Tableminator 3 – Human against machine

It is only a matter of time until the first sporting duels will take place between man and machine. In the near future we will play soccer or tennis against robot teams and not only chess like nowadays.

On March, 11th 2014 one of the best table tennis player of the world, Timo Boll, will play against KUKA KR, a table tennis robot made by the American company Agilus in Shanghai.

Of course, this game is primarily advertising Agilus. But what the heck, it’s interesting to see what the robot can do already. You can watch the duel online here. It is March, 11, at 5 o’clock local time (10 a.m. Central European Time).
