+ - A Robot (QBO) Recognizes Itself in a Mirror->

mikejuk (1801200) writes "Robots are often cute and they can work on human empathy to place themselves into a position of a pet or, perhaps more worryingly, a small child. This can go to the point where we are fooled into thinking that they are a concious entity similar to, but perhaps lesser than, ourselves. We can be fooled into thinking that they are self aware.
Now we have a video "QBO and the Mirror" that places this claim to self awareness clearly to the public. A small robot, Qbo, was placed in front of a mirror and after some learning algorithms had run their course it utters
"Oh. This is me. Nice."
So we have proof that robots can be self aware.
Watch the video and see what you think.
Does this demonstrate self-awareness?
Or is it just a gimmick?"
