Einstein robot

By now, you’re no doubt well acquainted with the Albert Hubo Einstein robot developed by the mad scientists at KAIST,
but some researchers at the University of California, San Diego has
also been working on their own Einstein bot for the past little while,
and they’ve now managed to teach it some new tricks. While the bot has
previously been able to display a full range of expressions through
some pre-programmed facial movements, it’s now able to teach itself
how to smile or display other emotions thanks to a new trial-and-error
technique dubbed "body babble." That apparently works by comparing
Einstein’s attempts at an expression with some facial recognition
software, which provides Al with some positive feedback each time he
manages an actual expression. Did we mention there’s a video? Check it
out after the break.
