This is Qbo. It’s a cute little robot on wheels that listens, talks, and now can even recognize itself. Seriously.
In the video (below), you can see Qbo interacting with its technician, who it can immediately recognize as Arturo from his voice using the open-source Julius speech recognition software. It responds to Arturo’s commands, identifies a penguin from an image, turns around, and “learns itself.”
