I found it again! Been a while since I’d seen it and I forgot his name:
I knew there was a robot that used connectionist and embodied cognition models, encapsulating in artificial form how I suspect humans behave and learn.
The iCub. Here he is: he was doing yoga last week. The self-aware robot has better balance skills than me. I gotta start working on mine: I don’t do yoga, but I can’t have a robot being better than me just yet
