A robot prepared for self-awareness: Expanded software architecture for walking robot Hector

31 marzo 2015

A year ago, researchers showed that their software endowed the walking robot Hector with a simple form of consciousness. Their new research goes one step further: they have now developed a software architecture that could enable Hector to see himself as others see him. «With this, he would have reflexive consciousness,» explains an expert. The architecture is based on artificial neural networks.
