Robot Overlord 1.0

PopSci has interesting article on a prototype "Teamworkbot". The goal of this project is to develop bots that can "know how to read their partner's actions and intentions and to predict what he or she will do next as they complete tasks together." 

Seeing the video however, it seems painfully obvious that the robot just intends to train its human slave. The guy in the demo isn't improving the robot's opinion of the human race either.
