Talk Abstract

Dialogue with Mobile Robots

Johan Bos, HCRC

In this talk I report on a project called Instruction-based Learning
(IBL) for Mobile Robots where a human being is engaged in a (natural)
dialogue with a mobile robot in order to teach it how to navigate in a
certain environment. 

The underlying formalism implemented in the robot enables to perform 
certain inferences wrt to natural language understanding --- using a  
modal logic and off-the-shelf theorem provers. In this talk I would
like to investigate future extensions of this formalism wrt planning
and executing of the instructions given by the human to the robot:
representation, accommodation and interpretation of actions.
