How to Grow a Robot (MIT Press)
Monday, 25 May 2020

In this book, subtitled "Developing Human-Friendly, Social AI", author Mark Lee puts forward the idea that currently most robots aren't very friendly. They vacuum the rug, mow the lawn, dispose of bombs, but they aren't good conversationalists. So how can robots can be more human-like, friendly, and engaging. Lee describes his own experiments with the iCub humanoid robot and its development from newborn helplessness to ability levels equal to a nine-month-old, explaining how the iCub learns from its own experiences.
