QBO Robot in front of a mirror ( UPDATED )

Blog Updated with technical info. http://thecorpora.com/blog/
This video corresponds to a small experiment in which we put Qbo in front of the mirror to see if he can learn to recognize himself. For that, we used the “Object Recognition” mode and the “Face Recognition” mode. Qbo, using its stereoscopic vision, selects his image in the mirror and, with the help of one of the engineers, learns how to recognize himself. This quite simple experiment touches interesting psychological aspects of self-consciousness, whose complexity can be proved by the fact I already mentioned of the few species that can recognize themselves in front of the mirror. In this first version, a human guide presents Qbo to himself, but we are working so as the robot could present and self-recognize himself autonomously when found in front of the mirror.

    @MacGyvr It’s extremely hard to get things like that for somebody learning the language and it’s not simple. It’s a terrible language. Where else would you hear the word “what” used in that context??
