I have a good friend who works on developing artificial intelligence, specifically language acquisition. As a result, I had the chance to photograph the only iCub outside of Europe.⌉ The iCub is an open source robot platform, roughly to the scale of a 3.5 year old child. It’s production is a result of the embodied cognition hypothesis. It was a great opportunity to study the machine for weaknesses before it inevitably becomes self-aware and declares war on humanity.
