The robot arrived at the University of Edinburgh, where The Centre for Robotics will "teach" and improve its skills in preparaiton for its mission to Mars.
Using a specialized IQ test, researchers examined the "general intelligence" of border collies. Since dogs and people have a lot in common, researchers suggest their findings could lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of human disorders, such as dementia.

Giant dinosaur footprints have surfaced along the Isle of Skye, suggesting long-necked sauropods once stomped across prehistoric Scotland.
Using a recently unearthed 90 million-year-old fossilized reptile skull, researchers reveal new insight regarding how snakes lost their limbs. It turns out the evolutionary characteristic of burrowing plays a key role.
When an asteroid impacted Earth 66 million years ago, many species, including dinosaurs, faced extinction. But a furry beaver-like species actually survived and became top dog in the newly available environment.
The six-month eruption of an Iceland volcano in 2014 and 2015 emitted huge amounts of toxic sulphur dioxide gas. Researchers are looking at the effects of such eruptions on U.K. air quality.
