BBC World Service Radio – Click

We were on BBC World Service Radio’s Click programme last night: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p002w6r2, in a special episode on Robots for Humans, as part of their What If? series.

Unlike some other staged demos we have done in the past, for this one we deployed our current research work directly – algorithm(s) for learning to adapt to the unknown behaviour profile of the human player, work from our AAMAS papers and an upcoming UAI submission. It was a pleasure to see that its performance did genuinely surprise our hosts, Gareth and Bill (a bit more so in a rehearsal when Gareth first tried playing against our robot).

In my next post, I’ll discuss the problem and its context a bit more substantially – getting back into this blog after a bit of a holiday season hiatus!
