Teaching language to A.I.

A new project that is about to start in Plymouth University of United Kingdom, the research team is aiming to teach robots the “meaning” of words. Currently the robots can process words without grasping the meaning like humans. The project aims to do this by mimicking the language teaching techniques to a child. In order to interact properly with people, the robot will have a humanlike look, so that people feel more natural about it. The robot will then be able to learn words by special algorithms designed to confirm and verify the meaning of words. The project is supposed to continue for three years and will cost around 190K pounds. For more please click here.
