wheeeeeee

dude, my new project is so cool.

so there's this bot on AIM called SmarterChild. You can have semi-coherent conversations with it, and get all sorts of info on news, sports, zip codes, etc. from it. There's an API for building these, and we're getting it in-house and going to be building a few bots of our own.

It's an AI problem and an NLP problem and a data mining problem all rolled into one, and the API is supposed to be very high-level so we can concentrate on the interesting information design and AI parts instead of stupid syntactical/mechanical foo.

Aaaand I'm sitting at home about to start making my Palm Pilot Robot start doing Cool Stuff :)

We got the solder-free kit. We got another robot that did require solder and it broke as soon as we soldered something to it. *sigh*

Nice try, but...
so do I, and I am the one who soldered it (not that I work for MITRE). The robot had poor quality control and even worse documentation: it took me a lot of crossreferancing to figure out their abnormally cryptic wiring diagrams.
