape the world in the decade to come.
