Who is Kismet?

The Cog Project conducted in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has shown a new dimension on this issue and Kismet is the outcome of many of the various projects dealing with artificial intelligence. Kismet is a robot who is able to make many social interactions with people. Kismet can show many facial expressions while it tries to interact with the audience. Kismet is designed with a motivational system that is similar to the human system. This system appears to be in a homeostasis condition when the robot is motivated to learn the behaviors which are able to meet the needs.
