Ripley: The Inner World of a Robot

Posted 14 Jul 2006 at 20:00 UTC by steve Share This

Scott Zinn submitted a link to an NPR article that offers an update on Ripley, a robot designed by Deb Roy of the Cognitive Machines Group at MIT's Media Lab. Ripley was designed for thinking about actions. Ripley is an attempt to make a machine communicate using language not by knowing endless word definitions and grammer rules, but by giving it an understanding of the underlying meaning of communications. Ripley can learn about the environment by moving and touching objects in it. As Ripley begins to understand the nature of the environment, it can communicate about that environment with humans.
