... most complex acceptance _ever_

I just got accepted to the human-robot interaction program at Tufts. The Psychology department ended up pushing through an exception to their existing rule about adjunct faculty because I was such a good match, and the cognitive science committee just accepted me to the program, thereby allowing the interdisciplinary part.

Most complicated accepted _ever_, but it's an acceptance!

Very cool! In effect, I'm going to be trying to make verbal robot interactions with humans be more smooth, by helping figure out what sorts of nonverbal communication is vital to smooth communication between humans, as well as between a human and a robot.

Or at least, that's where my interest is. :)

So now you get to play with Asmiov's laws?

Those laws... gah. We'd need _far_ better intelligence in our robots for that to be possible to implement. :)

See above for my explanation of what it is that I hope to be working on (reply to elfy).
