Portrait by Robot

(YouTube link)

How cool would it be to have your portrait done by a robot? The robot was designed by Sylvain Calinon, robot researcher at the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory (LASA).
When the robot recognizes a face in its field of view, it first grabs a snapshot of this face and extracts the relevant features and contours characterizing it. The robot then grabs a pen and start drawing the user's portrait, starting from the rough contours and adding details iteratively.

I skimmed the caption and saw the phrase Sylvain Calinon, robot researcher. What my mind saw was Susan Calvin, Robot Researcher.. if you don't understand this, go back and read the Asimov robot stories..
