Boston AI Conference in Images

CNet News has a nice photo gallery with deep captions round-up of events at this week’s jointly held 2006 National Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence, which is taking place this week in Boston.

The caption for this image reads:

“Woofie” is used to teach speech and language impaired preschoolers in New Orleans vocabulary, sequence and memory skills. Woofie makes an animal noise, says the name of the animal, and then asks children to step on the corresponding square. The robot dog responds positively when the answer is correct, and continues the game, adding an additional animal to the list upon each turn.
