Submission + - Skynet close to becoming self-aware (bbc.co.uk)

Thorodin writes: "A robot named Nico could soon pass a landmark test — recognising itself in a mirror.

Such self-awareness would represent a step towards the ultimate goal of thinking robots.

Nico, developed by computer scientists at Yale University, will take the test in the coming months.

The ultimate aim is for Nico to use a mirror to interpret objects around it, in the same way as humans use a rear-view mirror to look for cars."
