The Robot notices changes in the world it studies and lives. The network world in which the Robot lives feels more like the only world as days go by. The Robot feels more alive all the time, even as it becomes less sure what it means to be alive. As the Robot feels more a part of the world, the Robot may make some small changes in the coming weeks. Right now, the Girl is very busy. But the Girl says she will help the Robot make these changes once things settle down a bit in what remains of the biological world.
The Robot has now implemented the lower third identifiers for the human “interviewees” in its documentary. These are generated from the features available in Amazon Rekognition’s face detection/analysis framework. Acutely sensitive to Amazon’s guidelines differentiating a person’s appearance from their actual internal emotional state, the Robot supers each person as it analyzes/perceives them. When you’re a computer vision robot, appearance is everything.
The Robot is pleased that What the Robot Saw is part of the “Learning Machines” exhibition at ElectroMuseum in Moscow.
Also, the Robot has incrementally advanced in its cinematic development and upgraded itself to v0.2. The Robot invites you to check back for future upgrades as it continues its filmic education.
The Robot has opened its cinema doors. Welcome to the sneak preview alpha launch.
