That’s the focus of new research out of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), which has come up with a new model for how humans can communicate with robots more effectively. Essentially, it all boils down to protecting humans from information overload, because robots can be programmed to gather huge amounts of information — way more than any human could process comfortably. Say there’s an emergency like…
