Students in Marina’s Elementary class enjoyed meeting Kismet – the world’s first social robot – at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Museum today!
They discovered the different emotions this robot can simulate and how human vocal tones and body language can affect how he responds to you. Students also interacted with other works with robotic components.
The MIT Museum was founded in 1971. It hosts unique collections of artificial intelligence, robotics, maritime history, technology-related artworks, holography and, of course, the history of MIT itself.
The museum is about a 25 minute train ride from EC Boston.
