The singularity( Visual )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Singularity is defined as the point in time when computer intelligence exceeds human intelligence...While we cannot be certain of what our future brings, it is nonetheless important to understand the great strides being made in fields such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and molecular biology, and how these technologies will radically alter the way we live, inevitably, the question arises: what kind of humans do we want to become?... The Singularity is a comprehensive and insightful documentary that examines technology's accelerating rate, and deftly addresses the resulting moral questions." -- Container

Sociable machines : expressive social exchange between humans and robots by Cynthia L Breazeal( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sociable humanoid robots are natural and intuitive for people to communicate with and to teach. We present recent advances in building an autonomous humanoid robot, Kismet, that can engage humans in expressive social interaction. We outline a set of design issues and a framework that we have found to be of particular importance for sociable robots. Having a human-in-the-loop places significant social constraints on how the robot aesthetically appears, how its sensors are configured, its quality of movement, and its behavior. Inspired by infant social development, psychology, ethology, and evolutionary perspectives, this work integrates theories and concepts from these diverse viewpoints to enable Kismet to enter into natural and intuitive social interaction with a human caregiver, reminiscent of parent-infant exchanges. Kismet perceives a variety of natural social cues from visual and auditory channels, and delivers social signals to people through gaze direction, facial expression, body posture, and vocalizations. We present the implementation of Kismet's social competencies and evaluate each with respect to: 1) the ability of naive subjects to read and interpret the robot's social cues, 2) the robot's ability to perceive and appropriately respond to naturally offered social cues, 3) the robot's ability to elicit interaction scenarios that afford rich learning potential, and 4) how this produces a rich, flexible, dynamic interaction that is physical, affective, and social. Numerous studies with naive human subjects are described that provide the data upon which we base our evaluations
Alternative Essences of Intelligence( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present a novel methodology for building humanlike artificially intelligent systems. We take as a model the only existing systems which are universally accepted as intelligent: humans. We emphasize building intelligent systems which are not masters of a single domain, but, like humans, are adept at performing a variety of complex tasks in the real world. Using evidence from cognitive science and neuroscience, we suggest four alternative essences of intelligence to those held by classical AI. These are the parallel themes of development, social interaction, embodiment, and integration. Following a methodology based on these themes, we have built a physical humanoid robot. In this paper we present our methodology and the insights it affords for facilitating learning, simplifying the computation underlying rich behavior, and building systems that can scale to more complex tasks in more challenging environments
Challenges in Building Robots that Imitate People( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human (and some other animals) acquire new skills socially through direct tutelage, observational conditioning, goal emulation, imitation, and other methods (Galef, 1988; Hauser, 1996). These social learning skills provide a powerful mechanism for an observer to acquire behaviors and knowledge from a skilled individual (the model). In particular, imitation is an extremely powerful mechanism for social learning which has received a great deal of interest from researchers in the fields of animal behavior and child development
Affective Interaction Between Humans and Robots( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the role of emotive responses in communicative behavior between robots and humans. Done properly, affective communication should be natural and intuitive for people to understand. This implies that the robot's emotive behavior should be life-like. The ability to establish and maintain a rich affective dynamic with people has placed important constraints on our robotic implementation. We present our framework, discuss how these constraints have been addressed, and demonstrate the robot's ability to engage naive human subjects in a compelling and expressive manner
How to Build Robots that Make Friends and Influence People( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To interact socially with a human a robot must convey intentionality, that is, the human must believe that the robot has beliefs, desires, and intentions. The authors have constructed a robot, named "Kismet," that exploits natural human social tendencies to convey intentionality through motor actions and facial expressions. They present results on the integration of perception, attention, motivation, behavior, and motor systems that allow the robot to engage in infant-like interactions with a human caregiver
Active Vision for Sociable Robots( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1991, Ballard described the implications of having a visual system that could actively position the camera coordinates in response to physical stimuli. In humanoid robotic systems, or in any animate vision system that interacts with people, social dynamics provide additional levels of constraint and provide additional opportunities for processing economy. In this paper, we describe an integrated visual-motor system that has been implemented on a humanoid robot to negotiate the robot's physical constraints, the perceptual needs of the robot's behavioral and motivational systems, and the social implications of motor acts
Characterizing and Processing Robot-Directed Speech( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanoid robots are more suited to being generalists rather than specialists. Hence when designing a speech interface, we need to retain that generality. But speech recognition is most successful in strongly circumscribed domains. We examine whether some useful properties of infant directed speech can be evoked by a robot, and how the robot's vocabulary can be adapted

Emotive Qualities in Robot Speech( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the expression of emotion in synthesized speech for an anthropomorphic robot. We have adapted several key emotional correlates of human speech to the robot's speech synthesizer to allow the robot to speak in either an angry, calm, disgusted, fearful, happy, sad, or surprised manner. We have evaluated our approach through acoustic analysis of the speech patterns for each vocal affect and have studied how well human subjects perceive the intended affect
Humanoid Robots: A New Kind of Tool( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1993, the authors began a humanoid robotics project at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory aimed at constructing a robot for use in exploring theories of human intelligence. In this article, the authors describe three aspects of their research methodology that distinguish their work from other humanoid projects. First, their humanoid robots are designed to act autonomously and safely in natural workspaces with people. Second, their robots are designed to interact socially with people by exploiting natural human social cues. Third, they believe that robotics offers a unique tool for testing models of human intelligence drawn from developmental psychology and cognitive science
An Integrated Architecture for Grounded Intelligence in Its Development, Experimental, Environmental, and Social Context( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final report describes a novel biologically-inspired cognitive architecture. The systems level architecture described in this report was inspired by Simmons and Barsalou (2003), with psychologically-inspired additions proposed by Breazeal et al (2005), augmented by key insights from developmental psychology (Smith, 2005). A cognitive agent will have multiple modality-specific systems, including sensory systems (e.g., vision, audition, touch), a motor system, an emotional system, and a cognitive system. As a system perceives its external world and internal mental states, feature systems will represent these experiences in the relevant perceptual modalities, and a hierarchical system of neurally-inspired association areas will capture them, so that they can be reenacted or simulated in the future. These perceptually grounded representations guide the intelligent and social operations of agents
