Episode 2 of Robotic Secrets Revealed demonstrates research on robot perception (including object recognition and multi-modal person identification) and embodied cognition (including theory of mind, or the ability to reason about what others believe). The video features two people interacting with two robots.
Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) scientists won the "Best Educational Video" award at the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence's annual conference in San Francisco on August 8, 2011.
The team that created the video works in NRL's Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence (NCARAI). Team members include Dr. Laura Hiatt, Dr. Anthony Harrison, Dr. Ed Lawson, Dr. Eric Martison and Dr. Greg Trafton. Dr. Hiatt and Dr. Martison are NRL postdocs.
NCARAI is engaged in research and development efforts designed to address the application of artificial intelligence technology and techniques to critical Navy and national problems. Research is directed toward understanding the design and operation of systems capable of improving performance based on experience; efficient and effective interaction with other systems and with humans; sensor-based control of autonomous activity; and the integration of varieties of reasoning as necessary to support complex decision-making.
