Look here:

Here's the raw video:

Although as I understand it, the mind copying process is still not detailed enough.

EDIT:

I will just quote one of the developers from the youtube-video-comments:

Timothy Busbice Wrote:We use sound to stimulate chemosensory neurons, specifically the sensory neurons that detect the presence of food. When the sound gets over a certain decibel range, we activate the neurons. Thus the whistling is to signal to the robot that there is food present which usually gets it to move forward. It's fun to see my wife call it because she thinks that calling it makes it come to her but in reality, she is stimulating food senses and it comes to her because it thinks there is food in front of it.

EDIT 2:

Here's another article about this:
