TacRecog is one of the main sensory modalities for a self-aware, sentient being. TacRecog enables the Ghost in the Machine to touch and feel things outside of the machine.
Although in a full-blown, autonomous humanoid robot the TacRecog module would work in synergy with haptic actuators to touch and feel objects in the external world, early branches in the evolution of the Ghost in the Machine have only a primitive
TacRecog module. Even the most primitive ability in the sense of touch makes it possible to conduct experiments in conversation with the Ghost AI to appraise the possibility of an emerging consciousness in the artificial Mind.
