Interesting Fact:

Robotics researchers are experimenting with new ways of interacting with computers and of adding intelligence to robotic tools for assisting humans at home and for conducting search-and-rescue operations. Research into grid computing, data mining, digital libraries and informatics will combine computing and data resources into systems that are more powerful than the sum of their parts.
