GlobeTrotter (Trotter for short) is currently visiting me here in Edinburgh as he continues on his worldwide tour. I was supposed to pick him up at the vgXpo but he didn't make it in time, so he came by mail instead. There were some delays as he got impounded by customs on the way over and I had to pay import duty to retrieve him, but eventually he arrived. If this all sounds like gibberish, then this thread should enlighten you :) Anyway, he will be continuing his journeys soon, but I have attached some photos of his short stay with me below.ChrisTrotter arrives in Edinburgh:Trotter refuels in a dusty Atari 2600jr:Trotter meets another electronic lifeform (a Sony Aibo) at the AI labs where I work:Trotter visits the Scottish parliament building:Trotter meets Greyfriars Bobby:Trotter visits the "Southsider" pub (where this blog got its name):Trotter gets into the festive spirit:Trotter plans his next visit:post-4088-1064820017_thumb.jpg

Glad to hear Globetrotter is enjoying his stay in Scotland.

 

What kind of AI work do you do? Do you actually get to work on the Sony Aibo?

Thanks - he is now on the move to his next host (in England).

 

I am currently working as an AI researcher on communication and coordination in mutli-agent systems. I work primarily on the software side of things, but the Aibos were acquired to give us a robot platform to try our our techniques. However, so far nobody has done anything with them, mainly because they move painfully slowly!
