There are plenty of smart humanoid robots that can take on a variety of tasks. It is challenging for humanoids with electric drives to move as fast as humans though. This video from German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence shows how researchers got the RH5 humanoid robot dynamically walking at speeds of 0.43 m/s.
This approach shows that a position controlled robot without full state feedback can walk fairly fast without losing its balance.
