Meet Berenson, a robot critic, complete with a top hat and scarf, who roams the halls of the museum. Berenson, named after the late critic Bernard Berenson, is part of the Musée du quai Branly's new ''Persona: Oddly Human'' exhibition.

Engineer Philippe Gaussier along with anthropologist Denis Vidal, devised Berenson to examine the relationships museum-goers have with the objects on show. Berenson assesses their reactions and facial expressions and portrays his conclusion with either a smile or a frown.

Prométhé, a neural network simulator, reads expressions of visitors as positive or negative. Let's see if Berenson lives up to his namesake!
