Abstract:

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.
