Humanoid Robots: A New Kind of Tool
In 1993 our group at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory began a humanoid robotics project aimed at constructing a robot for use in exploring theories of human intelligence. 1 2 In this article, we will describe three aspects of our research methodology that distinguish our work from other humanoid projects. First, our humanoid robots are designed to act autonomously and safely in natural workspaces with people. Second, our robots are designed to interact socially with people by exploiting natural human social cues. Third, we believe that robotics offers a unique tool for testing models of human intelligence drawn from developmental psychology and cognitive science. Keywords Humanoid, robotics, autonomous, embodied, social, attention, imitation. IEEE Intelligent Systems
