This paper reports on a method and system which integrates human-computer interaction with reactive planning to operate a telerobot for use as an assistive device. The system is intended to meet the needs of individuals with physical disabilities and operate in an unstructured environment , rather than in a structured workcell. This allows the user(More)
A number of research and software development groups have developed name identification technology, but few have addressed the issue of cross-document coreference, or identifying the same named entities across documents. In a collection of documents, where there are multiple discourse contexts, there exists a many-to-many correspondence between names and(More)
A number of research and software development groups have developed technology for identifying terms and names in documents and associating them with concepts and named entities, but few have addressed coreference of concepts and entities across multiple documents in a collection. Cross-document coreference is challenging, since a collection of documents(More)
The goal of the Multimodal User Supervised Interface and Intelligent Control (MUSIIC) project is to develop an assis-tive manipulative robotic system for use in an unstructured environment by people with manipulatory disabilities. MUSIIC integrates a speech and pointing based human-machine interface with autonomous planning techniques from artificial(More)
The Multimodal User Supervised Interface and Intelligent C o n trol (MUSIIC) project is working towards the development of an assistive robot-ic system which integrates human-computer interaction with reactive planning techniques borrowed from artiicial intelligence. The MUSIIC system is intended to operate in an unstructured environment, rather than in a(More)
The multimodal user control interface strategy also makes the user an integral part of the robotic system. The multimodal control system uses the user's intelligence and senses to significantly augment its knowledge base, reactive planning and artificial sensing devices. This scheme allows the user to define the size, shape, color, location, name, etc. of(More)
