The AIBO Salon

AIBO stands for Artificial Intelligence roBOt, but also means "love" or "attachment" in Japanese, and is a robotic dog designed and manufactured by Sony. At this Salon you will have the opportunity to explore and play with one of the many AIBO robots living at the IOCT, with help on hand from experts who have been using AIBOs extensively in their research, writing and teaching. What kinds of stories do we tell about robots, and what stories are they collecting about us?
