Designing a Robot with Common Sense

Principal Investigator Leslie Kaelbling

Co-investigators Joshua Tenenbaum , Tomas Lozano-Perez

A robot that can break down high-level tasks and run for weeks without getting stuck is still a long way from being built. But MIT researchers hope to crack the problem by applying what they know about computers and the human brain. They are currently building an experimental infrastructure that will allow computer simulators and eventually, real robots, to perceive and interact with the world around them, and ultimately achieve a semblance of common sense.
