Does schmoozing make robots clever?
A Belgian professor doing research for Sony wants to teach robots to be more like people--but he's running into some resistance.

Luc Steels, a professor at the University of Brussels and director of Sony's Computer Science Laboratories in Paris, believes that the breakthrough that will take robots beyond the Aibo stage will come from allowing them to express themselves--through interaction and through forming their own languages and even "cultures"--rather than from focusing strictly on how individual machines behave.
