For some reason I'm thinking Parallax Propeller

Couldn't really argue for it though  :P

i think most hobiest use arduino but they are doing simple stuff.. When you trying to get more into AI, what do ppl use??

Also im not taking something as high as ASIMO that uses a 3d cpu (http://www.digitalworldtokyo.com/index.php/digital_tokyo/articles/honda_creates_3d_cpu_to_power_super_asimo)

But something in between arduino and that 3d cpu... I know that most of the time ppl using arduino have to use interrupts to do multiple things at the same time, but u run out of them really quick...

Look into Parallax Propeller - 8 concurrent processing cores, no interrupts

Nice! Parallax still using ASM or they work on C now?

I think there is no "best" platform for anything, it is a very broad question. What is the purpose of your robot? if requires high power I can think on a combination of low level things and a big cpu like an atom or arm.

In the past I built a robot with arduino and a netbook to do image processing from a camera and it worked OK, but as I said depends a lot on your objective.

Lego mindstorms comes to mind.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.
