Rodney Brooks. Portrait of Rodney Brooks with "Cog", an android robot he developed. This robot is part of artificial intelligence research to learn how the organisation of intelligence is influenced by having a body. The robot can also be used to study how humans learn through interactions with other people. It is designed to closely resemble a human in terms of size and movement speeds so that people will naturally act towards it in a human-like way. Rodney Brooks is Associate Director of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and is joint leader of the team that designed Cog.
