That and There: Judging the Intent of Pointing Actions with Robotic Arms [article]

Malihe Alikhani, Baber Khalid, Rahul Shome, Chaitanya Mitash, Kostas Bekris, Matthew Stone
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The evaluation distinguishes two classes of pointing actions that arise in pick-and-place tasks: referential pointing (identifying objects) and locating pointing (identifying locations).  ...  This work proposes a set of interpretive principles for how a robotic arm can use pointing actions to communicate task information to people by extending existing models from the related literature.  ...  Acknowledgments The research presented here is supported by NSF Awards IIS-1526723, IIS-1734492, IIS-1723869 and CCF-1934924. Thanks to the anonymous reviewers for helpful comments.  ...

Conversational robots: An approach to conversation protocol issues that utilizes the paralinguistic information available in a robot-human setting

Tetsunori Kobayashi, Shinya Fujie
2013 Acoustical Science and Technology  
Since all the actions of a conversational robot are explicitly controlled, such robots should be useful for revealing important heretofore unknown conversational functions.  ...  The paralinguistic information involved in prosody and posture expression is used to improve the transparency of the conversational states, especially the protocol, thereby effectively contributing to  ...  The actions naturally taken by the participants in accordance with the physical constraints of the human body and with their mental states are well established, and each action has come to play a special  ...

Robots that Say 'No'. Affective Symbol Grounding and the Case of Intent Interpretations

Frank Forster, Joe Saunders, Chrystopher L. Nehaniv
2017 IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems  
From there they can be picked up and used by the budding language learner which may involve the grounding of these words in the very affective states that triggered them in the first place.  ...  Negation words are prosodically salient within intent interpretations that are triggered by the learner's display of affect.  ...  The good news in this context is that there was no indication that any one of the two coders would have judged the robot's negative speech systematically more felicitous as compared to the other.  ...

There is no Artificial General Intelligence [article]

J. Landgrebe, B. Smith
2019 arXiv   pre-print
This is (1) because there are no traditional explicitly designed mathematical models that could be used as a starting point for creating such programs; and (2) because even the sorts of automated models  ...  We argue that this very ability should be accepted also as a necessary condition of AGI, and we provide a description of the nature of human dialogue in particular and of human language in general against  ...  Acknowledgements For comments on an earlier version of this manuscript we would like to thank Larry Hunter, Prodromos Kolyvakis, Niels Linnemann, Emanuele Martinelli, Robert Michels, Alan Ruttenberg, and  ...

Design and evaluation of a sensory feedback system that provides grasping pressure in a myoelectric hand

Patrick E. Patterson, Judd A. Katz
1992 Journal of rehabilitation research and development  
The present study compared the developed system (pressure) with vibrotactile feedback, vision, and compounds of these three modes.  ...  It was found that the pressure-pressure concept reduced grasping pressure replication errors and error variability.  ...  All subjects had the EMG circuitry affixed to their right arm for controlling the movement of the gripper hand on the end of the MiniMover robotic arm.  ...

Being There: Putting Brain, Body and World Together Again

Tim van Gelder, Andy Clark

We can hold the original ideas steady so that we may judge them, and safely experiment with subtle alterations.  ...  Intentional action is glossed as the carrying out of commands that constitute the output of a cogitative, central system.  ...  (A) A neuron that responded maximally to polar stimuli, particular spirals, and much less hyperbolic and cartesian gratings (modified, with permission, from Gallant et al. 1993 Plate 4 Plate 4 A forceful  ...

What exists in the environment that motivates the emergence, transmission, and sophistication of tool use?

Tetsushi Nonaka
2012 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
AbstractIn his attempt to find cognitive traits that set humans apart from nonhuman primates with respect to tool use, Vaesen overlooks the primacy of the environment toward the use of which behavior evolves  ...  The occurrence of a particular behavior is a result of how that behavior has evolved in a complex and changing environment selected by a unique population.  ...  This is our major point of contention with Vaesen. To be sure, we know of no researcher who claims that there is one and only one trait that distinguishes human and nonhuman cognition.  ...

This Way or That? Par ici ou par là?": Language in the Theme Park

Florian Freitag
2021 Visions in Leisure and Business  
Finally, I focus on (fixed) written signs and conceptualize the theme park as a "linguistic landscape"a concept developed in sociolinguistics that seeks to describe the forms and functions of written language  ...  In both written and oral form, however, language not only constitutes an integral part of the pluri-or multimedial mix that makes the theme park a hybrid, composite, or meta-medium, but also offers visitors  ...  Yet the rest of the text is mainly concerned with technical details about "Piraten," listing the size of the ride building, the overall length of the journey, the number of robots and ride vehicles, and  ...
