Scientific American Frontiers - Robots Alive!: Almost Human (Teaching Guide)
"Robots Alive! Almost Human" explores a project that Rodney Brooks, MIT professor, has been working on for two years. Professor Brooks is attempting to build a robot that will mimic a human being. He has been designing Cog, a robot capable of learning from its experiences the way people do. If Brooks is successful, Cog will become the most advanced robot in existence. The teaching guide provides an activity in which students design and draw a robot to complete a specific task.
