Robot-Human Interaction with Stefanie Tellex


Robots sometimes need help from humans when solving complex problems.

Successfully solving a problem often demands a strong model for communication and well-trained robots.

Stefanie Tellex is an assistant professor at Brown University whose research focuses on constructing robots that use natural language to communicate with humans.


  • The goal of your research is to construct robots that seamlessly use natural language to communicate with humans. How close are we to that goal?
  • Why is communication between robot and human a problem that is rooted in both linguistics and philosophy?
  • Why do we need a mathematical framework for communicating with robots?
  • Do robots perceive our physical environment in the same way that people do?
  • What is the future of human-robot interaction?
  • With artificial intelligence, are we summoning the demon, as Elon Musk says?
