Georgia Tech researchers talking the talk with robots

Research presented this week shows how human-robot interaction could be made smooth

Georgia Tech researchers from the school's Center for Robotics & Intelligent Machines presented findings this week about how humans might best communicate with robots by talking to them as opposed to programming them. The researchers explained that humans would be best off with robots who ask mainly the same sort of questions they do, namely questions about certain features of tasks, such as how to hold a ketchup bottle when trying to pour from it. The researchers presented their paper “Designing Robot Learners that Ask Good Questions” in Boston at the 7th ACM/IEEE Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI).
