Popular Science News | Robots Learn to Talk Like a Baby

Popular Science News – no that doesn’t mean that robots say ga-ga, goo-goo it means they learn as a baby does. In the attached video you can see that the robot is learning colours. At first the robot did not know the names of any colours but by hearing the word associated with each colour it gradually built up a vocabulary which it is now using in a more complex situation.

“At first it’s just noise: a stream of incoherent sounds, burbling away. But, after a few minutes, a fully formed word suddenly emerges: red. Then another: box. In this way, a babbling robot has learned to speak its first real words, just by chatting with a human.” [New Scientist]
