Watch this Jacobs School alum have a conversation with a PR2
How do you spend your weekend if you're a Ph.D. student in the robotics program at the University of Washington? Well, if you're Justin Huang, the former president of TESC here at the Jacobs School, you hook up a chatterbot made by Pandorabots to a speech recognizer and synthesis and have a conversation with a PR2, the iconic robot designed as an R&D platform by Willow Garage.
Make sure you crank the volume all the way up so you can hear the robot's answers.
A big thanks to Justin, who allowed us to post this video.
Below is a picture of Justin with his new friend.
