Robot Proves To Be Worthy Adversary In The Sport Of Curling

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. So is there nothing AI-powered robots can't do? Now they're coming for professional curling. This is the sport featured in the Winter Olympics, with the team sliding heavy stones across ice onto targets.

Curly won three of four rounds against its human competition. You know what they say - first curling, then world domination. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
