Mr Einstein – a very clever robot

11 Jul


These robot dudes are incredible, and nice touch with the Einstein vibe.

In this instance, Einstein is a  robot which has taught itself to smile, frown, and make other human facial expressions. It’s all done using machine learning.


Whilst previously researchers used to have to program the robot,  computer scientists from the Machine Perception Laboratory at the University of California (San Diego) have used machine learning to enable the robot to learn expressions on its own. Part of this involved sticking Einstein in front of a mirror but of course it is a lot more complicated than that, scientists & geeks click here for a full explanation.
