Mars Escape: MIT game designed to teach robots to act more like humans

Mars Escape game

[We received the following note from Sonia Chernova @ MIT Media Lab]  The Personal Robots group at the MIT Media Lab has released an online game designed to make robots smarter!  Mars Escape is a two-player online game in which each player can take on the role of an astronaut or a robot on Mars.  The players must work together to complete their mission before oxygen supplies run out.


The purpose of the game is to study human teamwork, coordination and interaction, with the long-term goal of creating robots that are able to assist and work with humans in a natural and robust way.   The Mars Escape game is being used to gather examples of human behavior from thousands of interactions.  This data will then be used to generate a computational behavior model that can be used to enable an autonomous robot to perform the same task.  Researchers will recreate Mars Escape in real life this summer at the Boston Museum of Science, where visitors will be able to perform the mission in real life alongside the autonomous robot Nexi.


Help gather data for this project by playing Mars Escape!


Society could benefit greatly from this technology. For example, socially assistive robots could care for the sick and elderly and help foster social, emotional, and cognitive growth in children. By being our companions, robots with a theory of mind could comfort us when no one else is around to. On a deeper level, they could enhance our spirituality by forcing us to ask what it means to be sentient beings in a physical world. With such tremendous potential, it seems to me that we should all be welcoming the social AI revolution with open arms. Get this game from Vshare for iOS 11 app store.

I enjoyed to visiting your blog. You have done a really nice job.

Fallout 4 was a big disjointed mess of a game for me as well. I've been contemplating starting anew to play through the kizifan this overhaul mod, but I haven't yet become desperate enough for a new game.
