At Misty, we talk a lot about giving our robots personality, about making them not just functional, but fun! But what does robot personality mean?
We think that it means more than just pre-scripted interactions and repetitive animations. We think it means more than a few funny answers to particular questions. We think it means more than a collection of shallow changes like name, gender, or screen color.
Instead, we think of robot personality as something that makes each robot individually unique. That ties together disparate skills, written by a variety of programmers into a coherent whole. That makes this robot, yours.
Check out our recent paper on developing an infinite personality space for robots (https://buff.ly/2ALupfR) and share with us what robot personality means to you.
