So, Where’s My Robot?

Thoughts on Social Machine Learning

Social Robots live on TV

Some colleagues from MIT, Cory Kidd and Aaron Edsinger, had live demos on Good Morning America this morning. Very impressive. Robots working outside of the lab, and interacting with hosts of a TV show!

They highlighted a couple of the big social robots themes, healthcare and eldercare. A highlight was definitely when Diane Sawyer was moving Domo’s arm around asking if it could “feel” it (compliant and force sensitive manipulators was Aaron’s focus with Domo) …and when she pulled too hard Domo said “ouch.”
