THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

17 September ~ "I was a spectator at the 2010 RoboCup, the annual competition for robot footballers. The technology used in the competition was recently reviewed in the journal WIREs Cognitive Science. The reviewer commented: 'Football is a useful task for scientists developing robotic artificial intelligence because it requires the robot to perceive its environment, to use its sensors to build a model of that environment and then use that data to reason and take appropriate actions.' He obviously didn't see John Terry and Matthew Upson in action against Germany at the World Cup. Also, I'm not sure that the robot featured on the website should have such a knowing smile – he looks like he's just banged in an own goal to further a Malaysian betting coup."
