The answer? It ‘learns’ what it looks like. The below video shows a Q.bo robot looking at a mirror and observing itself. There is however some debate about how ‘intelligent’ this machine is; it’s clearly just comparing what it witnesses with a knowledge base, if the item is unknown then it’s told what it is a learns it for future reference. Many people feel that this isn’t true AI although is it not how we learn new things? However you feel about this video, it’s still pretty interesting. And no, it’s not made by Aperture Science.
