Videos

1. "Grounded Situation Models: Where words and percepts meet ": Starring Ripley the Robot and Nikolaos Mavridis (DSL) (modem)

2. "Face detection": Starring Ripley the Robot and Nikolaos Mavridis (DSL) (modem)

3. "Perspective Shifting": Starring Ripley the Robot and Peter Gorniak (Peter had developed "bishop", an outphased grounded language parser that in this demo was connected to my early mental model - now the parser has been deemed obsolete given my new GSM design) (DSL) (modem)

4. "Mental Model": Starring Ripley the Robot and Kai-yuh Hsiao (Kai-yuh has been responsible for Ripley's motor control system, while I have developed the GSM, vision etc.) (DSL) (modem)

5. "Motion Training": Starring Ripley the Robot and Kai-yuh Hsiao (Kai-yuh has been responsible for Ripley's motor control system shown in this demo) (DSL) (modem)

Also, from time to time I have written very quick and sketchy drafts on a variety of other subjects, including grounding and ontologies, species of shapes and how they naturally arise, cognitive science experiments that shouldn't be done but would be highly beneficial etc. (the "unethical experiment proposals" paper wasn't my personal choice - it was actually a requirement for everyone taking the CogSci core class at MIT BCS ;-) ). Just email me at nmav@mit.edu for further details.
