Abstract : The resuls are presented of some researches conducted at the Centro di Cibernetica e di Attivita Linguistiche of the University of Milan in the first half of 1963, in view of the construction of a machine that observes and describes the events of its surroundings and its internal events (''Talking Automation''). In particular the report contains studies concerning: (1) the conceptual difficulties which a program of this type gives rise to; and to which is devoted a critical part and a constructive part; (2) the block diagram of the machine and the scheme of the optical explorer with which the machine is equipped.
