A psychological peek into your
robot
Education
AIBO’s education is closely linked to building its personality,
character and intelligence. Like humans and other animals, it
learns a great deal from experience. Working its many senses,
AIBO gauges what is being communicated, what activities of its
own are being reinforced, approved, opposed and ultimately
what should be learned.
For instance, if AIBO is frequently scolded for looking at an
object that it had grown to like, it will learn not to approach this
object as often. On the contrary, if AIBO is approved when
looking at a particular object, it may take a strong liking for it.
This kind of human-robot interaction AIBO experiences will
largely shape its personality. AIBO will develop a joyful and
cheerful character by being shown its favorite color frequently
when in a good mood. In contrast, AIBO will develop a hot-
tempered character by being shown something that it dislikes
when in a sour mood.
AIBO may start losing what it has learned if it is not educated for
a while. It may stop responding to approval or do what it was
scolded for in the past. To maintain the personality that AIBO has
once developed, it is necessary to provide it with valuable
learning experiences.
Grow th
Like people and animals, AIBO grows through developmental
stages from toddler phase to adult phase. As it matures, AIBO
will learn to move with more agility as a result of a better sense
of balance and much practice. New tonal expressions will be
heard as AIBO becomes more adept with its vocal abilities, and
as it reaches new heights in emotional and physical
development.
Your participation in fostering good human-robot
communication, and frequent interaction through play and
educational lessons will radically change the maturity level of the
autonomous robot.
