“People describe others as being robots because they have no emotions, no heart. For the first time in human history, we’re giving a robot a heart, capable of learning and expressing emotions.”
(Softbank CEO, Masayoshi Son)


Softbank’s PEPPER is a unique personal humanoid that…

…stands 4 feet tall with arms that move, but without legs, weighing 60 pounds…
…has a high-pitched boyish voice and speaks about 20 different languages…
…uses special sensors to detect people’s moods and how they behave…
…uses facial recognition technology to read and interpret emotions…
…interacts with the cloud to develop its own emotional capabilities…
…communicates using a tablet-like display mounted on its chest…
…provides friendly companionship for the lonely, sick or elderly…

Pepper is cutting edge technology – emotions are very hard to machine-capture…but there is something that Pepper technology will not be able to do…Pepper will not be able to semantically handle all the possible natural language permutations of the input instructions given to it by humans.

There are many ways of asking :  “make me a cup of tea” using different word combinations whilst ensuring overall consistent meaning with grammatically correct word combinations : “brew me a cup of  tea”… “I need a cuppa char” …”stew me some Red Bush”  …“make me a mug of tea”…

Current robot language processing abilities are linked to arbitrary parsing of elementary keywords from full human language grammar and syntax. Making sense of all individual words in conversational phrases to create a desired response is difficult. Robotic brains need to understand the meaning and context of sentences in relation to larger conversation chunks to be able to meaningfully react to given instructions. Gatfol parses small groups of words in larger word sets to create natural language semantic paths that enable robots to more effectively integrate keyword sets into the full semantic whole.
