Full Summary:

Andrea Thomaz, assistant professor in Interactive Computing, has been named one of 2009’s Top Innovators Under 35 by MIT Technology Review. Thomaz’s research focuses on social interactions between robots and humans; her robots give visual cues—such as gestures and facial expressions—to indicate whether they understand what a person is telling them. Thomaz also develops machine learning methods to help robots more quickly learn physical tasks, particularly from teachers who are not necessarily programmers. Source: MIT Technology Review
