Paper on two experiments with our AI “Spatial Model of Cultural Meaning” published in peer reviewed journal

In autumn 2016 and spring 2017 we did experiments with larger groups of people to test our “Spatial Model of Cultural Meaning.” This is the first prototype of the model. Its realised by means of a machine learning system. The system gets trained, by means of our space-game, that is verbal interaction with a humanoid robot.

In connection to the PETRA 2017 conference (post on conference paper and lecture) we got invited to contribute our research to a call among selected papers by the peer reviewed journal “Technologies.” We used the opportunity to extend the paper presented at the conference with latest results. The paper is published and available online.

The paper’s title is “Experiments with a First Prototype of a Spatial Model of Cultural Meaning through Natural-Language Human-Robot Interaction”
