(Expert in Information Science) Lecture

  • Challenges when communicating with robots using language
  • No problem with verbal interaction alone
  • However, when it comes to real-world actions,
    • There are (almost) infinite correspondences between the real world and the formal world (nouns and objects, verbs and actions, etc.), making it difficult
      • For example, even with the word “touch,” there are various ways to do it (tap, poke, etc.)
    • It depends on the context
  • That’s where Embodied Knowledge becomes important
    • There is also research on robots that have learned to connect language and actions
