Introducing the 'Seeing Eye Child' Robot Adoption Agency

The 'Seeing Eye Child' Robot Adoption Agency is similar to the 'Tamagotchi' or 'digital pet' gaming phenomena that hit in the mid-1990's and is still going strong. The difference here is that we harness our little cognitive learning machines – AKA FactMiners game players – to 'adopt' a robot (AKA a machine-learning program with some form of vision – image intake and analysis – capability) and help it to learn to see and understand its world. As an adoptive 'Seeing Eye Child', players take on the roles of coach and referee for training sessions where adopted robots learn to see what's in the British Library images.
