Caption: Kismet robot. Researcher Cynthia Breazeal inter- acting with Kismet, a robot which responds with facial expressions to her actions. Kismet has been developed for the study of action recognition and learning, particularly that of infants. Kismet has several "moods", which it displays as express- ions on its face. Kismet responds to visual stimuli like a baby. When there are no stimuli, it shows a sad expression. When paid attention to, as here, Kismet looks interested. Too much stimulation causes it to become distressed. Like a child, Kismet responds best to bright colours and moderate movements. Breazeal is a researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Lab, MIT, USA.
