iCub Robot Sings Jingle Bells

Bert, the iCub humanoid robot, sings Jingle Bells. Bert, who joined the Beckman in 2010, belongs to Stephen Levinson's Language Acquistion and Robotics Laboratory. Levinson and his group are training Bert to learn language as a child would, in order to gain insight into human psychology and neurophysiological development. In this video, Levinson lab member Jacob Bryan describes how he got Bert to sing. The iCub has a sense of touch (key for acquiring language, such as when learning to differentiate between a hard object and a soft object), its hands permit dexterous manipulation, and its head and eyes are fully articulated.
