Artificial Intelligence: Kismet the Robot


Alan Turing is seen as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, which is why my group decided to focus on artificial intelligence.  I will specifically focus on Kismet, a robot made at MIT that has many human qualities such as speech detection, speech, emotion / facial expression, and vision. There are many aspects of artificial intelligence such as general intelligence, social intelligence, perception, learning, and planning.  Kismet in particular has social intelligence.

Stereotypes on Campus


My name is Lu Chen, and I am a 4th year Psychobiology student.  I am graduating this year, and am applying to medical school this June.   I chose to take this class because I thought the topic was interesting (I never really thought about art and science together before) and because I wanted to take an art class at UCLA, especially since the last art class I took was in middle school.
