Kismet robot. View of Kismet, a robot which respo- nds with facial expressions to actions, showing surprise. Kismet has been developed for the study of action recognition and learning. Kismet has several "moods" which it can display. Surprise is shown by an open mouth, wide eyes and raised eyebrows and ears. Researchers use movements (waving hands and moving toys) as visual stimuli. Kismet responds like a baby. When there are no stimuli, it has a sad face. During play, Kismet looks calm and happy. Over-stimulation causes distress. Kismet has been developed by professor Rodney Brooks and Cynthia Breazeal at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, MIT, USA.
