'Steve Grand has spent the last three years trying to build an artificially intelligent android. Steve is a self-taught scientist who has deliberately eschewed large public grants and laboratory affiliation to give himself as much freedom as possible to put his revolutionary theories on artificial intelligence to the test. The result is Lucy, still a work in progress yet already one of the most advanced research robots in existence - her successes and failures stand as indicators of the present state of robotics.'
