Robot demonstrates self-awareness

Based on the riddle of the three hats three humanoid robots were programmed to demonstrate if a certain degree of self-awareness is possible. Although with limitations – yes it is!

All Three robots were programmed to think that two of them had been given a “dumbing pill” that prevented them from speaking. All of them were asked “which pill did you receive?”. Two of them were mute, so only one was able to answer: “I don’t know.” It then works out that, as it is able to talk, it did not receive the pill and changes its answer to: “Sorry, I know now. I was able to prove that I was not given a dumbing pill.”
