Robot Arm Built with Sole Purpose of Finding Wally

In the future when you’re going through a particularly challenging page of Where’s Wally, an easy solution could be possible.

A robot with the one and only purpose of picking out the intangible Wally’s face in a crowd has been built.

Designed by creative agency Redpepper the robot uses artificial intelligence software to identify Wally in a crowd of other fictional faces and then uses a robotic arm to point him out.

Matt Reed, the creative technologist at Redpepper, told The Verge: “I got all of the Waldo training images from Google Image Search; 62 distinct Waldo heads and 45 Waldo heads plus body.

“I thought that wouldn’t be enough data to build a strong model but it gives surprisingly good predictions on Waldos that weren’t in the original training set.”
