Title:iCub Tries to Play the Keyboard
Author(s):Chang, Peixin
Contributor(s):Levinson, Stephen E.
Subject(s):Humanoid robot
Abstract:Can a robot understand natural language? This thesis describes and discusses the first stage of a project that tries to help answer this question using the approach of music performance. One of the most demanding cognitive challenges for a human mind is music performing which is closely related to language acquisition. The first stage of the project aims at exploring the potential of an iCub humanoid robot, the platform used in this project, to play an electrical keyboard. The robot is expected to analyze the electrical keyboard with its visual ability, listen to a sequence of musical notes a human played on the keyboard, and perform the same musical notes in the same order on the keyboard. The three modules built in this project will be introduced and discussed, and the next stage of the project will be revealed.
