Heather Knight is a social roboticist doing her doctoral research at Carnegie Mellon University. Through Data, a robot that tells jokes, she's exploring how robots might be able to pick up on human social cues so they can respond more appropriately. And who needs to respond to changing human moods more than a comedian in front of a crowd?
Here's a video of Data performing onstage at TED.
