Snail Brains Could Make Robots Smarter

The bad news? Killer robots from the future will be able to make complex decisions thanks to snail brains. The good news? They probably won't be able to run fast enough to catch anyone.

"Our findings can help scientists to identify other core neuronal systems which underlie similar decision making processes. This will eventually help us design the ‘brains’ of robots based on the principle of using the fewest possible components necessary to perform complex tasks."
