“Asimo – Artificial intelligence for the everyday

asimo.gifAsimo.gifIm year 2050 should be human-robot on two legs after the official FIFA rules against the then incumbent, human soccer World Cup play – and win. The experts have at least the robot development at the flags. At the University of Bielefeld was recently the new Research Institute for Cognitive and robotics (Cur-Lab) cor-lab. into operation. In addition, a research cooperation between the University and the Honda Research Institute Europe GmbH honda-ri signed, the university and basic industrial research unite. The robots will be with cognitive and social skills, and to assistants for the everyday man. Star guest at the opening was http://www.honda-robots.com Asimo, a robot from Honda menschenahnlicher. About 20 years after the presentation of the first Asimo model presents the latest generation significantly developed. “In the racing circuit, the hand shake and push a cart include the wearing of tablets to his new repertoire,” reported the Berliner Zeitung. Using an infrared transmitter Asimo can now even have a ball and recognize wegkicken. The Bielefeld University is the first in Europe, this humanoid robots for research purposes receives. In the context of cooperation Honda sets even parts of the previously well-kept control software of the machine.
At this conference Bonner Voice Days http://www.voicedays.de presents the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) http://www.dfki.de the Ligabot. The anthropomorphic agent makes it possible to have a voice system-date information on scores, venues, and next encounters the table situation of the current season to ask. For the interaction with the users in this example, a virtual domain football expert, the issues of visitor with an artificial voice and facial expressions and gestures appropriate answers. For Gerhard Sagerer, director and one of the founding fathers of Cor-Labs, is the understanding between man and machine is one of the key issues in robot research: “We want to build robots, which often lack the uniqueness of human communication handle them. This means that they are not very clear verbal instructions and spirit can interpret gestures. “Objective is that the machine impasse the people and not vice versa. This is also the Berlin company Semantic Edge http://www.semanticedge.de so. In voice systems was also a clear link between so-called human-touch dialogues, which the human speaking very close and the acceptance of the system. “We do not want a rigid control dialogues in which you only use certain terms, but free speech,” Lupo says Pape, managing director of Semantic Edge. In a dialogue with human trains, the caller will feel more accepted than in a menu with rigid management and retrieval of specific answers, Pape. The goal of voice is to the expectations of the people as close as possible. “Software systems must be intelligent, so they better understand what the man they want and they reversed the people easier to understand,” calls Pape.
According to Axel Schnell, Chief Operating Officer of the ICT system integrator Nectarine http://www.nextiraone.de, the AI research in Germany on the right track: “Instead of calculating machines with a human awareness designed to focus on our scientists useful tools for computer science and cooperate very closely with the economy. “worked particularly well in the analysis of natural language. “With approximately 120 companies, the dialogue systems for navigation equipment, ticket vending machines, logistics systems or dictation and develop marketable, we are at the forefront internationally. This pragmatic approach to AI research is vital for the everyday technology, “says Schnell.
