Robot's play

Andrew G. Brooks, Jesse Gray, Guy Hoffman, Andrea Lockerd, Hans Lee, Cynthia Breazeal
2004 Computers in Entertainment  
Our focus is on teaching the robot via playful interaction using natural social gesture and language. We detail this in terms of two broad categories: teaching as play and teaching with play.  ...  We expect that the principal manifestation of the robots' entertainment capabilities will be socially interactive game playing.  ...  We believe that teaching a robot through game-play is a promising approach, and have applied the principle of teaching with play to our expressive humanoid robot.  ...
