Caption: Kismet robot. Researcher Cynthia Breazeal holds a mirror to the Kismet android robot which she developed. Kismet has been developed for the study of action recognition and learning, particularly that of infants. It has several "moods", which it displays as expressions on its face. Kismet responds to visual stimuli like a baby. Here it is looking happy because it is receiving pleasing visual stimuli. When there are no stimuli, it shows a sad expression. 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.
