Robots in an Interdisciplinary Course in the Liberal Arts

Ellen L Walker, Lee Braver

This paper describes the use of robots within an interdisciplinary course at a liberal arts college. The course, entitled "The Nature of Intelligence" covered the major paradigms of Artificial Intelligence and their application to robotics, including contemporary objections to those paradigms. The project required students to implement their own reactive robots, and to put those robots into an environment where intelligent behavior could be exhibited.
